Senate Candidate Tweets Racist Attack On African American Opponent Cory Booker

Quote:
The U.S. Senate campaign of Steve Lonegan, who is widely expected to be the Republican nominee in a special election to replace the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), tweeted a racist attack on Newark Mayor Cory Booker, the likely Democratic nominee. Lonegan’s tweet, which has since been deleted, read “#breaking just leaked – Cory Booker’s foreign policy debate prep notes,” and included an image of the city of Newark divided up according to various ethnicities:



A member of Lonegan’s campaign claims that the candidate asked for the tweet to be taken down because he “didn’t find it funny or reflective of the way he thinks.”
They're coming out of the woodwork.

Cory Booker is reportedly so pissed he saved some more people from burning buildings.

And the racist "attack" is? You see Klansmen behind every tree don't you?

Also, it doesn't matter what they tweet, Booker is just about unstoppable.

Racist? Where? Please explain, because I see no racism or anything that could be reasonably construed as such. By all means, proceed:

Please point out the racism, OP is seriously becoming a detriment to this forum. Full on racism derangement syndrome, for all of us to witness first-hand.

There isn't any. Racism is a figment of black people's imagination (even the ones that got shot for merely walking around at night with a hoody on).

Senate Candidate Tweets Racist Attack On African American Opponent Cory Booker

I don't understand. The article said the candidate tweeted something offensive but the picture shows that the hand drawing was leaked. So did he really tweet that drawing?

If the candidate did tweet something, why not post/re-tweet what he tweeted instead of "leaking" something.

Can someone explain to me how this drawing is racist? It isn't even racial. References to countries that are not white does not mean racism you fagtards
