The republican candidate of the hour is Mitt Romney. He’s riding pretty high on his win in the primary elections in Maryland, Wisconsin, and D.C. yesterday. But, his bones continue to fall out of his closet as he remains in the campaign. As he campaigned in Mormon country, Wisconsin was obviously fine with his answers on whether he believed that “it’s a sin for a white man to marry and procreate with a black woman.”
But as he hurried to answer “no” and move on, the Ron Paul supporter, Bret Hatch, 28, blasted him with more controversial questions on race that are linked to Romney’s Mormon faith. According to The Grio, he asked Romney whether he agreed with a passage from the Book of Mormon “that describes a cursing of people with a ‘skin of blackness.’ ” But before he could read the full passage, Romney’s staff snatched the microphone from Hatch.
But, in case there was any confusion on what Romney’s response, or lack thereof, really meant, Lawrence O’Donnell interpreted the entire sordid affair for us. But not only did he interpret Romney’s avoidance of the issue, he gave a history lesson on the Mormon faith that was equally concerning as Romney’s dodge.
