Bernalillo County (Albuquerque) Republican Party Chairman Remarks are so outrageous

The chairman, Fernando C de Baca, made the following comments to the BBC on Friday. 

“The truth is that Hispanics came here as conquerors,” he said. “African-Americans came here as slaves.

“Hispanics consider themselves above blacks. They won’t vote for a black president.”

Of course these statements have caused a great deal of controversy here in NM.  Many Republicans have publicly called for Mr. C de Baca’s resignation but I just read before noon that he was retained as chairman. 

I’ve lived here almost 13 years and never have I heard or been subjected to anything remotely like this here.  In fact, when I first moved here, Hispanics were the only ones who welcomed me.  Half the whites wouldn’t speak to me and same with the blacks.  I’ve heard a lot of ugly racist things over the years, but something about this comment really punched me in the gut.  It is breath-taking in its hurtfulness.
