Is Hillary ticking off Hispanics?

A prominent member of the National Democratic Party and a California superdelegate who heads the voting rights committee of the DNC Hispanic Caucus, Steven Ybarra sent an e-mail out saying that the removal of Hillary's campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle with Maggie Williams, who is black, was disloyal to Hispanics.

Ybarra told The Post yesterday that the loss of Solis Doyle, a child of Mexican immigrants, just weeks before the Texas primary, where 36 percent of the population is Hispanic, was "dumb as a stump."

I find it amazing that to some people like Ybarra everything must be judged on race or ethnicity. Should Hillary keep someone who is not doing a good job just because they are Hispanic? Ridiculous. But this is what you get with identity politics.
