I have added in the Gathering storm section a U.S. Senate speech of John Randolph of Roanoke in which his racial prejudice against Latin Americans is made abundantly evident. He defends slavery and hierarchy. He seems to be insufferably pretentious.
He is a hero to the neo-Confederates and his views a part of the core ideas of the neo-Confederate movement.
In remembrance of this speech, I suggest reading the book “Cinco de Mayo: An American Tradition,” by Dr. Hayes-Bautista of UCLA. He explains the origins of the holiday as an anti-Confederate and anti-French intervention rally.
