Bad marketing can undercut a whole campaign’s worth of Etch-a-Sketching. Harpers: “A Republican National Committee website designed to court Latino voters displayed a banner featuring stock photography of Asian children.” USNews:
We’re guessing the RNC may have taken inspiration from Sharron Angle, who in 2010 told Hispanic children they looked Asian.
When the RNC launched the site in October, the committee described it as a place where the “Republican National Committee can connect with Hispanic voters, and Hispanic voters can hear Hispanic Republican leaders.” …
Update, 4:30 p.m.:
The photo of Asian children has been taken down and replaced with a banner that reads “Hispanic Latino Strategic Partnerships.”
Oh well, at least Scott Brown’s party has “Juan Crow” and disenfranchisement of African-American and Latino U.S. citizens to fall back on (picking up the torch from the southern Democratic Party of segregation in the 20th century, and the Dixiecrats.)
