The CPAC Hits Keep on Comin’: Black Man Tossed Out After Wingnut Screams at Him, ‘Race Doesn’t Matter’
Another graphic example of the right wing’s “minority outreach:” CPAC: Black Man Tossed Out After Breitbart Hack Screams at Him ‘Race Doesn’t Matter’.
In this video from CPAC, a black man seems like he sincerely interested in helping find a way for conservatives to appeal to other African Americans, but then he suddenly gets screamed on by a white guy who insists that “race doesn’t matter.” Which in short, summarizes why the Republicans continually lose the vote of any group that doesn’t have white skin. Here is a partial transcript:
Black guy: “Recruit us.”
White guy: “So?”
Black guy: “What’s wrong with the message?”
White guy: “Why didn’t you go out and look?”
Black guy: “What’s wrong with the message? How many?” (Holding up five fingers on one hand)
White guy: “I don’t count?!?!”
Black guy: “It matters.”
White guy: “I don’t ask people what their . . ?”
Black guy: “It matters because.”
White guy: ((unintelligible))
Black guy: “I do. Cause race matters.”
White guy: “No it doesn’t!!! You’re an American! You’re not a black person! You’re an American! I didn’t go in and count all the Jews?”
The white guy continues to scream at the black guy, and doesn’t get asked to leave. The black guy gets asked to leave. There’s a shocker.
