Cedric ‘BIG CED’ Thornton – Republicans invited a number of controversial speakers at this year’s Republican National Convention. One such speaker is pro-life advocate Abby Johnson, who spoke on Tuesday at the virtual event.
In a YouTube video discovered by Vice, Johnson made controversial statements regarding her biracial son, who she describes as a “perpetually tan-looking little brown boy.” She also said that it would be “smart” for a police officer to racially profile him, stating that “statistically, my brown son is more likely to commit a violent offense over my white sons.”
“I recognize that I’m gonna have to have a different conversation with Jude than I do with my brown-haired little Irish, very, very pale-skinned, white sons, as they grow up,” Johnson said in a 15-plus-minutes video posted in late June.
The mother of eight goes on to say that her biracial son will eventually grow into an “intimidating-looking brown man” in comparison to her white kids, who will “look like nerdy white guys.”
“Right now, Jude is an adorable, perpetually tan-looking little brown boy. But one day, he’s going to grow up and he’s going to be a tall, probably sort of large, intimidating-looking-maybe brown man. And my other boys are probably gonna look like nerdy white guys,” she said.”
