Newt Gingrich is a very smart man who understands the game of politics. He is firing up the base when he says, “We should replace bilingual education with immersion in English so people learn the common language of the country and they learn the language of prosperity, not the language of living in a ghetto.” Let’s just play the race card. That’s the way to the White House. Hell, George played divide and conquer politics. So, why shouldn’t Newt?
Unfortunately, the facts seem to slap Newt in the face. There are more Whites living under the poverty line (16.2 million) compared to Blacks (9.2 million). The number of Hispanics living below the poverty line (9.3 million).
