Back in 1995, then-Congressman Bill Richardson said this:
"We have to band together and that means Latinos in Florida, Cuban-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Puerto Ricans, South Americans - we have to network better - we have to be more politically minded - we have to put aside party and think of ourselves as Latinos, as Hispanics, more than we have in the past."
I strongly urge everyone to go to his campaign appearances and read him that quote, then ask him the following:
If a white politician had said something similar, wouldn't they be branded an ethnic nationalist and driven out of public life? Could you explain why you think you should be any different?
