REPUBLICAN FOR COUNTY JUDGE CARLOS CASCOS, AND REPUBLICAN PARTY CHAIR MORGAN GRAHAM - WHAT SAY YOU?

When Cesar de Leon as a Democrat used a racial slur against two ADA's of African descent the BV demanded local and statewide Democrat denounce him.

The Republicans must do the same as to Tad Hasse, or face the voters as a supporter of Tad Hasse's comments.

It is inconceivable to me that someone born and raised in the U.S. could use the word exterminating, even in jest, in regards to an entire class of people.

My life journey has not been the same as others.  I have been blessed to know and understand what it means to be a victim of discrimination.  I saw it first hand in NY and in fact all over the U.S.  This blessing gave me a greater insight into the human condition and how social constructs diminish the human condition.

I cannot and will not judge people whose life is not seen through my eyes. But I will speak to bigotry and hatred.  Life will be their judge, not me.  Every one's experience is different and every one's brain is wired differently.  But you cannot erase the tears in my mother's eyes in June of 76' when I walked across the stage at graduation after the racist principal refused to say I was going to UTEP on a full scholarship.  He said it for every other graduate.  We were told by my guidance counselor from day one, as a Latino I was to learn a trade and not prepare for the university.

It took my cousin's husband whose parents were Russian Jews to force the Realtor and owner of the home to sell our house to mom.  His threat was pretty solid when they threatened to cancel the contract very clearly stating they could not sell the house to a Latina.

We moved in only to face a written petition for the Township to force us to move.  At age 43, as a widow,  with 7 kids, and English as a second language, she went to Hofstra university to become a social worker.  She did not use us an an excuse to not stand on her own two feet.  Even after she graduated she was not good enough for the community.

I am open minded enough to understand how some people in my family use mom's journey as evidence no matter how bad the bigotry is you can still get out their and get educated, as a widow with 7 kids, and move forward in a good job.  Others see her journey as a sacred oath on our part to stand against bigotry regardless of whether the victim is trying to lift themselves up.  

BIGOTRY BASED ON IDENTITY

Until you have a judge look the other way when an attorney spits on you and says "fucking faggot," you cannot begin to understand just how bad the judiciary can be and the reality of bigotry.  Because of this it saddens me how many judges and other elected officials hide in the closet.  I do not know why because Brownsville is so much more embracing than NY and other parts of Texas.  In McAllen the judge and bailiff in front of maybe 20 witnesses turned a blind eye to an attorney swinging at me calling me a "fucking faggot."

People like Tad Hasse and Roman Perez know nothing about bigotry and how is can limit people. They are many things, but Christians is not one of them.  But I was raised by a father, in part, but we learned his legacy, who went to jail over and over again with Jews when FDR had union organizers rounded up as communists.  My father never gave in and held his ground until the day he died.  I was raised by a mother who looked racism in the face and said no, "I Matter,"  and moved forward in the face of so many obstacles.

SO TO CARLOS CASCOS AND MORGAN GRAHAM WILL YOU DISTANT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY FROM TAD HASSE OR REMAIN SILENT AND THEREBY SEND THE MESSAGE THIS IS ACCEPTABLE LANGUAGE


From Hasse according to Vince Leibowitz, of the Colorado County Citizen: "Hasse began what can most accurately be described as a long tirade by asking, “How long has it been since you all exterminated all of the Democrats in Colorado County,”

TOMORROW, I PROMISE BACK TO MIKE HERNANDEZ

I have not slept in days.  Buster keeps me up until 3-4 a.m and then wakes me at 7 a.m. to do her business eat and then sleep until 7 p.m.  I will be back at the veterinarian next week.  It is time.  She is suffering so much.  My veterinarian is not an advocate of putting down dogs.

I would go to another vet if necessary. I have had all of my dogs put down. All because they were suffering and could not get better.

Bigotry and/or racism is unacceptable. Period. Words matter. If in fact Tad used a word such as "exterminate" in the context as has been published, a public apology is warranted. I do not condon, support or accept any words, phrases or terms that are discriminatory against anyone.
