National Review‘s Wise Latina Caricature Inexplicably Asian

Views

As part of a cover package called “The Wise Latina,” the folks over at the conservative National Review–apparently flummoxed by the very idea of a “wise Latina”–have caricaturized the Puerto Rican-descended Sonia Sotomayor as an Asian Buddhist.

Good times.

Also featured on the cover in the current issue: “Jonah Goldberg On His Critics.” That better be a long article.
