Mississippi Tea Party Candidate Mocks Whiny Minorities

• Vowed not to pay taxes if they increased because of reparations. “If they pass reparations, and my taxes are going up, I ain’t paying taxes. Isn’t that sad? And believe me I have the greatest respect for the IRS. I fear the I-R-S. Fear! Fear. How you gonna make me pay for something that I had nothing to do with? How you gonna do that to me? I don’t get it.”

• Linked Vanilla Ice to minstrel shows. “Now look, minstrel shows were very offensive because what you had was a white guy dressed as a black guy and acting black, kinda like Vanilla Ice did in the 80s. That’s kinda what he was doing, except he didn’t have the blackface on and if he had it on he woulda been in trouble. You don’t want to do that. It’s never good to make fun of somebody’s race merely because of the race.”
