Resistir un estereotipo por Romney

Resistir un estereotipo por Romney
Spanish

El autor amerindio Sherman Alexie, "El indio más fuerte del mundo", hizo una vez este sabio comentario: "No hagan honor a sus estereotipos". 

Nadie podría acusar a Manuel Guerra Casas de caer en eso. Durante años ha luchado contra leyes perjudiciales para los inmigrantes, como la denominada "papeles, por favor" en Arizona, y a favor de la aprobación de la Ley DREAM. Casas, tal como dice el famoso eslogan, es "indocumentado [y se muestra] impávido". Pero más que nada, no apoya al presidente Obama —de hecho, es un defensor activo y elocuente de Mitt Romney.
