Angle, running against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, shocked a group of Hispanic high school students last week when she said “some of you look a little more Asian to me.”
Angle’s off-fhe-cuff remark is the latest “oh my God” comment from the tea party candidate.
“You know, I don’t know that all of you are Latino,” Angle told the students. “Some of you look a little more Asian to me.”
Her comments brought gasps from the students, many of them upset at Angle’s TV commercials that use images of dark skinned men with an anti-immigrant message.
Not so, Angle claimed. The students, she said, were simply “misinterpreting” the ads.
“I’m not sure that those are Latinos in the commercials,” she claimed.
