Republican not being racist again....

Sadly, Chris Hayes didn't let either of his guests react to Rep. Steve King's jaw dropping white supremacist lecture on history. After columnist Charlie Pierce mentioned the "wired...unhappy dissatisfied crowd of white people" at the convention, King chimed in.

Esquire: Here's what King said tonight about white people and, you know, non-whites:
"This whole white people business, though, does get a little tired…I'd ask you to go back through history and figure out: Where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people that you're talking about? Where did any other sub-group of people contribute more to civilization?"

King just came out with a clarification...something he felt he had to do?
"It’s pretty close [to what I said]. What I really said was 'Western civilization' and when you describe Western civilization that can mean much of Western civilization happens to be Caucasians. But we should not apologize for our culture or our civilization."  
Sure, that's what he said originally.
