The dirty little secret is out, racism is alive and well, and disguised as the “take our country back” Republican Party agenda:
Fox News: Virginia Democratic Rep. Jim Moran is blaming his party's losses last November in large part on voters who "don't want to be governed by an African-American." The Virginia congressman compared the political environment to that which preceded the Civil War and suggested race was a determining factor.
"In this case a lot of people in this country, it's my belief, don't want to be governed by an African-American, particularly one who is inclusive, who is liberal, who wants to spend money on everyone and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society. And that's a basic philosophical clash," Moran said.
Reached for comment, Moran's office stood by the remarks.
“Rather than ignore this issue or pretend it isn't there, the congressman believes we are better off discussing it in order to overcome it."
