Political experts across the country are trying to puzzle their way through the results of this year's Democratic Primary elections and are asking: why has the Hispanic vote been such a mystery?
Men are voting for Obama, black or white. Women are jumping on the Hillary bandwagon. But Browns, not ups, but the US Hispanic population, have surprised observers by their rejection and, si', even their denunciation of fellow person of color, Barack Obama.
Is it the Hispanic affinity for the mother figure from Nuestra Dama de Guadalupe to the Goddesses of the Americas? Is it possibly the competition for jobs among minorities or some other explanation for this phenomenon?
UC-South Central Political Science Professor Hijole Mano believes that the mystery can be explained by the competing gang cultures of the City of the Angels: "We got Crips and we got Bloods and plenty of gangs in between. But ain't no Crip going to represent no Blood and the Bloods don't be showin fo the Crips. Obama be a blood no bout a doubt it and tho she be whiter than white, Hills be our Cripsy gangsta girl fo now!"
