“A Disgrace to Your Own Race”

Magale Velasquez,
Balch Springs, TX

As female born in the USA but raised in Mexico until the age of 15, moving to Dallas, Tx and learning English in a short amount of time while trying to assimilate to the culture as to not be looked down upon by other races because of the language barrier; I personally have found that majority of those who judge a Latino is yet another Latino who dislikes when one chooses to speak English and calls them out for “acting white” while having a “Cactus on your forehead”.
