Double standards on display, yet again.

Imagine, if you will, the uproar that would ensue if the keynote speaker at the Republican convention was someone whose mother was a leader in something called the Party of the United Race. You and I know all hell would break loose, right?

So why isn’t anyone saying anything about Julian Castro? Oh yeah, I forgot. He’s Latino, so that makes it okay.

Yeah, I know. Sins of the father and all that. But I read Albatross’ post about Rosie Castro’s derogatory comments about the Alamo and the men who died there, and his closing question about Julian’s disagreement with them:

“Is this a generational difference of attitudes, or is the mayor just saying this because he knows he will be up for re-election several more times and his mother knows she won’t?”

I posed that question to Sabra. Her answer?

“The latter. You can tell by the way he runs this city.”
