I think some people don't have the right idea. I can't speak for Hispanics, but I don't think they all suddenly will become pro torture just because someone brown says it is good, just as blacks don't seem to just all the sudden think Bush is the second coming because he's got some black faces there. What white folks don't get is that it's not really about black faces, it's about what's actually good for black people and for the world at large. Yea, a black guy could say that we need to nuke the middle east, but we are smart enough to know he's crazy as a loon. It's only white folks that are fooled by this simplistic rendering of racial politics, and they can snap out of it by thinking about it a little bit.
