Color of skin

The reason I choose this picture is because it has a lot to do with the article that I read by Tanya Golash- Boza, she argued that a lot of times Latino immigrants felt discouraged to assimilate because they were still being judged by the color of their skin. This young man is saying just that by holding up this poster, and I think it is really sad that he has to go through being sterotyped at such a young age. Some people might not agree but I think that there is nothing wrong with people wanting to be “American”, these “white” people should be flattered instead of upset.
