    Grin Arnold Schwarzenegger as A Racial Neuropsychiatrist

    SANTA MONICA, California (AP) -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger apologized Friday for saying during a closed-door meeting that Cubans and Puerto Ricans are naturally feisty and temperamental because of their combination of "black blood" and "Latino blood." He said the tape-recorded comments "made me cringe" when he read them in Friday's Los Angeles Times.

    "Anyone out there that feels offended by those comments, I just want to say I'm sorry, I apologize," Schwarzenegger said. He added that if he heard his children make similar comments, "I would be upset."

    The statements were captured on a six-minute tape made during a March 3 speechwriting session between Schwarzenegger and his advisers. On it, Schwarzenegger and chief of staff Susan Kennedy speak affectionately of state Assemblywoman Bonnie Garcia and speculate about her nationality.

    "I mean Cuban, Puerto-Rican, they are all very hot," the governor says on the recording. "They have the, you know, part of the black blood in them and part of the Latino blood in them that together makes it."

    Garcia, who is Puerto Rican, told the Times the governor's remarks did not bother her. "I love the governor because he is a straight talker just like I am," she said. "Very often I tell him, 'Look, I am a hot-blooded Latina.' I label myself a hot-blooded Latina that is very passionate about the issues, and this is kind of an inside joke that I have with the governor."

    Schwarzenegger spokeswoman Margita Thompson called the governor's remarks "a small part of a long conversation that is taken totally out of context." "The governor respects every member of the Legislature and holds them in the highest regard," Thompson said in a statement. "It is not uncommon for him to have fun and joke with the members while they're working, especially during very tense negotiations."

    Schwarzenegger's communications director, Adam Mendelsohn, said the governor's office would not release the tape publicly because it was a private conversation. The recording is full of frank and comic assessments of fellow Republicans from Schwarzenegger and his staff.

    LOL, so now that the Oui porn mag interviewed Czech Arnold Mach saying he got into a gangbang on a Negress and is known to have a bastard son by a Guatemalan maid, this explains the subtext of his comments and positive reaction by this Puerto Rican as well as any Cuban that might spend time with him. Just curious though, as to what business West Indians have in California. I remember that Predator 2 was set in Los Angeles, but featured Colombians and Jamaicans there, really confusing me, except that it was a continuation of the setting in Mexico for the original Predator.
