Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Your World With Neil Cavuto,” Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) demanded an aplogy from Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) for saying that Obama was unpopular in Louisiana because “the South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans” or woman.
Jindal said, “I thought Mary’s comments were ridiculous and offensive. She is basically calling the people of Louisiana — calling all of the South racists. she owes us an apology. Here in Louisiana and across the South we don’t think in terms of black and white, the only colors that meet here are red, white, and blue. Saturday night, purple and gold as we cheer the LSU Tigers on to victory. It’s not about race. You don’t have to disagree — there are many folks who disagree with this president’s policies not just in Louisiana but across all 50 states. It is just simply wrong, It is ridiculous to call people racist who happen to disagree with this president’s policies.”
