That's not a racist take at all, Phyllis Schlafly. pic.twitter.com/US476S1Do3— Leon Wolf (@LeonHWolf) February 5, 2016
Yes the ONLY WAY someone can be racist is if they use the exact words "I hate Hispanics"— Leon Wolf (@LeonHWolf) February 6, 2016
I remember having to deal with this in 2010—a guy named Donny Deutsch said that Rubio was a "coconut"—a slang term for someone who is "brown on the outside, and white on the inside". In Marco Rubio, “Coconut” Or “Great White Hope”? I pointed out that Rubio isn't brown on the outside—I. E. he's not a Mexican-American of partially Aztec descent, he's a Cuban of Spanish descent. Spain is a country in Europe full of white people.
Ted Cruz's Cuban father is similarly pale, and his father came from the Canary Islands, also 100 percent white. (Cruz's mother was an Irish-American from Wilmington, Delaware—which is why Cruz looks kind of like Pat Buchanan.)
We've done a lot of articles pointing this out:
In defense of Phyllis Schlafly, there's about 0% she's writing the columns posted in her name these days.— Leon Wolf (@LeonHWolf) February 6, 2016

Well, she may be old, but she's not the one who thinks Rubio is one of the "brown people" from South of the Border.
