Ruben Navarrette Jr. writes in the USA Today:
"O'Rourke hasn't earned the familiarity he allegedly has with Latinos. He should know that life in America's largest racial minority isn't all fiestas.
He hasn’t earned it.
I’ve distilled it down. And that’s basically the refrain I’ve heard from dozens of Latinos who — unlike the news media, run by white liberals who are fascinated by other white liberals — refuse to go loco for Beto."
What's interesting is, why would you care? Not defending Beto, this is bigger than Beto. Why are you angry Beto is confusing Hispanics he's one of them? Because Hispanics vote for Hispanics?
