Exactly, those that equate identity politics with all leftists are either ignorant, or have their own agenda to discredit real progressive issues such as anti war or economic justice.

No you mean social justice warrior ideologues. Not the same as all liberals nor especially actual leftists. There is a difference.
The scary thing is that most people under say 40 think this is what being liberal is all about.
The SJW's are fascists and trying to turn their beliefs into modern "liberalism".

If it's racist to ask someone where they are from, then it's racist to assume they can't spell something because it's not in their native language.
The racism is in making the assumption they even speak that language.
Juan Gonzalez may have deep family roots in Hispanic culture, but he may be a second generation or even third generation Latino who speaks English as his primary language and doesn't really know any Spanish to speak of. So to make the assumption that Juan Gonzalez should interpret for the group because of his looks and name is racist.
What the CNN lady did is working off the same principle of SJW land. It seems a shame that someone who thinks this stuff is absolutely the height of stupidity understands what's going on here.
a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.

Social Justice is like a tank of piranhas, if you don't give them something to chew on they start eating each other. It's only a matter of time.
