So Much For Uniting America

DR. AGAPITO LOPEZ, Hazleton LATINO ASSOC.: We will never convert ourselves into Anglos. We will aculturize. We will learn the language. We will learn the laws. We will follow the laws. But we will never assimilate.

Standard Speaker November 4, 2008 Dr. Agapito Lopez, a commissioner for the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Latino Affairs, said Latinos are strong supporters of Obama.

"Oh definitely, they’ll go toward him," he said. "He’s a more diverse person. (Obama) represents people of color in the country. The Latinos will go for color."

I wonder what would have happened if a caucasion person made that statement.
