They asked why I wasn’t working…

Just because I am hispanic, does not mean I should be working on your lawn… I was walking one day early in the morning after a run and I noticed some hispanic guys working on a lawn on a house with an odd machine. So I stopped and asked what they were doing. I finished the conversation with these very nice gentlemen from Guatemala. And I started walking away when the owner of the house came out supposedly to “check on the progress” and said “get back to work!” in a very aggressive way… First of all, I am 16 years old I don’t even look like I should be working anyways… REALLY? And you can’t just assume because I look like what YOU think is hispanic, that I should be working, making all your flowers pretty.
