GOP: Racism is Over Because Rosa Parks Ended It

GOP Credits Rosa Parks For ‘Ending Racism’

The Republican National Committee celebrated the 58th anniversary of Rosa Parks refusing to give up her seat on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama, by proclaiming in a tweet that racism has ended.

Racism, of course, hasn’t ended and may have actually increased since the election of President Obama in 2008. Some research contends that “racism cost the president more than five million votes in 2008 and 2012″ and a 2012 survey from the Associated Press found that “51 percent of Americans explicitly express anti-Black prejudice, up from 48 percent in 2008.”

The survey concluded that 79 percent of Republicans are likely to express outright racial prejudice, compared to 32 percent of Democrats
