Reply To: Reply To: Seeing the light (skin)


I sometimes get discriminated against by other Hispanics. I am a dark-skinned Hispanic, and right away, others who see me speak to me in Spanish. Most of the time I have no idea what they are saying. Both of my parents are deaf mute, and so of course I had to learn English. When I would stay with my grandmother, she would talk to me in English. When a Hispanic would talk to me in Spanish and I responded in English, I would get the third degree. I would be asked why I don't speak Spanish, that that was my culture and I should be proud of it. I am proud of my culture, but I cannot control it if my relatives did not speak to me in Spanish.
