It is always so disappointing to read the comments on newspaper articles that have anything to do with Hispanics. They always seem to detour to the topic of immigration, or more accurately, anti-immigration. Does this mean that the sentiment is in the majority, or is it only a small vocal minority? Comments are pretty “safe” avenues to share your thoughts and/or stereo-typing and bigotry – you don’t even have to put your real name just pick a catchy moniker like “Cowboy Bob”, or “Britanicus”, or some other silly creation. I have added my own comments in the past for my local online newspaper, if only to try to add another viewpoint. It is an uphill climb but we was Catholics are called to engage these issues and target our society and culture. Still, it is very sad.
