One California policy advocate for the American Civil Liberties Union did not mince words during a city council meeting in Rialto last week, telling a group of older white people that they had only “five years left” and that minorities are “the future.”
Interestingly, as Luis Nolasco, a community engagement and policy advocate for the ACLU of Southern California, spoke in support of sanctuary cities, he said he doesn’t want to “see an America that is hateful” moments after he mocked the meeting’s white attendees for their age.
“This is my town,” the 26-year-old said, adding, “The reality is that black and Latinos are the majority of the city, and that is representative of the city, and that’s going to continue to be the case for future generations.”
According to 2010 census data, Rialto is 67.6 percent Hispanic.
“It’s kind of mean for me to say it, but these people have probably like five years left,” Nolasco said, gesturing to the group of white people in the meeting.
