Pat Garofalo Racist

State Representative Pat Garofalo from Minnesota tweeted out the following statement earlier tonight:

I don’t know why he would think this was appropriate, correct, or even funny but it’s pretty incredible that a state rep would say something like this in public. I say in public because I think we all know how some of these guys operate behind closed doors.

I would think an apology is coming but he responded to a couple tweets and hasn’t backed down yet.

Stay woke.

    Rep. Garofalo v. Rep. Khan racism Grammy Award and the winner is So, why, are liberal media not covering this racist attack on Somalis?

    Hockey playing hillbillies. There are still a lot of hateful heathens in that state outside of the TC metro area. Anyone can become a state rep…from farmers to former pro wrestlers. It’s not uncommon to hear the Mall of America being called the ‘Mall of Africa’ by lifers in non urban areas.

      Hockey Playing Hillbillies? WTF. Hillbillies don’t play hockey you goof. And for your information the only reason the players in the NBA are there is because they weren’t born a foot shorter.

      If Lebron was 5 8″ he’d be working at McDonalds.

    The truth hurts. Deal with it.

      what truth?, if the NBA folded today
      There would be white trainers, PR excecs,cheerleaders, concession stands workers, ticket takers, parking lot attendants resorting to crime for sooner than a 24yr old black millionaire with a guaranteed pension.

      Doc, we’re waiting for a reply to Bob’s comment. Don’t run now.

  4. Larry says:

    Bob – I’m guessing that the 24 yr old Black Millionaires would be broke in 2 yrs and couldn’t take care of their entourage

  5. manfred says:

    Absolutely correct.

  6. Abk says:

    What an idiotic statement! Now I do believe if there were no NBA, than some players may have turned to crime. We hear all the time of players saying how these sports kept them out of the streets. However, to say something like what mr. Garofalo said is just uncalled for.

  7. Fred says:

    This is a thin veiled attempt to pander to a subset of his constituency. By trotting out the most cliched stereotypes about Black Men, he goads the trolls into joining in with statistics and blah blah blah at the ready. Garofalo is the worst kind of narcissist.

  8. Pez says:

    The NBA is racist. Despite a population of approximately 14% of the American people, blacks make up around 80% of the league’s players. Why is this never pointed out?

  9. Fred says:

    The race card.. really? So by that same logic then Hockey is racist too? Blacks account for less that 3% of all Hockey players. You, my friend, are pathetic.
