A Pennsylvania Reader Wonders Why White Hispanics Like Cruz And Rubio Identify With Mexicans

 From: A Reader In State College, PA [Email him]

A couple of questions—why do whites who have Spanish surnames have difficulty behaving as other European-derived Americans in terms of what/who they identify with (i.e. simply other white Americans)?

What have Rubio or Cruz have in common with non-whites with Spanish names? 

The answer, of course, is: nothing at all.  Why, then, this bizarre charade?  I for one am damned sick of it.   But then, all of these federal politicians are becoming more disgusting by the day.
