Manchester, NH--Today, Alejandro Urrutia, President of Latinos Unidos of New Hampshire and a leader among New Hampshire’s latino community, released the following statement responding to a deeply offensive and racist video from former GOP state representative and Scott Brown supporter Greg Salts.
“This video is offensive, racist and bigoted. It’s an insult to members of the Latino community here in New Hampshire and Hispanic Americans everywhere. There's no excuse for anyone to stay silent when it comes to this kind of rhetoric and Scott Brown should denounce it immediately.”
Supporters of Scott Brown's campaign have a history of making racist, sexist and misogynistic comments. Last weekend, Scott Brown sipped beers as his supporters shouted "F**k Jeanne Shaheen!" and other offensive language that the New Hampshire Democratic Party will not repeat here. This summer, an individual Scott Brown touted in a press release as a supporter of his campaign sent a racist and misogynistic letter to the New Hampshire Democratic Party.
