Comedian Wanda Sykes ignited controversy last week after she said the Republican effort to repeal and replace Obamacare is rooted in racism.
Speaking on “The View,” Sykes decried the effort to replace Obamacare with a market-based, consumer-centered solution as “racism.”
“That’s it! They hate having a black president and they want to get rid of it. That’s what it is,” Skyes said.
But political commentator and TheBlaze Radio host Lawrence Jones disagrees — adamantly. During an appearance on “Fox and Friends Weekend” on Saturday, Jones explained that the effort to repeal and replace Obamacare has nothing to do with racism. In fact, Jones said he finds it “comical” that liberals are so worried about black Americans when the only thing liberal policies sow across the country is more hardship for minority communities.
