Victor Ronquillo, an investigative reporter from Mexico, has taken on the ambitious project of investigating social rights, social injustice and violence among the less fortunate citizens in Mexico. In this book, he looks at racial discrimination and injustices against many of these citizens by military personnel and police. He is astounded by his findings as he interviews those less fortunate citizens. Ronquillo analyzes how they are treated even by their own families, abandoned and forgotten with little help from the Mexican government.
Using his reporting to fight for the rights of marginalized people in Mexico, the author explores social rights, discrimination and social injustice in 12 books he has written on the subject.
