This is emblematic of a larger issue of viewing everything through a racial lens and where people, white or black, view Latinos as trying to prove themselves to be accepted among white people. I've experienced/seen racism from woke/progressive people in a similar way as below.
I've been called a race traitor and a coconut (which admittedly is funny) for reporting the facts at BLM riots and the border. I know I'll never be white. I don't go out there for white people's approval. I go out there to report what's happening. That's it.
I'm proud of my Mexican heritage but I don't use it as a crutch to try to get ahead. I let my work speak for itself. Who cares if I'm Hispanic? As long as I report accurately, which I always strive to do, then that's all that should matter.
Tying everything through one or a few attributes you happen to be born as/with is so tiresome. But some people, as shown above, has to view every action through that one or two lenses. Idk, it's just all so boring and laugh-worthy if it wasn't so sad.

On the ground in Brooklyn Center, MN for @townhallcom. Rioters are throwing projectiles and shooting fireworks at police guarding the city’s police building. Police are firing tear gas and flashbangs. Video to come.
This is what the back and forth between the rioters and police looks like in Brooklyn Center, MN.
Because officers were occupied with guarding the Brooklyn Center police building, stores nearby, like this Dollar Tree, was ransacked by looters.

With former Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan and former Acting ICE Director Tom Homan in La Joya, TX. We’ve been in the area for 20 minutes and have already encountered over 100 illegal immigrants.
One thing I’ve noticed about these groups tonight is there is a lot more coughing among them than previous groups this past week.
My interview with Morgan and Homan from last night:

"We warned the Biden administration. We told them that if they did what they promised they were going to do during the campaign...that they were going to create an unmitigated crisis."

On the ground in the Rio Grande Valley with the Hidalgo County Constable for @townhallcom. They’re one of the only agencies allowing ride alongs for media.

We have been in the area for 30 minutes and 62 illegal immigrants, many unaccompanied minors, have crossed.
To cap off the night in a different area of the RGV, just ran into a group of 13 illegal immigrants who have turned themselves into Border Patrol.
Was about to call it a night but groups of migrants keep showing up. This is about 73 people, some of them have small children, who came within about 25 minutes of each other.

Just spent three hours right on the U.S.-Mexico border and I’m still in shock at how many people illegally crossed during that time. I knew it was happening, but it’s different when you see it up close. Story to come on what I saw. I will say this is definitely a crisis.
In 3 hours, 263 immigrants made their way towards the processing site Border Patrol has set up after they illegally crossed into the US. That number is just the people who wanted to be caught and it included women, small children, and unaccompanied minors:… ImageImage
As if to highlight how many people were crossing over, some got lost from their group after it became dark. Myself, a BP agent, and their "leader" went out to find them. We kept coming across other groups of immigrants before finding the lost ones:… Image

On the ground in Portland, Ore. for @townhallcom. A group of Antifa marchers just attacked the city’s Democratic Party office. They broke windows and spray painted the building.

Some of them had a hard time breaking the windows.
The group left after Portland police rolled up. Some photos of the aftermath.
One of the banners the Antifa group had while marching. Taken before the Democratic Party building in Portland was attacked.
