George Zimmerman Proves Latinos Can Be Racist, Too – Part 2 | Care2 Causes

One has to wonder if there would have been so much outrage about this incident if Zimmerman had an hispanic last name. It seems to me that the kneejerk response that this was racially motivated is based on lots of assumptions, one of which being he was white because he had an anglo-saxon surname, though he is obviously latino. There is plenty of racism on the part of latinos and blacks towards one another as well as towards whites, in fact there have been latino gangs who target black people, though this gets almost no press. It is time that we grow up and realize that everyone is capable of prejudice and that we all have our biases based on our experience, but it’s not more ok to be racist if you are a minority.
