Several days ago, James Clyburn, the #3 ranking Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives, accused U.S. Senator Tim Scott of not voting “according to the color of his skin.” No doubt, that comment inspired a Bloomberg News reporter to claim that Republicans “lowered the bar” for black people by supporting Senator Scott.
Blatant racism and race baiting needs to end in American politics! I am tired of Democrats suggesting that supporting individual liberty and free market capitalism is racist. Suggesting that black conservatives are “Uncle Toms” is racist! Crying wolf at opposition to President Obama’s policies minimizes the significance of racism.
If we are going to ban racist basketball owners from the public square, why not add racist politicians to the list? After all, the votes that Representative Clyburn takes have a direct impact on our lives.
