Everyone is equal, even though it is not shown. As a Mexican American in this time of age can be difficult, in the way as the reputation set upon us by others.When i was having a conversation with somebody, the conversation was about what i wanted to be when i grew up,my answer was i could be whatever i want because its my decision. Well this person said to me, you cant be whatever you want, u cant be the president of the united states because they will never accept a Latino woman as their president, their leader. My answer to this person was I could be president if i wanted to because i would make that commitment, i could do anything a man could do in this position, i could even do things better in this position! Although i said all this i thought to myself, how sad it is for this country to be this far away from all the segregation of the past that we still have a part of that horrible era stuck to us.This we will always have, a part of the side we hate of ourselves.
