Democrat Congressman Suggests Rudy Giuliani Is Racist

Rep. Steve Cohen, a Florida Democrat, accuses Rudy Giuliani of being a racist, even using language that equates the former New York City mayor with the slave-owning founders of the United States.

“Maybe he thinks he loves it 3/5 as much as Giuliani & his pals,” Cohen tweeted, after criticizing Giulani’s question.

Talking Points Memo points out that Cohen was referring to a compromise at the 1787 Constitutional Convention, which, for representation in Congress, allowed states to count slaves as 3/5 of a person.

Cohen’s tweet suggests that Giuliani and “his pals” still believe that African-Americans were only 3/5 of a person.
