Republican Minority Candidates Denied

For John, BLUFI think the Democrats are concerned.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

I may have previously blogged about this News Busters item by Reporter Ken Shepherd, "Chris Matthews Not Sure If Cruz, Rubio Really Hispanic; They're 'Cuban Nationals' Though", but if I did it is worth repeating.

I don't actually care that they are Hispanic, but let us not be denying that fact because their families came from Cuba.  That just shows a total lack of understanding about that it means to be Hispanic.  It would be like saying folks from Brazil, the Azores or Portugal were Hispanic, when they are actually Lusitanians.  If we are going to use these ethnic categories we should understand them.  I wonder if Mr Matthews will soon deny that Dr Ben Carson is Black or that Ms Carly Fiorina is a female?

On the other hand, lets face it, Mr Chris Matthews is an Englisher.
