In high school, I was one of only a few hispanics on my campus. I started a La Raza Club and dealt with a lot of unexpected backlash from my peers. People whom I thought were my friends spit water on me and called me a Wet Back. They called me a coconut because I was brown on the outside and white on the inside. It sucked.
Not that my answer has anything to do with marshmallows or men, but your question reminded me of that.
The funny thing is that my alma mater is now predominantly hispanic and the La Raza Club is one of the longest running clubs on campus. It's been going for over 20 years.
