Brokaw’s Hispanic assimilation comment could have merit


Former NBC Nightly News Anchor Tom Brokaw had to apologize for the Hispanic assimilation comment he made on NBC’s Sunday morning show “Meet the Press.”

“I also happen to believe that the Hispanics should work harder at assimilation…That’s one of the things I’ve been saying for a long time. You know, they ought not to be just codified in their communities but make sure that all their kids are learning to speak English, and that they feel comfortable in the communities. And that’s going to take outreach on both sides, frankly.”-Tom Brokaw

Brokaw not only apologized, but offered several tweets to qualify the apologize.
