SACRAMENTO - When Romualdo Pacheco became California's first Latino to serve as lieutenant governor in 1871 - and later the state's first Latino governor in 1875, taking over for a man elected to the U.S. Senate - little did he know it would take more than a century before another Latino won a statewide office.

Racism isn't just a GOP problem

 (CNN) -- There are two groups of Republicans: Those who pander to nativists by encouraging anti-Latino prejudice and exploiting the fear and anxiety that come from changing demographics, and those who tolerate the first group.
