HyperAllergic News Article
Based on my internet activity; I would be labeled a Latino, psycho, drug addict (I am drug free) instead of an undergraduate, full time worker.
I am tired of the division between lifestyle. A person is either a poor drug addict or a working 'square.'
I don't do drugs no more (don't ask what kind of drugs) but I am sure their are pictures of me high as hell on the internet that would be used on the news if I died. I work full time and am enrolled in an university. Did it all under the influence in the past so no one can tell me drugs ruined my life or I'm just an ignorant addict.
Again, let me reiterate that I do not use drugs at all including alcohol and cigarettes. I am not advocating drug use. Just stating if I died, yeah then I am another druggie killed, like Trayvon Martin or Micheal Brown.
My kind, my association, are illegal ghetto drunk drug addict construction workers who could never do right. No doubt if I got gunned down, I would be another statistic; a gang banging Latino kid off the streets.
How would you be remembered?
