I say this as someone with a Hispanic son-in-law and daughter-in-law, both of whom are wonderful people from families that are at least as affluent as my own. The notion that every person of Hispanic ancestry is a victim of racist oppression — mired in poverty, “living in the shadows” as “undocumented,” etc. — is contradicted by my own direct observations.

It’s worth mentioning that Guerrero wrote a 2020 book, Hatemonger: Stephen Miller, Donald Trump, And The White Nationalist Agenda, which basically smears everyone who voted for Trump as a neo-Nazi. As you might imagine, the replies to her post about being laid off from her newspaper job were iluminado:

We don’t hate her for being Latina. We hate her for being a journalist. Hating journalists is a tradition that can unite all Americans.
