Border Mic – Episode 3 – I Was Too Mexican for Aceitunas in El Paso



Welcome to episode three of the Border Mic. In this episode I share with you the story of when a bar in El Paso, Texas – Aceitunas, would not let me enter with my friends because I was too Mexican. I wasn’t discriminated against because of my brown skin, after all El Paso is about 80% Hispanic.

No, I was discriminated against simply for being too Mexican.

Here’s my story.
