'Why Do You Hate Us?' 'Because You're Mexicans'
Esteban Guzman is a 27-year-old US citizen living in California.
He is also Mexican.
These things are not mutually exclusive.
Earlier this week, Esteban was out doing landscaping work with his mother, when from out of the darkness loomed a bob-haired racist, shouting at them to ‘go back to Mexico’. Look at this creature, apparently summoned just by Esteban and his mother having the nerve to exist. The state of this Trump-echoing cretin:
A friend, Esteban Guzman sent me this video of a racist white woman harassing him while out working with his mom.— therealkenidrawoods (@KenidraRWoods_) June 25, 2018
"Why do you hate us?"
"Because you're Mexicans."
"We are honest people right here!"
"Haha..yeah.. rapists & animals."

Esteban wrote about the vile abuse he suffered on his Facebook page. The post was deleted by Facebook shortly afterwards for apparently violating the site’s community standards. To which the only response is: ‘You fucking what, Facebook? You shallow-headed swine. The amount of heinous shit you allow to remain on your platform without so much as raising an eyebrow, and this is what you remove? Right-wing hate speech and hysteria-inducing bullshit gets free rein but someone reporting the reality of what it’s like to live in an America in which racists feel bold enough to terrorise people in broad daylight—oh that’s a step too far, huh? That violates your community standards? Go fuck yourselves, you complicit wankmerchants. You can shove your community standards up your narrow be-pustuled arse.’
Despite Facebook’s unbelievable fuckery, Esteban’s message was preserved thanks to his friend Kenidra.
His message to people who voted for Trump: "We are honest, hardworking, and respectful people. PLEASE WE NEED TO WORK TOGETHER TO STOP RACISM!" No one should be made to feel less than. I am outraged for him. This is not okay 2/2 pic.twitter.com/pns4rkBc2K— therealkenidrawoods (@KenidraRWoods_) June 25, 2018
Here's a picture of my friend Esteban Guzman, a college graduate. Despite what the racist white woman said — he's not a rapist, neither does he sell drugs. He's a hardworking man who truly inspires me.❤️ pic.twitter.com/F1e6dM3mhi— therealkenidrawoods (@KenidraRWoods_) June 25, 2018
Here's a special message from Esteban! "We stand together as a country of immigrants. We will no longer be silenced." He thanks all of you and believes we should all come together in love to stop racism 🙏🏼 pic.twitter.com/LNwNZwi72O— therealkenidrawoods (@KenidraRWoods_) June 25, 2018
Goddamn White Women.
These racists are the people who preach civility in the face of bigotry and violence. These are the people who are lucky every single time their racism isn’t met with a vicious haymaker to the face.
