Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz's blog
During this Presidential campaign cycle, candidates from the Democratic and Republican Parties seem to be ignoring the Hispanic community and the Hispanic vote. With some very exciting primaries in place, why does it appear that the Hispanics are being ignored? Since Barack Obama entered the democratic primary, a lot of energy from both parties has gone to reaching out to the Black vote – which is good because it shows that the Black vote can no longer be taken for granted. What about us?
It’s time for the Hispanic leadership to follow the example set by Reverend Al Sharpton which demands for any candidate to attend Rev. Al Sharpton’s events if they expect any support from the Black community. No serious candidate excuses him or herself from speaking before his audiences, and no Hispanic leader should allow candidates to refuse to attend events in the Hispanic community and expect to be taken seriously.
Tonight, Wednesday, April 18th at 7:30PM on Bronx Channel 67, there will be a special episode of "Lo que debe saber" where Senator Reverend Ruben Diaz (D-Bronx) will discuss with psychiatrists the effects that the nation is facing because we are removing GOD or the fear of God from our children's lives.
