        The upper classes of Latin America don't just treat their poor badly.  They treat them as if they were an alien, conquered people.  I recall a Hunter Thompson article from the early '60s about the process of how Yankee visitors there absorb these prejudices from the rich locals they hang out with - after all, it's easier than admitting that Yankees and elites are in a partnership to keep the masses in the Dark Ages.  I've seen the same things myself in the Philippines.

        It's a tough basis on which to construct solidarity among immigrants, but then look at the political changes sweeping Latin America in the last 10 years.  Something is awakening.
