Hate crimes have risen steadily since 2016, and Latinos say they feel vulnerable: ‘It rattles you at your core’
The first time someone called Lidia Carrillo a “wetback” she had to ask her teacher what the slur meant. She was only 13, and had recently moved to California from Jalisco, Mexico, with her parents and six siblings.
Carrillo had tried to explain that her family hadn’t crossed any river, but it didn’t matter. “They looked at us differently,” she recalled.
The more that negative stereotypes are accessible and the more that they’re amplified … it’s not unexpected they’ll be acted on.
The climate of fear is heightened more than I’ve ever seen it in my life.
