Maine Republican chairman Charlie Webster says one little thing about the “dozens, dozens of black people who came in and voted on Election Day [but] nobody in town knows anybody that’s black” — and suddenly everyone is calling him a racist. Maybe he just didn’t know that was legal now!
Well, before everyone jumps to conclusions, Webster would like to set the record straight. He’s not racist. He knows black people:
There’s nothing about me that would be discriminatory. I know black people. I play basketball every Sunday with a black guy. He’s a great friend of mine. Nobody would ever accuse me of suggesting anything.
Not to mention all the tacos he eats with his Mexican gardener on Thursdays!
*We know you’re not discriminatory either. We bet you have lots of Asian friends — and undoubtedly they would love nothing more for the holidays than a nice math textbook. Or perhaps you are Hannukah shopping for your Jewish friend? You’ll certainly be needing these. Well anyway, we’re off to go be emotional and dance with an over-bite now.
