This Woman Proves Racism Stems From Pure Ignorance

This right here is what’s wrong with the world. People acting out of spite and hate towards a different race. Judging someone without knowing them . “You, your kind give the brown people a bad name” first off, my mother is legal in the United States. My father has worked hard in the oil rigs so my mother can raise her children and give us a very privileged life. They always pay their taxes and have had absolutely no government help. They have taught us to help people and to work hard to earn the life we want. My parents have sacrificed so much so much for us and it breaks my heart the way they get treated because of their broken English. I know they can speak english. And I know my mother understood every single word they said. But how can you respond to that when you see your child crying because he doesn’t understand why they are saying that. What do you do when your 6 year old grand daughter is so scared she can’t stop crying in the car. They say the way you treat people speaks more about your character and who YOU are as a person. These women are a disgrace to humanity over all. America is a diverse country. And that’s what makes it such a wonderful place to be a part of. We are all human beings trying to survive. Remember that next time you are trying to bring yourself up by putting someone down.

“This right here is what’s wrong with the world.”

Wendy Flores said it best: “This right here is what’s wrong with the world.” Wendy was in a parking lot with her family in Grand Junction, Colo., when another woman started attacking her mom with racial slurs. The woman began with, “Your kind. You’re the ones who give brown people a bad name.” Wendy’s mom remained calm. When she told her family in Spanish that she had the right to record what’s happening, the woman snapped back “speak English b*tch!” She continued “Down with Mexicans who don’t learn the language of the world.” Wendy’s brother then began crying and pleading their mom to stop recording and the video ends.

Here’s what Wendy wrote on her Facebook page:

As for English being “the language of the world” Ummmm… I’ll just drop this here:

Yes, that’s Spanish coming in at a strong #2, ahead of “the language of the world.”
