It happened to me recently when I was participating in a forum on stereotyping Latinos. A guest presenter was speaking to students at Western New Mexico University. The students were mostly first-generation college undergrads of Hispanic ethnicity.
As the presenter shared his insights, the students’ eyes began to open. They were listening and taking in every word. And when the question and answer period started, they were ready to unload.
