Racism Against Immagrants

This did not happen to me, but this is a true story.
"Today in downtown San Diego, I saw a blue collar Mexican man being harassed for being Mexican. It was a blatant act of discrimination. And the man actually began crying. As he left the office building, he took off his jacket. His t-shirt underneath read, "I love the USA!"
I believe that this was just wrong and that discrimination should not happen. What does a different color skin have to do with anything! I can't believe how this man must have felt! Even worse, his shirt underneath said "I love the USA!" and since he loves his new nation, why should people make fun of him? I hope he still loves the US, because those people who teased him must have really left a bad impression of America. They're not just hurting others, they're hurting themselves and this very nation.
