Here’s What Doesn’t Make Sense about Latinos in College:
1. Why is college is seen as a necessity, but priced as a luxury?
Really though. We’re all expected to go to college, and you would think with such a high demand, it’d become a little more affordable, right?
Prices keep increasing, but we’ve kind of come to terms with it. It’s just one of those things we don’t really have control over. (And thank goodness for scholarships!) But this second point is something we can’t fathom…
2. Why are people on campus still looking at us like we don’t belong? Why are they acting like they’ve never seen a Latino go to college?
Please, it’s time to get real. Latinos are soon going to be the largest population in the US, so we shouldn’t be looked at as strangers… anywhere. Just like second generation student at the University of Notre Dame, Celeste Villa-Rangel, we’re kicking ass on and off campus.
These immigration policies could decide whether or not your family is ripped apart by deportation. The supreme court will rule on Obama’s proposed DACA and DAPA in June, 2016. Get informed here and get the word out.
“We are told that we drain the country of it’s benefits and resources.”
No more “you don’t look American.” No more calling us “criminals.” No more. Diego Boneta, Nicholas González and Vanessa Vasquez are just a few of the celebs lending their voice to the #WeAreAmerica campaign to set the record straight about Latino Americans in the United States.
