Forty-eight hours after Election Day 2014, it was confirmed that the Republican party regained control of the U.S. Senate. Anthony, a C-SPAN caller from San Diego, California also confirmed what almost all of us already knew to be true—this is about race.
The caller started off saying, “I would just like to say, that the Republicans—and I’m a Republican—please do not overreach. I know they’re going to overreach but I’m telling you, if you advocate for the repeal of Obamacare and you get too extreme, then Hillary Clinton will be elected President in 2016.” He goes on, saying, “This is about race. The Republicans hate that nigger, Obama.”
C-SPAN’s Scully hangs up on the live caller and apologizes to viewers and listeners for hearing the offensive language on air. It’s almost 2015 and it’s a disgrace to hear people, not just use the n-word so openly and freely towards blacks, but towards Barack Obama, the President of the United States of America.
