Doesn't surprise me.

Arizona was the last state to recognize Dr. King day. It doesn't surprise me that this racist . . . would be so condescending of Mr. Ellison whom I have had the pleasure to work with. Yes. He did take his oath on the Koran ; does this make him a terrorist or a terrorist sympathizer? Why not go after a Southern Baptist who for many years advocated for the separation of the races and Black inferiority? Times are changing and so is the "complexion" of America. Some people can't stand it and feel the need to demonize whatever they don't understand so they can feel justified in their prejudice. That's all this is. Plain old fashioned bigotry.
