Davis’ comments shock GOP leaders – Special election –

Posted on March 15, 2011


I’m sure GOP leaders were shocked, racism 1.0 is so last year. 2.0 is all the rage nowadays. Jeeze, people, get with the times.

Davis’ comments shock GOP leaders – Special election – The Buffalo News:

“It may not be politically correct and it may not be racially correct, but when you have African American people in Buffalo who do not have jobs and are out of work, why are you bringing people into this country illegally to take jobs?” Ellis asked.

Because black people are the only ones facing unemployment.  obviously economic hardships hit people of color and women the hardest, because even in the best economic times these are the people who are at the bottom of the food chain.  But this reeks of racial superiority: only black and brown people should have to pick food, not the white unemployed individuals.  obviously these people are unfamiliar with http://www.takeourjobs.org/.  one comment from the Mother Jone’s article on this piece makes an excellent point as well:

And on another note is America ready to pay for rising food prices from farmers who have to pay a “fair wage”. I didn’t think so!

Is someone keeping score of the remarks and actions by the GOP? Can we get a scoreboard?
