Jeffrey Lord Demands Apology For Slavery From Black Commentator

Jeffrey Lord's presence on a panel discussing race is a reminder of how disgusting the Trump campaign is.

Of all the Trump surrogates, Jeffrey Lord has been the most odious when it comes to the history of race relations, and racism in America.

He's constantly tried to rewrite history and claimed the KKK was a progressive leftists group and ignore modern history when he weirdly attacks the Demarcation party for not apologizing for slavery.

Thursday night on CNN's AC360, he wondered when Bakari Sellers, an African American panelist would apologize to the nation for slavery.

He really said that.

During a panel discussion about the KKK's support of Donald Trump, Rep. Jack Kingston proclaimed that the Democratic Party is playing the race card against Donald Trump.

Bakari Sellers confronted him and said, "Congressman, you don't want to deal with race..."

Kingston objected by saying he authored a bill for the Civil Rights Museum.

Sellers, knowing Trump's negative history when dealing with African Americans replied, "You support Donald Trump. Why don't you apologize to the Central Park Five? Why don't you apologize to Miss Mae Wiggins, who was discriminated against --"

That's when the ridiculous Jeffrey Lord asked, " When is Bakari going to get around to apologizing for slavery? I'm still waiting on that."

Bakari shook his head and said, "Oh, my God."

The rest of the panel broke out in a strained laughter in response to an old white a-hole mouthing those words to an African American.

C&L's Lisa Patton says:

lissapatton2 hours ago Yes. Agreed. Black people should apologize for slavery. It's apparent.
