New stories about unequal treatment

We think of segregation as a thing of the past, but there are still many instances of unequal treatment—some more subtle than others. This week on Latino USA: a woman fights to bury her Latino husband after he was denied burial in a “whites only” cemetery in Texas. U.S. citizens who are the children of undocumented immigrants are being denied college scholarships in South Carolina. And Salma Hayek talks about her new film, Beatriz at Dinner, that takes on the question: what does it mean to be Latino in a white space? Language advisory: there is a racial slur that is not bleeped in the episode.
