Okay, so all the racist nuts ain’t in Texas.
A candidate for New York State Senate has sparked a firestorm in Harlem after telling NBC 4 New York’s I-Team he was planning to hand out “Kool Aid, KFC and watermelons” at a campaign event in the primarily black community.
Jon Girodes, the Republican candidate for New York’s 30th District in the November election, used the racially stereotypical food reference in an email to the I-Team during an exchange about a disputed real estate deal.
“Ps I’m hosting an event in Harlem which will be in front of the state building in a few weeks. We will (donate) Kool Aid, KFC and watermelons to the public on 125th street in Harlem. Please join us to help the community,” he wrote.
Last time he ran, he got 4% of the vote. I can’t imagine why.
