I think that we can all agree that if there is anyone who knows who does, or doesn’t, have a “Latino heart” it’s white dudes. Am I right?
Gary King is a white man and is the Democratic nominee for Governor of New Mexico. He is challenging incumbent Republican Governor Susana Martinez, who is Hispanic. Recently at a fundraiser King recalled the words of a previous speaker, Hispanic labor activist Dolores Huerta, and told his guests that Martinez “does not have a Latino heart.”
“She said you can’t go out there and just vote for somebody for governor because they have a Latino surname,” King says. “She said you have to look at them and find out if they have a Latino heart. And we know that Susana Martinez does not have a Latino heart.”
I’ll be on the look out for the outrage from Hispanic groups demanding an apology from Gary King.
