WASHINGTON - After her earlier release of an advertisement deemed the most racist of the season by political experts, a new Sharron Angle ad prompted Deepak Bhargava, executive director of the Campaign for Community Change, to release the following statement:
“This is an offensive and clearly racist tactic. The advertisement falsely and outrageously depicts Latinos and immigrants as members of criminal gangs, threatening white families and white children. It contains divisive images and language designed to pit whites against people of color.
“America should resoundingly reject such hate mongering. This action has no place in politics or in this country. We demand Sharron Angle immediately apologize to all Latinos, every immigrant in America and Harry Reid for her deceitful and blatantly racist advertisement."
