Time's New Cover Featuring Photos of the Latinos Who Will Decide The Next Election Includes a Guy Who's Half-White and Half-Chinese

These stupid knotheads can't even do condescending racialist solidarity La Raza messaging right.

In Time's defense, I can see why they thought a half-white, half-Chinese guy who has never called himself Latino (he wasn't even asked by Time, he says) was Latino. He's one of those guys with a deceptive name -- his name is Alezeda Trujillo Rojas, so one can understand why Time thought he was Hispanic.

Wait, I'm just getting word that that's not his name.

His name is actually... Michael Schennum.

No, seriously, that's his name.


Look, just vote for Obama, minorities. Who the hell can keep all of you straight. Obama will give you blah blah blah or whatever it is on your racial agenda.

Via @drewmtips. Drew's making the point on Twitter that Time's catching hell for not observing the "not one drop" policy. That is, any taint of white blood now makes you, well, tainted.

But as far as I can gather, this guy has... no Latin blood, and doesn't claim to be Latin. And is named Michael Shennum.

So what's he doing in Time's La Raza issue?

Time's just stupid, is all.
