The Alabama Senate candidate referred to Native Americans and Asians as “reds and yellows” during a recent campaign speech.
Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore has made yet another political gaffe, this time referring to Native Americans and Asians as “reds and yellows,” during a recent campaign speech.
“Now we have blacks and whites fighting, reds and yellows fighting, Democrats and Republicans fighting, men and women fighting. What’s going to unite us? What’s going to bring us back together? A president? A Congress? No. It’s going to be God,” Moore remarked in a video first reported on by The Hill.
“Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, one of two Republicans competing in a primary runoff next week, used racially insensitive terms to describe Native Americans and Asians during a campaign speech on Sunday.”
“Moore, a former chief justice on the state Supreme Court, lamented divisions between Americans based on race, mentioning “reds and yellows.”
This is not the first gaffe Moore has made last week. CNN reported how Moore “implied that the 9/11 terror attacks could have been caused by a lack of religious faith.”
Moore’s campaign did not respond to The Hill’s request for comment. President Trump will be campaigning for Moore’s opponent, Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL), this weekend as the race has become closer in recent weeks.
