    Or that most of what has to be legislated is non racial?

    If we are all supposed to be equal, why would the racial percentage of representatives matter as long as the best people for the job are in there?

    It might not, but if you define “best people for the job” as those who aren’t minorities, you’re up a rather big and smelly creek.

    If Hispanics aren’t running, whose fault is that? If they are but aren’t getting elected, again, whose fault is that? Dont’t vote for the race, vote for the person.

    Or if you wish, vote for race, it should be a free country. But if you vote race, you are the one who may be called racist, aren’t you?

    BTW, I am not american, so all of it is just my own humble opinion.

    I think the point isn’t that people aren’t electing them but rather that Hispanics aren’t in politics. As with all minority groups, there’s a point where they realize that they and their interests are invisible to those in power until they become politically active. I hear this as a call from Hispanics to Hispanics to wake up and become active.

    Or that the districts have been gerrymandered so Hispanics can’t win their districts? I live in such a gerrymandered Congressional district. My Congressman’s closest office is 80 miles from where I live, and in a different area code. I live in Pennsylvania, where we have 18 Congressmen.

    The 15th District is so set up that one end is just south of Harrisburg, and covers the famous Three Mile Island nuclear power plant, which sits in the middle of the Susquehanna River, and extends all the way to the Delaware River south of Easton, a total of 105 miles from west to east. It’s no more than 20 miles from north to south.

    Hispanics are just people like everyone else the (state legislature) should represent them as well as everyone else equally like they do every other human being in the state,. i don’t think it really maters what race the legislature is made up of, they were voted in by the people to represent the people. race is irrelevant.

    Hector D. Cantu and Carlos Castellanos should relax and stop worrying about the invented concept of race and just enjoy being human

    The Hispanic population is going to be way more than 35% soon. Already is in some places.

    @Dave

    Couldn’t agree more with your comment.

    The person who represents a district is supposed to represent all in his/her district regardless or race, ethnicity, age or gender. If they don’t, their constituents should hold them accountable.
    .

    Women are just over 50 percent of the population but only about 20 percent of Congress. I doubt that Cantu and Castellanos even noticed that.

    Or maybe it means that Hispanics are voting for the best canidate regardless of what race they are. Plus whether people want to admit it, older Hispanics are strong Catholics and somewhat conservitive. Most Hispanic canidates in California are younger liberals who wouldn’t automaticly get their vote. This is why prop 8 passed in California. Not enough Republicans to pass it so many Blacks and Hispanics voted for it at the urging of obama who came out during the prop 8 campaign and said “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman”. He didn’t change his mind until later when he needed the gay vote. Also not all Republican, such as myself voted for prop 8 so it did get support from democrats.

    Who would have guessed that the 5th Vice President of the United States started doing something so devious that it is still widely done today?

    Could it be that 25 percent of the population is here illegally and can’t vote or perhaps don’t vote?
