State-level political racism was on show in the Alabama legislature recently when Democrat Representative Alvin Holmes took the floor to speak against a pro-life bill being debated on the floor.
During arguments concerning the bill, Mr. Holmes made the bizarre claim that:
“…if they’re (a white persons’) daughter got pregnant by a black man, they gone make their daughter have an abortion. They ain’t gone let her have the baby.”
He went on to challenge a white woman by asking her if her daughter got pregnant by a black man, “you gone let her have the baby?”. When she replied, “Yes sir”, he said, “Then after the baby’s born what you do with it?”
She replied, “Let it run around in my living room and enjoy it as my grandchild.” Rep. Holmes then retorted, “With them other little blonde kids runnin’ around in there?”
Alvin Holmes asserted:
“Ninety-nine percent of the all of the white people in here are going to raise their hand that they are against abortion. On the other hand, 99 percent of the whites who are sitting in here now, if their daughter got pregnant by a black man, they are going to make their daughter have an abortion.”
