    What did I think about "Latino in America"? Well I only caught the second part, and let me start off by saying that I personally think that no matter what your race may be it will always be very difficult to document your culture, your traditions, your struggles, and your success in two days. This showed a "stereotypical" Latino, but that is just a stereotype! There are successful Latinos, that are good people.

    i think that it is crazy that people dont want to help other people. I mean the latino's are tryin to leave there countries to get better lives and get work to help support there family. If you were put in there situation then you would do the same thing. im not saying it is right to ignore the "problem" just monitor it and critique the minor inconveniences along the way. Give everyone a chance. before you decide
