Tired of bad news about Latinos

May 16, 2013 

In response to the letter "Tired of news about Latinos" (May 11): I share your frustration. I also have noticed an inordinate amount of print geared towards Latinos, most of it negative.

As a proud Latino American husband and father, I try to live up to Christian standards passed down from my parents, which they received from their parents, etc. I guess what I'm trying to convey is just because you read about us everyday, there is so much more substance to our people than what the humble Modesto Bee chooses fit to print.

My people and yours, Mr. Letter Writer, have more in common than you realize.
