The "dirty little secret"

The L.A. Times reports…..”Reporting from Washington — Thomas Perez is Maryland’s highest-ranking Latino, but his selection as the nation’s leading civil rights enforcer has provoked sharp criticism from some Latino civil rights advocates.

The criticism isn’t directed at Perez, the state’s secretary of labor and a first-generation Dominican American, or his qualifications.

Instead, it revolves around a belief that the administration passed over another Latino attorney for the position as head of the Justice Department’s civil rights division, possibly out of a desire to avoid a fight over immigration.

A statement by the National Council of La Raza, which calls itself the nation’s largest Latino civil rights organization, expressed “profound disappointment” that Thomas Saenz, an advisor to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, wasn’t chosen for job.

“This action may lead some to question whether the White House is ready to fulfill its promise on immigration reform,” said Janet Murguia, the group’s president. Through a spokeswoman, she refused a request for further comment.

Saenz was reported last month to be the leading contender for the position. A close associate, Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina, was quoted late last week as saying that he had been offered the appointment and accepted it.”
NOW FOR “THE DIRTY LITTLE SECRET”—The Obama appointment was a Dominican/American. The “National Council of La Raza”—aka the Mexican KKK,(La Raza means “The Race” in case you didn’t know) the only acceptiable racist organization in the USA, Is “pissed off” that another Mexican wasn’t appointed. Obama used this racist organization to help his election bid but, its good to see he isn’t caving in to everything they want. Are they being “hoisted on their on petard”?
