Project 21’s Borelli to Rep. Carson: “Where is Your Proof?”

In response to the public remarks by Representative Andre Carson (D-IN), in which he said members the tea party movement and even some of the movement’s supporters in Congress consider blacks “second-class citizens” and “would love to see” them “hanging on a tree,” Project 21 fellow Deneen Borelli says that Carson must be “held accountable for his words” and the Congressional Black Caucus must be held responsible for its institutional silence since they were made at a CBC event.  Deneen says she is “calling [Carson] out” and demanding that he answer her simple question: “Where is your proof?” She further notes that this despicable form of “racial politics” can “whip up” unwanted racial unrest.  Deneen’s discussion with co-host Martha MacCallum about this unfortunate and ugly political event was part of the 9/1/11 edition of “America’s Newsroom” on the Fox News Channel.
