Just read this story on Taylor. I am blown away by the part where the author says an "elderly man was heckling her about her race and baby fat". I would love to have seen someone go up and bust him right in the nose!
Even in 2012, with Obama as our president, the sad fact is that there is
still quite a bit of racism in the U.S. It's a bit more veiled and less open
but definitely still there. Less so in the NE and west coast, though.

Also, ironic that the U.S. was a country created by illegal immigrants and
today there are still many people against immigration.
