If you are a Democratic Party voter, and you are interested in finding out about the candidates running for your party’s nomination and you say to yourself…
“But, I thought that a Latino was running? Am I wrong?”
No, you are not wrong. You aren’t imagining things.There has been a brownout of coverage of Julian Castro.
While we see every White Democrat and not even Democrats being given oodles of press…there has been a deliberate attempt to stifle Mr. Castro.
The endless fluffing of Mayor Pete, who was the Mayor of a town less than 150,000 people, while Julian Castro was the Mayor of a town of 1.4 million people before going into serving in the Obama Administration.
1.4 million vs less than 150,000
While Julian Castro is out here serving up actual policy positions….
We just get the White Male candidates being fluffed just for existing.
But, we see 👀 👀 you, Julian Castro.
We are you and appreciate all that you bring to the table.
This is being noticed.
