Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

ABC What would you do?

with one comment

I just say the episode where the two hispanics walked into a deli in New Jersey and the cashier was an actor for ABC. The two Hispanic men were trying to order food but had trouble trying to order it because they could not speak english. The actor started saying stuff like go back on your truck, go back to your country, and we speak english here. I was surprised to see how many more people (customers) were rooting him on with the comments he was sayign to these hispanics. Most people I know would just act like nothing ever happened and ignore it but a lot of people in the store who were actual customers were agreeing with him and saying nasty things to them. When one of the hispanic men were interviewed he mentioned how he felt so bad that he wanted to cry and honestly I almost wanted to cry by him saying that because even though it is only a show the point is that these things really happen and being hispanic it hurts me that we would get treated this way, no one for that matter should get treated that way. At the end there was a white man who stood up for them and started yelling at the cashier and told him thats not how you treat people. It made me happy to know that there are some people out there that would stand up and not turn a blind side to racism. I wish more and more people were like this and did there part in changing this society from being so racist.

  1. I had to make a comment to this post right away since this is what really pisses mr off the most. But, what gets me mad here is the fact that those two poor men did not defend themselves we Hispanics are just as any other ethnicy group and we should not allow other people to try to put us down or make us feel bad about ourselves! Ughh!
