Racism is alive and well in Virginia says Louise Lucas

The Virginian Pilot begins the story this way: Racism is alive and well in Virginia and is subtly manifested in Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's outreach to voters

The story is about Louise Lucas and her incendiary comments about Romney and race in a radio interview.

Democrat State Senator Louise Lucas


Is Louise Lucas the Bull Conner of Virginia?  Well, they have this in common, they’re both elected Democrats and they’re both outspoken racists.  They both see elections about the color of their skin, not the content of their character.   









There is a difference.  Bull Connor used fire hoses and police dogs to intimidate black people in his day.  Louise Lucas limits herself to racist words and racist accusations to keep black people on the Democrat’s plantation and to teach her children to hate white people. 









The black unemployment rate is over 13% and the black youth unemployment rate runs around 50% under the Obama administration, but for Lucas and her group, racial solidarity trumps jobs and opportunity.  Nearly every black person who voted in 2008 voted for “the black guy” in a show of racial solidarity not even seen in the Jim Crow South.  Lucas is working hard to keep it that way, reminding the people who heard her comments on the radio the Romney is  …. wait for it …. WHITE. 


The Virginian Pilot’s Julian Walker didn’t want to call Lucas a racist.  There is not a word of condemnation in the story from the editorial perspective,  The only criticism comes from a spokesman for Gov. Bob McDonnell.

His quotations were interspersed with “explanatory” remarks, so I went to a source that quoted Lucas directly, PJ Media’s Bryan Preston: 


SENATOR LUCAS: What I am saying to you is Mitt Romney, he’s speaking to a segment of the population, who does not like to see people other than a White man in a White House or any other elected position.

Let’s be real clear about it… let’s be real clear  Mitt Romney is speaking to a group of people out there who don’t like folks like Barack Obama in any elected or leadership position. We know what’s going on here and some people may be afraid to say it but I am not. I am not afraid to say it. 
He’s speaking to that fringe out there who do not want to see anybody other than a white person in a leadership position. Senator Miller said it before she died and I agreed with her. They don’t want President Barack Obama in office as President and for all the reasons that you and I and alot of other people understand.
HOST: Do you really believe now that this all about race?
LUCAS: I absolutely believe it’s all about race and for the first time I’ve convinced my children finally that racism is alive and well.
HOST: Even in Virginia?
LUCAS: In Virginia how about all across this nation. And especially in Virginia!


Preston comments:
  To the extent that either candidate’s appeal can be fairly characterized as racist, it has to be Obama’s. His campaign has “African Americans for Obama” and “Hispanics for Obama,” and Obama was certainly speaking to a segment of the population when he goaded Hispanic voters to “punish their enemies,” meaning people who oppose amnesty for illegal aliens. Obama’s attorney general made a racist statement in congressional testimony when he referred to “my people.” Additionally, Obama can expect to count on about 95% of the black vote despite the fact that black unemployment far outpaces the rest of the nation.
If Romney ever begins a group named “White People for Romney” you would have the same racist appeal that team Obama and its surrogate Louise Lucas have for black voters.  But read Lucas’ comments again, she has managed to raise her kids as racists.  That's just sad.
At this point in the country’s evolution on race, it isn’t white racists who are dividing us. Black racists are the ones who are keeping the wound fresh and bleeding. And they are doing it to maintain political power and wealth and for no other reason. And they have their enablers in the media who pounce on any manifestations of white expressions of racism but who avert their eyes and become curiously shy when the more virulent black racism is expressed.

UPDATE:
Here's the actual show audio.

Louise Lucas is an embarrassment to Virginia.

She wouldn't have a job if she didn't have "racism" to whine about. That's the problem.
