Bloomberg Writer: Black Republicans Are a 'Lower' Group

Bloomberg writer Francis Wilkinson recently wrote a piece claiming that Republican Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina--an African American--only became a senator because Republicans "lowered the bar" for his appointment. He also claimed that Scott’s candidacy serves as a "shield" for racist Tea Party members to hide behind.

In an article that is more invective than analysis, Wilkinson essentially called Senator Scott a do-nothing senator. He said Scott acted like a "shield" for racist, Confederate flag-waving Tea Party members who need someone to replace Herman Cain as the favorite candidate behind whom they can hide their racism.


Here is that article by Bloomberg writer Francis Wilkinson: Do Republicans Lower the Bar for Blacks?
