RNC Chair Candidate Chip Saltsman Records "The Star Spanglish Banner"

Chip Saltsman is currently a candidate in the running to become the next chairman of the Republican National Committee. We were already pretty miffed at him for recording that "Barack the Magic Negro" song and distributing it on a CD to all of his cohorts for Christmas. But wait! It gets worse. Apparently on the very same CD of offensive tunes, he also recorded a little diddy called "The Star Spanglish Banner" in which he derides Latino immigrants.

Hmm, being that Latinos are the fastest growing minority group in the country, and that we ovewhlemingly voted for President Obama, you'd think Mr. Saltsman might want to be wooing us instead of making fun of us. But no, apparently the RNC thinks that having 2 African American candidates in the running for chairman is enough to keep all the minorities in the land satisfied. Take a listen for yourself to "The Star Spanglish Banner":

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
