Maine Governor Paul LePage has found himself in hot water for some racially charged comments he made at a townhall meeting on Wednesday night:
“These are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty – these types of guys – they come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, they go back home,” LePage told a large crowd. “Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue we have to deal with down the road.”
He later clarified, after lots of outrage, that he meant “Maine women” not “white women.” Well, that just fixes everything.
Team Blackness also discussed babies, an Alabama chief justice’s attempt to block judges from granting same-sex marriage licenses, and Satan.
