The way you know you're not a white supremacist is how you always have to explain why you're not actually a white supremacist.
Same thing happens to me. Everywhere I go people are like, why are you wearing that rabbit suit? Sir, this is a nice dining establishment, you can't wear that rabbit suit in here. Mommy I'm scared of the man in the rabbit suit!
But I'm not wearing a damnn rabbit suit. I'm wearing a perfectly normal suit that happens to include ears and big fuzzy feet and a cotton tail. It's not my fault if people misinterpret it.
He doesn't need to prove it, we already know he's a white supremacist. It's nice of him to go out of his way and demonstrate it for anyone who doesn't know already though, most white supremacists wouldn't be willing to go through the effort of proving their bigotry to more people
"I mean look, y'all, is it racist to think black people should pay reverse reparations to say thank you for getting their grandparents out of Africa? It is? Oh well go figure, Suzy Snowflake trying to legislate people's minds!"
There. Just saved you all from having to watch it.
And now Republican Sen. Tim Scott's WaPo op-ed is even more hilariously timed. It's' entitled: "Why are Republicans accused of racism? Because we’re silent on things like this."
Three months ago, a white supremacist killed two black people in a parking lot in Kentucky. We are only 18 months from Charlottesville, where white nationalists killed a white woman with a car and severely beat multiple black people. Almost four years ago, a white supremacist murdered nine African Americans in a church in Charleston, S.C. In 1998, white supremacists dragged James Byrd Jr., behind a pickup truck through Jasper, Tex., decapitating him in the process.
King’s comments are not conservative views but separate views that should be ridiculed at every turn possible. Conservative principles mean equal opportunity for all to succeed, regardless of what you look like or where you are from. It is maddening to see so many folks who believe this and have only good intentions in their hearts tarnished by these radical perspectives.
The piece is full of whataboutism, but it's actually sad (and not all unsurprising) that one of the few black Republicans in Congress is speaking out, and there's apparently no white Republicans agreeing with him and also denouncing Steve King. (Caveat: There may be; I just haven't seen it.)
