Virginia State Senator Claims Romney Success is Due to Racism

In response to a recent Quinnipiac poll showing Virginia voters split 44% to 44% between presidential candidates Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, Democratic State Senator L. Louise Lucas is claiming that Gov. Romney is appealing to racists who do not want to see anyone other than a white man in the oval office. She realized people would cringe when hearing this, but said that it's because they don't want to hear the truth.
When asked by John Fredericks on his radio show why Mitt Romney has caught up to Obama in the polls regardless of Obama's recent tour of the state, Senator Lucas insisted:
“Mitt Romney, he’s speaking to ... a segment of the population who does not like to see people other than a white man in the White House or in any other elective position. Let’s be real clear about it — Mitt Romney is speaking to a group of people out there who don’t like folks like President Barack Obama in any elective or leadership position. We know what’s going on here. And some people may be afraid to say it, but I’m not. ... He’s speaking to that fringe out there who do not want to see anybody but a white person in a leadership position.”
When Fredericks asked whether she actually believed that racism could still play such a big effect in this day and age, Senator Lucas responded:
“I absolutely believe it’s all about race, and for the first time in my life I’ve been able to convince my children, finally, that racism is alive and well."
What a great lesson to teach your children, let alone grandchildren...
