This Is What Latinos Think Everyone Got Wrong About El Paso

But all day on Sunday, the day after the shooting in El Paso, hardened advocates became emotional while explaining what it’s like to live in the United States after a killer drove 10 hours to kill Mexicans, Latinos and immigrants. The next day I still felt restless after a conversation with a friend. She had been crying because her husband overheard white men at the community pool remarking that while they didn’t agree with the killings — how magnanimous — they, too, didn’t want white people to be “wiped out” and for Hispanics to “take over.”

2. In the fascist transformation the ethnic

majority is convinced to see themselves as the victims of the chosen “others” in order to justify the use of violence against the target groups.

3. I can't imagine what these people are going through.

They are under threat of some crazy every day. To be in such fear and not be able to live your life. It’s heartbreaking and makes me really fucking angry.

4. While Hispanic peoples share a darker skin

than I, we share a birth right to this land. We are all Americanos, from the southern tip of Chili to the North Pole. It makes no difference whomever dominates in numbers, we all have a love for our special continent and likewise share the responsibility to preserve all of its glory.
