I hear you.<quoted text> You are right.I was made fun of day in and day out because of my background.It felt horrible being called
ugly names.I would get in to fights at school.I had to defend myself from all that.I was not going to take sh** from no one.
I fought and fought until I gained their respect.Then from then on
that is when I developed a hatred towards Mexicans.I have always loved and appreciated my Puerto Rican side,but hated the Mexican half.
But, you and I grew stronger in the process and what's important is not where is we come from but where are going (and what are we going to do with all the accumulated experience).
You and I have so many blessings.
For ex., you have the priviledge of having and belonging to three different cultures (and the Mexican one, is the richest of them all).
Your Mexican side has inherited thousands of years of one the greatest civilizations the world has ever known.
Your Puerto Rican roots go back for thousands of years.
And you belong to the greatest nation of all time, the USA.
That's no small sh...t!
