From Racialicious Managing Editor Arturo Garcia, who also works as an editor at The Raw Story:The first release from a new “comedy super PAC” features actress Rosie Perez blasting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for his joke saying that he’d “have a better shot” at winning the election if he were Latino.“Hispanics represent 17 percent of the population and account for less than 2 percent of all elected and appointed officials. The advantage is obvious,” Perez said in the ad, posted Monday at Actually.org. “Think of all our Hispanic-American presidents: From Jorge Washington to Jorge Bush, uno y dos. And who can forget Presidente Jimmy Smits,” a reference to Smits’ turn as Matt Santos on The West Wing.“Unfortunately for you, Mitt, you were cursed with the hard-knock life of growing up as the son of a wealthy governor and auto executive,” she said, before tearing up. “And when your father paid your way through private school, Harvard, Harvard Law, and bought your first car? I just can’t imagine how difficult that must have been for you.”
