A recent undercover video release from Project Veritas depicts a top Democratic donor making derogatory remarks about conservative African Americans. The comments were made at a fundraiser for North Carolina U.S. Senate candidate Deborah Ross.
The donor, identified as Benjamin Barber, explains that African Americans voting Republican are "seriously f***ed in the head." He likens them to Jewish guards that worked in concentration camps during the Holocaust, known as Sonderkommandos. Although Barber's remarks are hurtful and inflammatory, this view among Democrats is not new.
Perhaps the most powerful words in the video are found in the reaction of several conservative, African American figures North Carolinians. Among the figures interviewed were Robert Foster, Pastor William Cooper, Bishop Patrick L. Wooden Sr., Pamela Wooden, John Amanchukwu, and James Parker.
Particularly thought provoking was this from John Amanchukwu:
"It's not only dark money. It is racist and evil money, filled with venom. There's an an agenda there. And you can look in his eyes in the video. You can see there's a rage there, and there's a deep-seeded resentment towards African Americans."
Do you agree with these reactions? Whatever motivates people like Benjamin Barber, it certainly appears to be deeply seeded.
