Sharron Angle Tells Hispanic Students They Look 'A Little More Asian' (VIDEO)

LAS VEGAS — Nevada U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle is seen in a new video making an unusual comment about race, telling a group of Hispanic students that some of them look "a little more Asian."

In a meeting with Hispanic students Friday, Angle defended campaign ads that lean on images of dark-skinned men to blast rival Harry Reid's record on illegal immigration. She claims she didn't know the people in the TV spots were Hispanic.

A new video of the meeting released by the Las Vegas Sun on Monday shows the Republican candidate arguing that it is difficult to pinpoint someone's race.

She tells the Hispanic students that some of the students look "a little more Asian" and says she herself has been called Nevada's first Asian legislator. Angle is white.
