Fire and Ashes

Go look at this map, and come back.

On that map is a restaurant named Mariachi's Mexican Bar and Grill. The restaurant was vandalized, burned, and had racist grafitti placed upon it. There's a price to be paid for Anti-Immigrant rhetoric.

Perhaps they had a Mexican Flag outside. Or maybe they sang the Star Spangled Banner in Spanish. Or perhaps they just had Brown Skin. At any rate they paid the price.

I got this story from Orcinus, who has noted in the past that this kind of activity is not as rare as you would like to think it is.
