Racism is So 20th Century

Smart move, Republicans.  In eight short years, your party has gone from courting the Hispanic vote to losing it for a generation.  Was it worth it?  Was it worth all that racist "immigrant" bashing, all that talk of mass deportations, police round-ups, fences and walls?  This deplorable demonization of the Hispanic community may score points with the xenophobes on the extreme right, but it cost the GOP dearly.

Get it through your heads.  Racism is a tired relic of the 20th Century.  It's the shame of the older generations.  The younger generation - age 35 and under - see the world through very, very different eyes.  This is going to become a very different America.
