As we all saw on this website, Mitt Romney actually went to the NAACP National Convention in Houston, TX, cited his family’s history of supporting “civil rights,” told them if they knew what was in his heart that they would vote for him, and he also pandered to them by offering to use White taxpayer dollars to send the Black Undertow to White suburban schools in another ludicrous social engineering scheme designed to achieve the goal of “racial equality.”
“Racism is alive and well in Virginia and is subtly manifested in Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s outreach to voters, a local legislator and key Obama surrogate said in a recent interview.
Those comments made Friday by Portsmouth Democratic Sen. Louise Lucas during a local radio interview on behalf of President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign have taken on a life of their own, particularly in conservative media.
On “The John Fredericks Show” on WHKT (1650 AM), Lucas said Romney is “speaking to a segment of the population who does not like to see people other than a white man in the White House or any other elected position.” . . .
“Let’s be real clear about it. Mitt Romney is speaking to a group of people out there who don’t like folks like President Barack Obama in any elected or leadership position,” she added.
“We know what’s going on here,” Lucas continued. “Some people may be afraid to say it, but I’m not. He’s speaking to that fringe out there who do not want to see anybody other than a white person in a leadership position.”
Note: This segment of the White population is hardly sold on voting for Mitt Romney in November. He’s overperforming at 1 percent with the black vote though.
