"I think that's an important issue," said Hatch. "He's going up against a black guy! He's going against Obama. This is a racial issue."
The Hatch the quotes are referring to is one Bret Hatch. A Ron Paul supporter who got under Flipper's skin earlier today by asking the republican candidate a question about his religion.
"A tense moment transpired during a town hall hosted by Mitt Romney today in Wisconsin when an audience member began reading verses from the Book of Mormon and questioned Romney on his stance on interracial relationships.
When a man's hand shot up in the air to ask a question, Romney seemed to take note that he was holding papers, typically a sign that the questioner has a long-winded question they've chosen to write out, and as the man began to speak remarked, "I know where this is going. Ha. Ha. Ha."
"Your Mormon faith might not be a concern in the election but I think it might be as well as I found these verses in the Mormon book," said 28-year-old Bret Hatch, as the microphone turned on.
As Hatch trialed off, Romney interjected: "Why don't you give me a question?"
"Ok, well, in the Mormon book it says there were a blackness came upon all the children of Canaan that they were despised," Hatch continued.
"I'm sorry we're just not going to have a discussion about religion in my view, but if you have a question, I'll be happy to answer your question," Romney said.
"I guess my question is do you believe it's a sin for a white man to marry and procreate with a black?" asked Hatch.
"No," Romney responded sternly, before turning to face the other side of the room.
"Next question," said Romney."
That's it, Flipper? "Next question"? You don't care to expound on that a little bit?
I don't know, I am going to have to go to Brohammas on this one. He is a Mormon, and he is in a unique position to speak to this issue.
Finally, I guess even wealthy black folks are starting to find out that they are not special in A-merry-ca. Tyler Perry was profiled, and Oprah was called out on FOX for making a perfectly reasonable statement about the Trayvon Martin case.
And these folks aren't even political. Oprah cries with suburban white housewives, and Tyler makes movies about the church sprinkled in with all kinds of laughter and jokes. Sorry guys, welcome to post racial A-merry-ca. Just be glad that you already got paid.
