Republican Party caught darkening Colin Kaepernick's skin for disparaging graphic -- then lying about

The congressional arm of the Republican Party was caught posting a racist meme of NFL player Colin Kaepernick, and when asked about it, they got caught in a lie.

Yahoo News’ White House correspondent, Hunter Walker caught the National Republican Congressional Committee pushing out a disparaging meme of Kaepernick. While that’s hardly unheard of from right-wing groups and individuals, the NRCC took the extra step to darken Kaepernick’s skin to make him appear darker.

“House Republicans are running on racism, plain and simple. It’s disgusting, it’s offensive and it should be fireable, but there’s no accountability in the Republican Party,” a Democratic operative said.

When given the opportunity to clean up the public relations disaster, the NRCC then lied about it.

“The photo was not darkened,” said NRCC communications director Chris Pack.

3. The bigots among us stop at nothing.

How sad that anyone would like that making skin darker makes a person bad.

Stupid and bigotted.
