Bebe gets a hand from DickThis 1970 Life Magazine cover story "Bebe Rebozo: President Nixon's best friend" demonstrates the hatred and discrimination suffered by any and all Hispanics back in the bad old days before the Nixon Administration created the Hispanic category of affirmative action beneficiaries.We must pass the Schumer-Rubio bill and then elect Marco Rubio...
