It’s not a question of who that young man looked like. Any young American of any ethnic background should be safe, period. We should all be horrified no matter what the ethnic background,” Gingrich said. “Is the President suggesting that if it had been a white who had been shot that would be ok because it didn’t look like him?
Newt Gingrich, trying to make something where there isn’t something
. How dare
President Obama notice the long history of young black men dying violently? How dare
he notice that Trayvon Martin looked like him, like his own son would look? How dare
this black man note race in any way, shape or form? He must be trying to start the RACE WAR!
This is how the GOP addresses race: they don’t. We can’t discuss race, in GOPland, because race “doesn’t matter” and if we bring it up, especially if we
(that is, us black folk) bring it up, it’s always because we’re trying to start something or worse, assert that racially motivated crimes against us are a problem, or something…
This is the first time, but it’s likely not the last time I say Newton Leroy Gingrich, SHUT THE FUCK UP.
