Avocados are overrated and over used. Like do we have to put it on everything? I lived in Mexico for 4 years and I never saw the level of usage you see in the US.
I said what I said
There have been attempts at snatching my brown card for this but deep inside if you are Latino you know it’s true....

Why do I have to fight my son to take a bath and to get out of the bath? Is this a think with all kids?
FML looking at all the answers from the parents.
He just farted and asked me why I didn’t laugh. “farts are funny” he said.
I am trying not to laugh.... parenting is hard.

This how the 1% look at minorities. I was a classmate of Kushner let me tell you what I did to get into Harvard compared to what he did. Yes a thread.
My freshman year of HS. I realized that the only way college was gonna happen was that first I had to do well on my exams. So I started buying used prep exam books and copying exams from the library. The school librarian is a close friend to this day. (Thanks Mrs. Conley)
I was lucky enough to have a job that let me practice my tests in between flipping burgers. (Thank you Steve and Souzy’s) I used that money to pay for extracurriculars that would look good on a college resume. Even went to Greece on exchange.

I saw my best friends die & for months I patrolled among Iraqis I knew there were insurgents in the towns & the crowds. I felt their eyes when I patrolled through the markets. I was filled with rage when they took my best friend. Did I want to exact my revenge on all of them?
I did. What stopped me? Several things did. Once I felt death was getting closer to me I realized that if death came I wanted to leave this world with a clean conscious. I would not become the monsters that were trying to kill me and other innocent Iraqis.
I realized too that if I survived the war that I would have to live with what I did. I had to come back home with my honor and humanity. Serve honorably, don’t cower when the bullets fly and bring as many of my friends home.

Growing up I used to hear “go back to Mexico” from many kids, though I was born in the USA. I thought then that it was just kids.
I got to high school and thought that would change. I was a good student, Student Council President etc... was still told by other students to go back to Mexico.
I joined the Marine Corps. Fought in some of the hardest battles and still carry the mental scars. I return to Arizona and I am told again to return to Mexico.
