I’ve been around racists all my life. It comes with the territory being a Mexican in America. We’re like the new black. There are certainly people that treat me a certain way just because of the color of my skin.

Allegations of racism only leads to more racism.  Can't we just all get along?

I’ve also noticed as a third party observer that there is another form of racism taking hold of our country, “being scared of being racist”. White people will let black people do almost anything no matter how inappropriate without saying much if anything. If they break a law, sure, whitey will step in and send them to jail, but if the subject offers anything beneficial to white society, most any indiscretion will be overlooked. Likewise, almost any crime perpetrated by a Mexican or a black against the other race will never even get investigated.

Here we are staring a perfect example in the face. A month ago, Kanye West made headlines for being an asshole. Today, Beyonce makes headlines for not only condoning his behavior, but understanding where he’s coming from. All in the name of art. A-R-T.

You see, she thinks she should have won the award and not Taylor Swift. That’s fine – I get being pompous. I’m as egotistical as they come, but I never think my ego should walk all over yours after I lose. That’s fucking stupid.

The real question is: when white people look past these horrible behaviors and lame excuses, is it racism? What would have been the response to Brian Littrell if he had stormed on stage and grabbed the microphone out of Beyonce’s hand? Would there have been a riot?Would Mexicans have been further persecuted?

You know the answer.
