Sharron Angle to Latinos: ” You look Asian?”

Latina activist Dolores Huerta.

Latino Bandit Pancho Villa

Siberian politician Sergey Kharyuchi

she (Sharron Angle) told the students confronting her that they themselves do not necessarily look Latino; "Some of you look a little more Asian to me....

I sure hope Sharron Angle wins in Nevada. I also hope she'll pick up a book on anthropology and learn where most of the people called "Latino" in this country originated--and thus vindicate her unwitting truism.

Would it be possible to lump together (for bone-headed cultural and political expediency) two more racially, and culturally distinct ethnic groups than southwest Europeans (bona-fide Latins) and Northwest Asians (the ancestors of most U.S. "Hispanics")? Alas...such is political-correctness (and today's public education.)

Unreal

(Disclaimer: the above "racism" (a.k.a. facts) should not reflect on Babalu editors, only on this intransigent poster whose reputation for "insensitivity" cannot possibly get any worse anyway.

  • YOU INTRANSIGENT RACIST, SEXIST, HOMOPHOBIC, ISLAMOPHOBIC, SELF-HATING "LATEENO"! How dare you point out truth like that! Shame on you!
    :-)

  • You're such a racist, Humberto! Just because you have facts on your side you think you can flaunt them and wave them in peoples faces. Don't you know it's not about facts but about how you feel? If the facts are too harsh, it's your obligation to ignore them! Only a racist would rely on facts to prove a point.

    You should be ashamed of yourself.

  • George, you forgot: "Bambi-Murderer!"

  • You probably torture crayfish and frogs as well you awful truth bearing beast you. From the resident lunatic.

  • Henry Agueros

    And....I am sure that you breed puppies for the Asian market.

  • Rayarena

    Isn't it something how Sharon Angle's innocent and accurate observation has become a point of critical discussion in the mainstream media and major Lateeno organizations around the country, yet, when Oliphant, Katie Couric, Bryant Gumbel, Dan Rather, the late Peter Jennings, Tancredo, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Miami Herald, CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, Hollywood, etc.. have viciously attacked Cuban Americans, you could hear crickets in the background!?!

  • Honey

    I....
    Nah, I can't top any of the above.

  • Rayarena

    Hey, wait! I got one! He's no doubt, hold on to your hats, A CARD-CARRYING REPUBLICAN! Wait, he's also a TEA PARTY MEMBER, he loves Sarah Palin and he believes that we should have SECURE BORDERS!!!

    Oh wait, and he buys clothing made by maquinadoras in Central America!

  • FreedomForCuba

    ROTFLMAO to all of the above comments!

    Dolores Huerta looks more sad than Asian, but there are worse problems, and she has them.
