‘I’m Not A Racist’ Says Former NY GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Who Sent ‘Run Ni**er Run’ Email
Paladino (R-Tea Party) sent an email Wednesday threatening to “take all appropriate legal or other action at my disposal to do so” against all four women, who are black, according to Raw Story.
“They slander me, okay, consistently by calling me a racist,” Paladino told WGRZ-TV.
“Do you intend to sue the individuals that you listed on the email?” the reporter asked.
“If they keep up the nonsense, and playing the race card, and playing this sexist thing, you know, it just so happens that the minority group is African American and they’re women,” Paladino responded.
When asked if he was racist, Paladino said, “Give me a break, will you please? All right. I’m fighting for the poor kids, okay, that can’t afford to stand up there and argue with these people.”
