The political assumptions were Hispanics find it difficult to be elected because not enough Hispanics vote, the majority of white people would never vote for a Hispanic and certain Hispanics prefer to be led by white people.
Some of this may be true, but when you have a large Hispanic population, one also has to consider that maybe the elections have been fixed and it explains why Hispanics are losing by less then 250 votes.
Not training the precinct workers and selecting them right before the election created confusion among Hispanics. Because of this along with other irregularities, over 3,500 potential votes weren't registered. Those who are winning should be losing, and those who are losing should be winning. Most of these votes would have gone to Hispanics.
It takes a lot of bravery for a Hispanic to run for election. Take the example of Ruben Garcia. Now that the election is over, the white county supervisors are starting to harass him. How is Carter treating Mendoza?
