August 28, 2012 – I Can Relate To Black People, My Ancestors Once Owned Slaves – Mitt Romney, US Presidential Candidate

US Republican Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney told a crowd of supporters during a speech that he can relate with black people because his ancestors once owned slaves.

Here is what Mitt Romney said while addressing a crowd in Prattville, Alabama:

I understand how difficult it can be for an African-American in today’s society. In fact, I can relate to black people very well indeed. My ancestors once owned slaves, and it is in my lineage to work closely with the black community. However, just because they were freed over a century ago doesn’t mean they can now be freeloaders. They need to be told to work hard, and the incentives just aren’t there for them anymore. When I’m president I plan to work closely with the black community to bring a sense of pride and work ethic back into view for them.

According to Freewoodpost report, even though this latest statement by Mitt Romney will undoubtedly be spun so that it will be seen as being taken out of context, someone needs to tell this man to just keep his mouth shut. So far, he has told citizens that he is friends with NASCAR owners, NFL owners, and now that he is related to slave owners. Stick to economic policy Mitt, that’s your strong point. Your history at Bain Capital speaks for itself.

The Romney campaign has yet to release its version of the speech made in Prattville.

    Blacks people should try and locate their origin, the guy is indirectly telling all blacks in foreign land. It remaind me of the late Bob Marley`s song “ANY WHERE YOU COME FROM NO MATER YOUR NATIONALITY AS FAR AS YOU`RE BLACK MAN YOU1RE AN AFRICAN”

    Seeeee the closer it get to election time God will reveal these snakes that we often support. Now NOT everyone is supporting this man but just to those that are. That was not necessary, (IT) the comment about African Americans has nothing to do do with the political and economical times we are going through. This is an alleged man of God who had to take it there. Really, Mitt? Truly your wanting this election to bad. What is your objective? That coming from a Wealthy WHITE man says something. And to join any one that says you are the Klan would Be MY PLEASURE. I still can't believe that you even said that. When you woke up this morning did you set out to destroy your chances at winning the election? SMDH! Just can't believe this……
