Can you feel the fire and passion at the DNC? There is no question in my mind (as a woman) that Julian Castro’s speech was from the heart! In fact, his speech gave me chills (and hey….I’m not that easy to impress in the political arena).
One could especially sense the Tejano/Chicano/Latino pride when Julian Castro gave his speech at the DNC with a strong heartfelt message.
Castro was the first Latino keynote speaker to give this historic speech at the DNC, and the Democratic Party was wise to pick a speaker of Mexican descent.
Ladies and Gentlemen:
You are now witnessing how the Republican Party will lose generations of Latin support for at least 20-30 years (particularly from the Mexican-American community).
Julian Castro gets two thumbs up from me, and for those of you who are confused ….
…. Make no mistake … Latinas and Latinos DO WANT TO BE PANDERED AND CATERED TO.
Our political love doesn’t come cheap anymore.
So why does Mexican-American Julian Castro trump Cuban-American Sen. Marco Rubio?
It’s a numbers game.
Almost 70% of the entire Hispanic Population pie consists of those who are of Mexican descent while Cubans consist of only 3% of the Hispanic population pie.
Get the picture?
Cuban Republicans like Sen. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz are for Cuban amnesty while damning the Mexican, Irish, Indian immigrants. In other words, the immigration issue doesn’t hurt them as much as it does us because they receive amnesty. Cuban Republicans have squandered their Latino street credibility and in my view it is time for the dog to wag the tail instead of the other way around. We will not allow the GOP to use tokens like Rubio to speak on behalf of the Mexican-American voter. No way in hell we will allow that to happen without a fight!
Mexican-American voters is the gold mine due to our sheer numbers and voting strength that will be off the hook as years go on. Hallelujah to that!
