And by the way, it's a good day for me to reflect on this, as I spent yesterday in the County Hospital Clinic downtown, a place where we were really, truly the only non-Hispanics there, and English is not the first language.
One other "American" name was called, Russ Altman, but he wasn't there to answer, so I never got to see him. I remarked at the name, obviously non-Hispanic, at least the name. Totally out of place, as we were. Let me tell you, they don't like us. We experienced REVERSE discrimination. You cannot get a smile, people stare, and not kindly. When they are in the majority, the place is theirs. And they don't like us. There are many reasons for this, but it doesn't make it any better. It exists. Reverse discrimination exists, when they can get away with it. You know nothing of their culture as people who live in SoCal do.
