Marjorie Taylor Greene says probably the most racist issues you’ll ever hear

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene tried to say she’s not racist, but ended up sounding really racist.


Marjorie Taylor Greene: “I know a lot of white people who are just as lazy and sad and probably worse than black people I know.”

Greene said: “Everyone’s unemployment has to do with bad decisions and personal responsibility, and that in turn has nothing to do with skin color. I know a lot of white people who are just as lazy and sad and probably worse than black people I know and I wouldn’t hire them because they’re lazy. They’re sorry, and they’re pathetic, and it’s all to do with their bad decisions.”

The phrase probably worse than blacks demonstrates the inherent racism of Greene’s beliefs. She assumes that black people are lazy and sad and that something must be really wrong with a white person who is even lazier and sadder than a black person.

Unemployment is not caused by bad decisions. If the city’s largest employer closes, it won’t be the fault of the employees who lost their jobs. Greene’s comments are not unique in their racism and belief that the unemployed are responsible for their own unemployment.

None of their points were true. The unemployed are not lazy, and in most cases it is not their fault that they are unemployed.

The United States has a long history of blaming and demonizing the poor. Marjorie Taylor Greene continued this attack, adding a side dish of racism to the toxic mix.
