News A self-professed “Hot Blooded Latina”
Gov. Ahnold Schwarzenegger is apologizing again for inappropriate behavior (see: “Close the border” with Mexico, women groping), this time for attributing an assemblywoman’s attitude to her black and Latino blood.
Apparently, the comments were made during a closed, tape-recorded speech writing meeting while the Gov’nator was speaking affectionately about Assemblywoman Bonnie Garcia.
From the NYT:
”I mean Cuban, Puerto-Rican, they are all very hot,” the governor says on the recording. ”They have the, you know, part of the black blood in them and part of the Latino blood in them that together makes it.”
And then! Ms. Garcia herself appeared at a press conference to say she took no offense at the comment. Indeed, she often times refers to herself as a “hot-blooded Latina.”
