Congressman Steve King recently argued that “Hispanics and the blacks will be fighting each other” before they take over the White people in America. His jaw-dropping statement was delivered on a radio interview with Iowa’s 1040 WHO. King mentioned comments about Multiculturalism in the U.S. that were made by Univision host Jorge Ramos:
“Jorge Ramos’ stock in trade is identifying and trying to drive wedges between race. Race and ethnicity, I should say to be more correct.”
“When you start accentuating the differences, then you start ending up with people THAT ARE at each other’s throats. And he’s adding up Hispanics and blacks into what he predicts will be in greater number than whites in America. I will predict that Hispanics and the blacks will be fighting each other before that happens.”
King has been labeled as one who often makes racist comments and has made multiple nationalist-influenced remarks recently. One of his more recent Tweets on Sunday argued that “we can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.” To make this even worse David Duke a white racist nationalist said on twitter:

The comment obviously went viral online and he received plenty of pushback from both political parties. But even with the pressure from both sides, King didn’t bring his statement down or apologize. Rather, King defended his Tweet in an interview saying he prefers America to be “so homogenous that we look a lot the same.”
Even for those who don’t like immigration, BLM, or any other issue facing America, this statement is quite harsh and rude. What do you think about his choice of words? Do you think he should be reprimanded for this type of statement? We want to know your thoughts!
