Rep. Steve King: Racial Profiling Not Factor in Ferguson Protests, All of Continental Origin
Rep. Steve King proved once again why he is a raving lunatic. He was asked by Newsmax TV if the Congressional Black Caucus should investigate what’s occurring in Ferguson over the murder of unarmed black teen Michael Brown and he said it’s not necessary because they are all black. Huh?

“This idea of no racial profiling,” King said, “I’ve seen the video. It looks to me like you don’t need to bother with that particular factor because they all appear to be of a single origin, I should say, a continental origin might be the way to phrase that.” “I just reject race-based politics, identity politics” King concluded. “I think we’re all God’s children. We all should be held to the same standards and the same level of behavior.” Source: Huffington Post
Let’s hope Rep. King is talking about the CBC and not trying to insult the name of Michael Brown and all the people who are genuinely concerned and disgusted at the miscarriage of justice, including what led to his murder.
