The "Hispanics only" debates; What happened?
Well, what happened to the first ever, historic, "Hispanic only" debates?
Where are all the polls on the viewers reaction? Where is all the Hispanic rah rah? Where are the demands for more debates? Where is all the talk about how great it was to have seen the first ever history making Spanish language debates?
Where are the droves of East Texans putting Hispanic for governor signs in their yards? Where are all the monies cascading into the Morales and Sanchez campaigns?
Where is all that pride in being a Texan because of the "Hispanic only" debates?
Where are the big galas to celebrate our rebirth as "Mexico del Norte"?
Where is the demand for Spanish language text books? Where is the increased viewers at Univision and Telemundo?
Where are the stories about men wearing sombreros? Where are the record breaking sales of Hispanic music?
Where are the stories about all the Blacks and Whites trying to find some link to a Hispanic heritage?
Where are all the stories about the millions made by the stations carrying the debates?
What? Nothing? No reaction? No rah rah?
Apathy you say? Boring you say? A nonevent? Really?
I guess any Hispanic won't do!
Oh well. I guess someone did not fully understand that this is America. And America is a melting pot of all the nations of the world. America is about inclusiveness. The Hispanic debates were about exclusiveness. Well that is why a Hispanic peace will never manifest WorldPeace; a Christian peace will never manifest WorldPeace; an American peace will never manifest WorldPeace; a masculine peace will never manifest WorldPeace.
America is about unity in diversity, not Hispanics (or any other group) Rule.
The fatal flaw of the "Hispanic only" debates was that they were UNAMERICAN, stupid!
I have spent the last 14 years of my life talking about inclusiveness. I changed my name to WorldPeace as a token of my commitment. I am against the exclusiveness of Sanchez and Morales. I am committed to America and equality and justice for all. They are dedicated to something else.
I am about first class citizenship for everyone. They are about Hispanics first. I am about color blindness. They are about pride in color. They are Republicans. I am a Democrat.
In the end, WorldPeace!
The next governor of Texas
No more corruption. No more Monicas.
God Bless Texas
