I guess the truce did not include allegations of racism that include Latinos.
Via The Politico:
The radio ad aired by one of Obama's labor allies re-injects ethnicity into the Democratic primary contest in sharp terms.
The ad notes the Obama campaign uses the slogan, "Si Se Puede." But the lady who actually coined the phrase along with Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta, talked to reporters on behalf of Clinton:
"It’s pathetic and it's sad and it's unfortunate that they have to stoop so low," said Dolores Huerta, a longtime Hispanic labor leader who supports Clinton. She said she had never met Obama in her years of working on Hispanic causes, and suggested the ad was prompted by his lack of Hispanic support.
"I have yet to find even one worker — a Latino worker — who is supporting Barack Obama," she said.
The political director for the textile and hotel workers' union UNITE-HERE, Tom Snyder, confirmed a portion of the transcript, and defended the decision to run it.
How did opposing culinary union precincts turn into a lack of respect for Latinos?
