(WatchDogNews.org) – On Wednesday, Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and Cedric Richmond (D-LA) got into an argument during a House Judiciary Committee meeting about police reform. The Democrat accused GOP lawmakers of not worrying about violence by law enforcement because they have white children. Apparently, he couldn’t be bothered to learn anything about his colleagues.
After Richmond made his comments about kids, Gaetz asked him if he was saying none of the members of the GOP have “non-white children.” The Republican lawmaker was aghast at his colleague’s comments and on Thursday he revealed that he does, in fact, have a child who isn’t Caucasian.
For all those wondering, this is my son Nestor. We share no blood but he is my life. He came from Cuba (legally, of course) six years ago and lives with me in Florida.
I am so proud of him and raising him has been the best, most rewarding thing I’ve done in my life. pic.twitter.com/JB96wzOzYU

The Democratic Party is ridiculous. Their repeated failure to look past their own rhetoric and acknowledge that not everyone who disagrees with them is racist is just embarrassing at this point.
For the record, people don’t need to have a child of color to have empathy for black people. Richmond’s entire argument was only intended to insult and inflame, which is not a good look for a member of Congress. America should be united now more than ever, but the Democrats continue to get in the way.
