Black Columbia Professor Says GOP Opposition to Medicaid Expansion, Minimum Wage Hike Is Racist

Anything that affects black people is racist?

MSNBC guest Dorian Warren thinks that racism is behind the GOP's opposition to Medicaid expansion, affirmative action, and a minimum wage hike. Warren is a professor of political science and public affairs at Columbia University.

"There's a distinction we should make between racist words and speech, and racist practices and policies. We should be focused on the policies and the racial impact of policies that those Republican leaders frankly stand for," Warren said on Tuesday's The Last Word. It wasn't enough that GOP leaders like Rep. John Boehner and Sen. Mitch McConnell denounced the racist statements of former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.

Warren accused Republicans of racist policies, including Wisconsin's voter ID law which was just struck down by the federal judge.

"We could go down the list," he continued. "The minimum wage, the Congress is going to be voting on, disproportionately affects workers of color. Republicans are against that. The fact that 24 states have refused to expand Medicaid, disproportionately affects people of color, that's a life and issue for people. It affects millions of people."

The huge plus of the lefts overuse of the race card is that it has cheapened it so much as to be almost worthless. The only people who pay attention to the chants of racism are the left’s base voters and the lame stream media.

Liberals are the party of racists, the KKK, anti civil rights, jim crow the list goes on.

THEY are the ones who want to keep blacks on the plantain to ensure the steady stream of "victims" so they can keep getting re-elected to "fix" a problem THEY started and are vehemently against fixing.

Anyone who dares try to fix that is a racist to them!

Monitories, you are being used and exploited by these liberal democrats, wake up!

If this ignorant person actually read the studies, he would know that hiking the minimum wage prices unskilled minority labor out of the job market - that's why Black unemployment is twice that of white unemployment.

For someone not to be a colored person, their skin would have to be a neutral gray. That's science. Oh wait, most of you religious right folks don't believe in science. It's the Bible all the way...

President Obama said, “They kind of speak for themselves … When ignorant folks want to advertise their ignorance, you don’t have to do anything, you just let them talk"

He must be describing the right wing commenters here.

Anon 2:25: Thats the crazy thing.. The political party trying to tell black people that they are too stupid to compete unless whites are held back, is not seen at the "racist" political group. The group that wants to treat everyone the same and give everyone the same opportunities is the one portrayed as racist.
