Is Trump Right

About Judge Gonzalo Curiel?

Can a Judge, at least a former member of the San Diego La Raza Lawyers Association, a group associated with, if not affiliated with, The National Council of La Raza, preside in a fair and unbiased manner over a lawsuit involving the man who wants to build the Great Wall of America?

Would you liberals have been comfortable if the judge presiding over the Ferguson case had been a former member of the Missouri WASP Bar Association?  Or would you have claimed bias? 

Is La Raza a racist organization?

“I hear more and more Mexicans talking about la raza—to build up their pride. Some people don’t look at it as racism, but when you say ‘la raza,’ you are saying an anti-gringo thing, and it won’t stop there. Today it’s anti-gringo, tomorrow it will be anti-Negro."  ~  César Chávez

Seriously, liberals, what would you think of a white organization named "The Race"?

Do I think that Gonzalo Curiel is biased against Donald Trump because he wants to build a wall? I don't know him, but probably not, Trump's complaints about Curiel (and in NY, AG Schneiderman) go back to the beginnings of these cases.  Still, there can be no question of impartiality on the part of the Judge and I think it best that he recuse himself, just as I would think it best if the Judge in the Ferguson trial recuse himself if he was a former member of the Sons of the Confederacy.
