At ‘Minority Outreach’ Panel, CPAC Participant Defends Slavery

Unclear on the concept

And today at CPAC, a full-on right wing racist meltdown at a panel discussion on (yes, irony is dead) “minority outreach:” CPAC Participant Defends Slavery at Minority Outreach Panel: It Gave ‘Food and Shelter’ to Blacks.

What this guy says is no different than the rhetoric you can find in the comment sections of almost any right wing blog or news site.

A panel at the Conservative Political Action Committee on Republican minority outreach exploded into controversy on Friday afternoon, after an audience member defended slavery as good for African-Americans.

The exchange occurred after an audience member from North Carolina, 30-year-old Scott Terry, asked whether Republicans could endorse races remaining separate but equal. After the presenter, K. Carl Smith of Frederick Douglass Republicans, answered by referencing a letter by Frederick Douglass forgiving his former master, the audience member said “For what? For feeding him and housing him?”

[…]

When asked by ThinkProgress if he’d accept a society where African-Americans were permanently subservient to whites, he said “I’d be fine with that.” He also claimed that African-Americans “should be allowed to vote in Africa,” and that “all the Tea Parties” were concerned with the same racial problems that he was.

At one point, a woman challenged him on the Republican Party’s roots, to which Terry responded, “I didn’t know the legacy of the Republican Party included women correcting men in public.”
