I am Hispanic, born and raised in New York. I served in the Marine Corps from 1988 to 1992 and was stationed in Jacksonville, NC. I was on my way to Fayetteville to visit some friends and got lost on the way. I stopped at some convenience store to ask for directions and was met with this statement…. I clearly heard,, “Get out: You don’t belong here…. I can’t recall when I have ever feared more for my life.
