Rep. Steve King: No Need For Investigation Into Ferguson Profiling Since They’re All ‘Of Continental Origin’
Asked by former Congressman J.D. Hayworth on Newsmax TV if the Congressional Black Caucus should look into what’s going on in Ferguson, Missouri, Rep. Steve King said it’s not necessary because, basically, they’re all black.
“This idea of no racial profiling,” King said, “I’ve seen the video. It looks to me like you don’t need to bother with that particular factor because they all appear to be of a single origin, I should say, a continental origin might be the way to phrase that.”
“I just reject race-based politics, identity politics” King concluded. “I think we’re all God’s children. We all should be held to the same standards and the same level of behavior.”
