Just when you think Phil Jensen had that foot out of his mouth from last election’s comments over racial discrimination….
“If someone was a member of the Ku Klux Klan, and they were running a little bakery for instance, the majority of us would find it detestable that they refuse to serve blacks, and guess what? In a matter of weeks or so that business would shut down because no one is going to patronize them,” Jensen told the Rapid City Journal.
…. he manages to wedge it back in there with the other foot with his comments in today’s Rapid City Journal:
Speaking over the phone on the way to Pierre on Tuesday, Jensen recalled when one of his constituents told him he witnessed “dozens of South Americans” fleeing a white bus parked near downtown Rapid City.
“He knew they were South Americans,” Jensen said, “because they had different skull structures and skin tones from Mexicans.”
“He knew they were South Americans,” Jensen said, “because they had different skull structures and skin tones from Mexicans.” Wow. I didn’t realize we had anthropology and bone structure experts wandering the streets.
It’s time to start cringing again.
