Chris McDaniel audio: Slavery, race, women

New audio from 2006 or 2007 has surfaced of Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel, who’s mounting a primary challenge against incumbent GOP Sen. Thad Cochran, offering a series of controversial thoughts on slavery, race and women.

The footage was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

Asked, for example, about reparations for slavery, McDaniel said: “If they pass reparations, and my taxes are going up, I ain’t paying taxes.”

And on having to learn Spanish, he said: “You’ll have to learn just enough to ask where the bathroom is. Baños. Baños. That’s what you say.”
