Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

(DWL) Driving While Latino!!

I found this interesting article about racial profiling in Texas!
This article made me extremely angry for the simple fact that they stop “hispanic looking people” and arrested them for “not speaking English”!!! Obviously there is going to be a lot of hispanic residents and immigrants being that Mexico and Texas are adjacent to each other. I think that Texas legal system needs to review their laws again because arresting someone for not speaking English is absurd and it defeats the purpose of U.S. being the “Land of opportunity” & even more it defeats the immigration system.

  1. Yeah this is absolutely ridiculous. I don’t know how this got approved by anyone. Hopefully by putting this in the media something gets done to resolve this. Our country just keeps surprising me with all the stupid things that go in our legal system.
