Sharon Angle tells Latino teens some of them look Asian

I don't so much care that this may be her reaction-- difficulty with distinguishing the nuances of appearance in those outside one's own group is a difficulty for many people. To me, the bigger problem is her not realizing these are things generally better not spoken of aloud-- there's just not any reason to draw attention  to it, especially if the speaker's guiding ethos is one that opposes identify politics and pushes the idea of us being, or that we should be, a melting pot.
