The Republican Shame Of Nevada Proclaims 'Racism Is Over'

In case you didn't notice, we have a black (aka blah) president. Let's put this race issue to rest.

Michele Fiore is at it again. In a little less than two minutes, this delinquent tax evader not only uses the term "colored" in 2015, but she proclaims that racism is no longer an issue since we have a black president, "in case you didn't notice." Like all racist Republicans, Fiore favors a voter-ID law that will lower the turnout of minorities who are likely to oppose her precious Tea Party.

From The Raw Story:

Fiore is one of the cosponsors of a proposed voter ID law in Nevada which — like all such laws — has been predicted to have an adverse effect on voter turnout by blacks, the elderly and students, all traditionally Democratic voting blocs.

Addressing “peers that are concerned with color,” Fiore went on to congratulate Democratic Assemblyman Harvey J. Munford — an opponent of the voter ID law — for being “the first colored man to graduate from his college.”

“We’re in 2015 and we have a black president, in case anyone didn’t notice,” she added. “So the color and the race issue, I think it’s time that we put that to rest.”

Unfortunately for those of us with compassion and ethics, we understand that racism is anything but a thing of the past.

Recently, small businesses were vandalized with stickers that say "exclusively for white people" on businesses in the Texas capital of Austin. And the mayor is not amused.

If it were a law that prevented people like her close pal, Cliven Bundy from voting for the fundamentalist nutjob party, I'm sure she'd do a complete one-eighty and demand that voter ID not be required. It's discriminatory, if it hurts white people, that is.
