Black Female Lawmakers Walk Out After White Republican Spews Racism And Misogyny (VIDEO)

"White Republican" seems a bit redundant!

Black Female Lawmakers Walk Out After White Republican Spews Racism And Misogyny (VIDEO)

November 2014 elections can’t come soon enough. More and more of our tax dollars get spent on GOP efforts to hack away at women’s rights, specifically women’s reproductive rights, and now, specifically, black women’s reproductive rights. My blood runs hot with this one.

This is the story of a white, male, Florida lawmaker who thinks he knows more about what’s best for black women and their reproductive choices than they do. He’s ‘concerned,’ bless his little heart. House Bill 845, sponsored by Rep. Charles Van Zant (R-Keystone Heights), would make it a third-degree felony in Florida to perform an abortion based on the race or gender of the fetus. What? When did that become a problem? The unstated insult here is that a white male baby would never be aborted because of its race or gender so we have to keep an eye on women, particularly black women. You know, just in case.

4. He should add an amendment to do something about that extra bone in their feet, too.

Seriously? What century are we living in?

5. Well, our adversaries have just about erased most of the progress made

during the 20th century, so I'd say we're circa late 1800s/early 1900s right about now.

They're now currently busy at work erasing the Enlightenment and all gains made after it.

6. That just gave me a vision of Willard ("Mitt") Romney & Ann...

...wearing velvet three-cornered hats with feathers on them, jumping around
on dancing horses, in some kind of sculpted garden that would make Versailles
look like a nicely kept midwestern strip mall.

What's the damned point? "I've got mine. F' U."

...Props to *MY* congresswoman, Gwen Moore.
