But during our discussion he told me that I was going to have a hard time in life. Because I don’t conform to society norm, I view the world in a critical or analytical lens.
The authors show this by their diction and tone, as well as sharing stories about the discrimination they've experienced. Throughout the articles it is easy to tell that the authors are upset with the situation.

At first i was confused because as a 9 year old with no experience with racism I did not know what was going on. I thought I was doing something wrong but when I asked my mom why all these things were happening she explained that many people in our area were not accustomed to seeing hispanics or people from different races like I was. She told me to ignore the remarks and to try to be a good person so that they could see me for who I really was instead of the race that I was. Some time passed and the racist remarks did not get better, I tried being nice and people still treated me like an outcast. As I grew older I learned that
She believes her accent is something that defines her. She explains “Chicano Spanish is considered by the purist and by most Latinos deficient, a mutilation of Spanish” (Anzaldua, pg.35).

I didn't know how to react and had a mixed feeling about this change. I was excited to see a new city and experience their culture but I also had an anxiety whether I would be able to fit in that new society where people may share a completely opposite view.
