First Mel Gibson, then George Allen . . .

. . . and now, Arnold Schwarzenneger:

"She maybe is Puerto Rican or the same thing as Cuban," the governor said. "I mean, they are all very hot. They have the, you know, part of the black blood in them and part of the Latino blood in them that together makes it."

On tape, no less.

I hope I am not lumped with Arnold, but I have always thought that people with mixed racial bloodlines were the prettiest people on the planet. So, I think he may have a point. He should have known better to make the comment as a public figure, but I strongly disagree putting him with Mel and George "the hypocrite" Allen for that comment. Mel & Allen were wrong in saying it as well as it being stupid. I think Arnold's comment is actually kind of funny - just was not smart to tape himself. A bigoted comment? I do not think so here . . . Arnold has said and done some dumb things, but I think this one is harmless.

I don't think it's as offensive as Mel and George -- but it's still pretty offensive to make broad, sweeping statements about people because of their ethnicities.

I'm just surprised that he could put so many words together without asking for a script.
