“Usually when we hung out we would criticized for hanging together because we all had a different background.”

This (anti-immigration hate speech) occurred  in elementary school towards my friends. A few of them recently moved from India, another from Russia and China. Usually when we hung out we would criticized for hanging together because we all had a different background. They would call us mixed breed, impure and throw random stuff at us. A few of us had been told to go back home because of our accents or if we smelled different or even ate food that was deemed unacceptable for our culture.
