When Adrian Florido woke up Sunday morning his phone was blowing up. There was a shooting. In Orlando. A gay nightclub. On Latin Night.
Immediately he knew — most, if not all, of the victims would be Latino.
Florido started tweeting about that fact. The backlash came quickly, replies on twitter that whether the victims were Latino wasn’t relevant. “No need to create divisions where none exist,” @WayneTheCaveman wrote, “or tribalize us.”
