I'm a born Costa Rican and naturalized American citizen. That's just an ethical perspective of me so you won't read the following statement with a biased perspective. Wouldn't the title "Obama Fires Record Number of Hispanics" be widely accepted as controversial? If so, wouldn't the opposite connotation be considered widely accepted because it's the opposite of "Obama Fires Record Number of Hispanics." I'm simply asking in curiosity, but wouldn't all people see each other in equal light if we were all acknowledged equally as well?
