Just because I’m Latino

Just because I’m Latino

I’m not stupid

I’m not a cholo

I’m not in gangs

Just because I’m Latino
`
I don’t have papers

I’m not poor

And I don’t live in a house with 30 people

Just because I’m Latino

I’m not going to graduate from high school

I don’t have to be good in soccer

And I don’t work in a taco stand

Just because I’m Latino

It doesn’t mean your smarter then me better then me

Or even going to have a better job then me

Just because I’m Latino

Why does it matter to you if I’m Latino?

What is color?

What should I care what you think?

Just because I’m Latino
