Hispanic man denied burial at 'whites only' cemetery in Texas

- A cemetery in a small Texas town has denied a woman's request to bury her husband there simply because he is Hispanic.

In fact, the cemetery in Normanna, Texas says its policy does not allow any Hispanic or black people to be buried there.

"I love my husband with all my heart," Donna Barrera said of her deceased husband Pedro to Kiiitv 3 in South Texas. "That was 44 years with him and then all of a sudden this comes out of the woodwork."

Donna asked the owner of the ironically Latino named San Domingo Cemetery if she could bury her husband's ashes there and the owner, rather emphatically, said no.
