Julian Castro: ‘I Applaud’ News Outlets for Calling Trump ‘Racist’
[BREITBART] Presidential candidate Julian Castro (D) on Thursday praised news organizations for calling Trump a "racist," saying he believes news outlets must "call a spade a spade."
"I am Cornhoolio!"
"I applaud news organizations that have recognized the need to call a spade and spade and use the word racist," Castro told BuzzFeed. "I believe he is."

Castro, the former San Antonio mayor who was former President Barack Obama
My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you'll join with me as we try to change it...
’s Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary, also said "in some ways, journalism in the Trump era is more challenging than ever" and urged establishment outlets "to stay focused on newsworthiness and not to let a fascination with oddity, or simple timeliness, overtake news judgement about what’s important for readers."

"The fact that the president just went back on his word to do universal background checks should be front page and these other moves by Trump are likely designed to distract from that," he continued.

#6 Reminds one of the NY Times staffer's comment in that internal staff-wide NYT meeting at which the editor Dean Basquet announced that the Times would be pivoting ("the story changed") from Russiagate to All-Racism-All-The-Time:
"I just feel like racism is everything."
