It may surprise you to hear that today’s dumbass politician is not a Republican, he’s a Democrat. Rep. Alvin Holmes (D) of Alabama said during a debate on abortion that if the Republicans’ white daughters got pregnant by a black man, they’d support abortion. And then he said this:
State representative Alvin Holmes (D) Montgomery, said republican lawmakers would support abortion if their daughters became pregnant by black men. Holmes later said he would offer $100,000 cash to anyone who could show “a whole bunch of whites” have adopted black children in Alabama.
Today at the state house, white parents who adopted mixed race or minority children said it’s time for Holmes to ‘pay up.’
Beverly Owings is an adoptive mother of a 13-year-old bi-racial daughter. “I would like for him to ‘man up.’ He’s made the statement. He needs to put his money where is mouth is.”
Owings, a supporter of trans racial adoptions in Alabama, is part of a movement called Faces of Families in Alabama.
Supporters of trans racial adoptions rallied this afternoon to show that families shouldn’t be defined by race.
Holmes isn’t backing down:
Holmes believes he’s not in the wrong.
“The majority of the white people in the state of Alabama are against adopting black children. The majority of people in the state of Alabama, in my opinion, do not want their daughters having black babies. They know it’s true and I know it’s true. They aren’t going to say ‘yes, Alvin Holmes is right,” said Holmes.
But that isn’t really relevant to what you said. “A whole bunch” doesn’t mean a majority. You said something stupid. Own up to it.
