Go Back…


“I had a bad experience today,” Carlos told his wife, Candis.

“What happened?”

“I was in a convenience store, getting bottled water when a white woman walked up to me and told me to go back to where I came from.  After I recovered from my shock, I informed her that I was born in this country and I have as much right to be here as she does.  Then, I got my water and walked away.”

“Good for you.”

“They judge us and treat us like we’re criminals.”

“And we’re Americans just like them.”
