In this article, stories of Latina/o students in a pre-collegiate program highlight incidents of the racial microaggressions that create hostile educational environments for non-White students. These counterstories document the persistence of racism and other forms of marginalization in society and in the campus environment. The prejudice and discrimination that Latina/o students encounter contradicts the premises of color-blindness and meritocracy in the new racial ideology. The authors use the conceptual frameworks of Critical Race Theory and Latina/o Critical Race Theory to examine the intersecting structural systems of oppression and privilege that shape the experience of Latina/o students at predominately white institutions. It is crucial that these voices from the margins inform the development of college programs to support the success of Latina/o and other minority students.
