Can it get worse than this? During the debate in the Indiana House over the Religious Freedom and Restoration Act, state Rep. Vanessa Summers, (D-Indianapolis) rose to set a new record in outrageous race-baiting.
“I told [Republican colleague] Jud McMillin I love his son, but he’s scared of me because of my color.”
Responding to a rumble of protest from her assembled colleagues, Summers insisted, “It’s true.” When challenged on the assertion later. she defended her accusation, saying:
“He (the eighteen-month-old child) looked at me like I was a monster and turned around and cried. And I told him (McMillin) you need to introduce your child to some people that are dark-skinned so he will not be scared.”
There are so many take-aways from this episode that it’s difficult to know where to begin, or where to stop.
