They are talking to LULAC-- to the League of United Latin American Citizens at its annual convention in Washington, D.C.

Second of three July appearences before big Hispanic groups.

I only wish Obama would be challenged to explain his Dorothey Tillman endorsement AFTER her racist tirade on the City Council when she said, "The Voting Rights Act pertains ONLY to African-Americans, not them Mexicans."

YOU NEED TO THINK PRESIDENTIAL NOT LOCAL!
STOP BRINGING UP THINGS ABOUT A FORMER ALDERMAN!
ELEVATE YOUR MIND AND THE REST OF YOU WILL FOLLOW!
THINK POSITIVE THOUGHTS AND YOU WILL HAVE A MORE BLESSED DAY!
FINALLY, VOTE FOR BARACK OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!

PHIL: Come on, if as an example, John McCain endorsed a Don Imus AFTER he made his racist comment, YOU would be the first person to criticize...So please, no double-standard.......Latin-Americans have been in America since the late 1500's (southwest states and California). They have paid taxes like you and I, died for our freedoms, and contributed culturally. They are just as good and YOU and I. So again, don't be a hypocrite.
