GOP Senate Candidate Says ‘Smart African Americans’ Should Stand Up To BLM
Corky Messer, a GOP Senate candidate from New Hampshire, said in a radio interview that he thinks “smart African-Americans” need to counter the Black Lives Matter movement, according to The American Independent.
- During the interview with former Republican New Hampshire House Speaker Bill O'Brien, Messer admitted that the death of George Floyd was “horrific,” but he added that he thinks that "99.999%" of Americans' interactions with the police are "good, protective, and law enforcement doing the right thing."
- He went on to praise conservative African-Americans, who he thought should counter the Black Lives Matter messaging:
"These are smart African American folks who study this, and they have a totally different perspective on all this. And I think their perspective, you know, will help the African American community."
- He added that he believes that Black Lives Matter has a “leftist agenda” that will ultimately lead the African-American community to suffer more.
