Seen It With My Own Eyes

047Elizabeth Swenson,
Hacienda Heights, CA.

I went to school in NC were it was predominately black & white in2006. My husband and the majority of my friends are Hispanic or Spanish descent. I never really though racism exist coming from LA, CA were its divers. But here I saw people say nasty things, dirty looks, and jesters that made me feel uncomfortable. It’s a lot better now that the state is growing but moving to NC was a culture shock.

    You may not have experienced direct racism but it’s hard to grasp that you didn’t know it existed. There are plenty of examples in the news.

    Everybody has issues.maybe you can form a support group for VICTIMS, like yourself. Once upon a time people were strong enough to handle anything.
