Associated Press reports that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger apologized Friday for saying during a closed-door meeting that Cubans and Puerto Ricans are naturally feisty and temperamental because of their combination of “black blood” and “Latino blood.” He said the tape-recorded comments “made me cringe” when he read them in Friday’s Los Angeles Times.
So, I don’t get it. What the hell’s wrong with being feisty and temperamental? And, as far as the mix of Latino and “Black” blood – what’s wrong with that? They have way better sun tans and seem far more pure at heart. My feisty and temperamental nature comes from being an Aries Brit/Irish mix and I now make quarterly visits to the skin doctor to remove lesions which derive from too much sun, trying to look Black/Latino.
I’m not sure Schwarzenegger knows which end is up.
