So I went on an International trip from New Mexico where I'm from to Germany. Yeah, Lay Over in Denver, no problem, but when I finally reached Frankfurt the airport personell followed me around like I was a criminal. I'm hispanic my bad. I hated feeling like I was doing something wrong. They double checked my luggage and made me clean out my backpack. I had never been so embarrased in my life. I grew up a little better than most so I was simply not used to feeling like a criminal especially when I'd been looking forward to this trip my whole year.
This wasn't the only incident though. When I was in Dallas I went to one of the more expensive malls and was followed around like I was about to steal something. I felt like someone got onto the walkies for security and said, 'HEY!!! Watch the mexican she looks suspicious.' Maybe I just grew up in NM too long. Here i'm the normal, the majority, and the change of security was enough to make me miss home.
