WaPo’s Eugene Robinson: I Wish the Republican Party Could Not Be Racist

NASHVILLE, TN — On Tuesday, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson spoke at Impact Symposium at Vanderbilt University on the topic of “How You See It: Perceptions of (In)Equality.”

Robinson commented on the Republicans opposing President Barack Obama and their perception of being racist for doing so.

“I have written in my column, actually, that I wish there were a Republican Party that would actually go after African-American votes and like, not be racist,” he said. “You know, if they could just like, for a few years not be racist, If they could just cut it out for a few years, and you could find there are a lot of black people that don’t like paying taxes. A lot of black people who are in favor of free enterprise, capitalism, personal responsibility. This is a good platform.”
