I’ve been reading about and trying to understand this stuff for a while now. As per usual, I didn’t really get a handle on it until I set out to write about it in my own words. If you have problems with stress, maybe it’ll help you too.

He then added that these people “are fueling a campaign of hate that labels Hispanic immigrants as ‘invaders.’

Some of these people have been harassed or threatened (audio below) as a result of Castro’s incitement. Continue reading
