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:

A Mexican-American Mother Was Beaten Until She Was Unconscious By Her Son’s Racist School Bully

A Mexican-American Mother Was Beaten Until She Was Unconscious By Her Son’s Racist School Bully

We’re pretty sure this latest incident is our country’s newest low.

According to The New York Post, a 35-year-old New Jersey woman by the name of Beronica Ruiz was beaten until she was unconscious by a 13-year old boy who bullied her son.

According to reports, the day before the beating, Ruiz had filed a former complaint about her son’s tormenter and his alleged harassment of her son.

Her son, whose name is being kept private because he is a minor, claimed that he was bullied by the 13-year-old on June 18. At the time, Ruiz’s son said that the bully and a few other boys had chanted “Mexicans should go back behind the wall” to him other boys in the cafeteria.

In response, the Ruiz family’s lawyer, Daniel Santiago, says that her son replied: “We all come from immigrants.”

When Ruiz’s son received further threats from the students, he became fearful for his safety and reported the incident to a teacher who sequestered him from the other boys.

Attempts to notify Ruiz’s parents about the incident did not happen.

Santiago says that she did not find out about the incident until her son came home and he told her that he was too afraid to go to school the next day.

According to the Washington Post Ruiz and her husband returned to the school that evening and complained to the school’s assistant vice principal that they had not been alerted of the events. Santiago says that the vice principle replied that he had simply forgotten to call them.

“That’s a woefully inadequate response,” Santiago said. “’My bad’ is not a good excuse for not calling (the parents), not telling them.”

Ruiz picked up her son from school the day after the incident in the cafeteria happened.

She walked him home while pushing her 1-year-old daughter in a stroller. When they were just a few blocks away from the school, Ruiz’s son alerted his mother that they were being followed by the boys who had bullied him the previous day in the cafeteria. Soon after, the 13-year-old boy allegedly attacked Ruiz and her son. First, he punched Ruiz’s son in the face and then when the mother attempted to intervene he punched and “threw her to the ground” which caused her to lose consciousness.

This was a brutal hate crime, and it was committed by a 13-year-old,” Santiago said. “I don’t know what circumstances could give rise to a 13-year-old boy having such hate in his heart that he would commit this brutal attack and leave a woman essentially to die in front of her children without any remorse or any twinge of conscience.”

Ruiz was hospitalized for two days after the alleged attack.

Pictures of Ruiz’s face are brutal. In a photo circulating online, Ruiz’s face is marked with bruises and her eye is visible injured. She reportedly suffered from facial fractures and a concussion.

Earlier this week, the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office announced that the 13-year-old bully, who fled the scene, had been arrested. He has been charged and faces one count of aggravated assault and one count of simple assault.

According to Santiago, the 13-year-old returned to the school the day after the attack.

Meanwhile, Ruiz and her husband are Mexican and in the United States awaiting green cards while holding work permits. Both of their children were born here and are American citizens.

Santiago says that he doesn’t “know that a child is able to fully understand and comprehend the implications of his words and saying things like ‘You should go back to Mexico… But this was clearly generated from hatred, and clearly, this young man has a great deal of anger in his heart, and that’s sad for a whole other list of reasons.”

White Couple Goes Home Shirtless After They Tried To Come For Latinos By Calling Them ‘Beaners’ During Road Rage Incident

White Couple Goes Home Shirtless After They Tried To Come For Latinos By Calling Them ‘Beaners’ During Road Rage Incident

We’ve all experienced road rage at least once in our lifetime. If you commute every day, then it’s probably more of a daily occurrence. The way you choose to deal with the road rage could result in damage to your mental state, to your car, or the other driver. We’ve seen countless of stories in which a simple case of road rage can turn deadly, or plain ugly.

A white couple pulled over to confront a Latino couple in a terrible case of road rage where things escalated quickly.

We’re not sure what transpired before the passengers in the video began recording. What is clear is that the white couple pulled ahead of them (on the freeway), stopped the car and began to come at the Latino family aggressively.

You can hear the passengers calling the police way before the white couple even steps out of the car.

The white woman approached the Latino family and it seemed things only got worse after the white lady referred to them as “beaners.”

That is when all hell broke loose. It’s as if the white couple had no idea that this Latino couple would retaliate against them, and did they ever.

The white couple backed off only after the Latino couple went after them physically after calling them beaners.

This is a new fighting tactic we have never seen, at least when it comes to road rage. The Latino couple was not going to let the other family get away without a proper fight.

Here’s how people on social media reacted to the instance of racism that led to this point.

So it’s officially true: women have the first and last word, always.

The white couple sure had a loud bark but not much of a bite.

The fear was clear once they got close enough to see who was in the car. Before that, it was clear that the first couple to get out of the car was ready to throw down.

Whoever was recording could be the next Martin Scorsese.

The 911 operator was trying his best to find out what was going on but it is hard to understand the person giving directions.

When you get pushed to the edge so often, you will break at some point.

At least they have a recording that proves the other couple started it.

In the end, people on social media are siding with the Latino family caught up in the road rage incident.

Violence is never the answer but it is important to be ready to defend yourself. Honestly. this father was ready to defend his family.

A lot of people saw the whole situation as a no-win situation given the current state of our government and distrust in police.

That is why we have to keep recording at all times.

Here’s the entire video below.
