When is enough enough

When is enough enough?! I was asking myself this the other day in regards to so many events in my life this past week and a half. At the ripe old age of 24, I just had my first encounter with racism, against myself. This all started at the beginning of the year when I was most involved with a student organization. We started to discuss political issues that involved the border, this is when it all began.

These discussions would snowball into complaints about people of Mexican decent, and the telling of raciest jokes in my presence, about my heritage. I was starting to feel hurt, and a little confused, I mean are we not all attending the same university, working similar jobs, and in the same organization?! I was a little hurt, but like an idiot I did nothing, but just cry and then think that I was over reacting to the whole thing.

Then the day came, where I felt singled out, and the group intended to do this, biased on my race alone. They asked me if my grandfather and my father made honest livings in this country that was so nice to not send them back. I was crushed, these were once people who I hung out with, and who I worked side by side with on political campaigns. It seemed like I was only good enough for them when I was working to help them, but now, I saw how they were. These people have not one compassionate bone in their bodies, and I am not just saying that because I am bitter, these people didn't want hurricane Katrina Victims to stay in our dorms, just because of their race, they thought they would be more likely to commit crimes. There are so many more events that proves my point, but there is not enough time, and I don't want to say too much either.

I didn't cry this time, no, I decided to fight back maybe. I though these ideas were long gone, these ideas of superiority, but I guess not. All I want to know is when is enough enough?!

    It is important that all hispanics voice out these incidents as soon as they happen, otherwise we loose credibility, unfortunately. I read the higher ed article on this subject and wondered what threats were made to you in order to say there was no problem during the speaker phone conversation. Suerte y Exito

    Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

    Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

    Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

    The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

    We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
