The Longoria Affair is a tragic reminder of the racism and discrimination many minorities have endured across the plains of this nation. Felix Longoria a Mexican-American native of Texas volunteered to serve his country and to go to foreign soil to execute his orders. During World War II he left his family, wife and daughter to defend the will of a political and social climate that was not warm to him nor other minorities. While executing his duties he was killed. His remains were sent to his hometown where the town mortician, Mr. Kennedy refused to allow his family to use the chapel, because he was a minority. It was during that time the 1940s that segregation, discrimination, and racism was the norm of the time. Mr. Kennedy who was new to Three Lakes, Texas did not want to break the norm of allowing Hispanic Americans to use the chapel to grieve their love ones. After being told no, his spouse sought out the help of Dr. Garcia who was a Hispanic American medical doctor who also had served in the army who thought he wasn’t intelligent enough to be a medical doctor. He to demonstrated his tenacity in the face of adversity and became a medical doctor. Dr. Garcia of the America GI Forum was also an advocate of rights for the Hispanic American population. After getting knowledge of this atrocity Dr. Garcia notified media and political proponents. He would notify Sen. Lyndon Johnson, to which he took this injustice personally and ultimately saw to it that this great American Hero was laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery. Although, he did the right thing he stayed away from the spotlight knowing that it could impact his political aspirations. This documentary brought to light another track record of disproportion honor to another person who contributed much, but leveraged little, if it wasn’t for someone like Dr. Garcia who would not sit idly by and allow this injustice to continue, who knows where we would be. This story is a reminder of an attitude of discrimination accepted which should be told and remembered…Lest we repeat it.
