Blacks and Hispanics Are Outnumbering “Traditional” Population, Says GOP Candidate

On the one hand, Republicans tend to speak of a colorblind America, but on the other, they’re Thom Tillisquick to call out minorities as somehow less than authentically American.

Talking Points Memo unearthed a video of Republican U.S. Senate candidate from North Carolina, Thom Tillis, complaining that, unlike Hispanics and blacks, “traditional populations” weren’t growing.

During the 2012 interview, Tillis discussed minority outreach before veering into a racialized discussion on demographics. When asked why Hispanics don’t support the GOP more, Tillis said it had more to do with numbers than anything else.

“When you see all of these things that have transpired, what do you think about?” host Chris Williams asked.

“If you take a look, you mentioned the Hispanic population —the African American population, there’s a number of things that our party stands for that they embrace,” he said. “I think we have to do a better job of communicating it.”

Tillis then continued, adding that unlike the Hispanic or black populations, which are growing in numbers, the “traditional population of North Carolina and the United States is more or less stable.”

Although “traditional” is assumed to be synonymous with white, the lawmaker’s campaign disagrees with that definition.

“”Traditional” North Carolinians refers to North Carolinians who have been here for a few generations,” Tillis campaign Communications Director Daniel Keylin told TPM. “A lot of the state’s recent population growth is from people who move from other states to live, work, and settle down in North Carolina. Thom Tillis for example.”

  2. The USA is NOT all White anymore, as a matter of fact it truly never was, his people came from Europe, This land belonged to the Native American Indian, his people stole their land and put them on reservations. Tillis welcome to Karma! If you are such a great Christian, our Father told us those that were last shall be first, etc.

  3. Those that were last shall be first. Just like how the Israelites were out numbering the Egyptians even though they were in bondage.They are inferior in every sense of the word from their colored eyes, blond hair, non melanin skin, biological clock done early. Smelling like dogs when wet. There is a reason why they are afraid of the black God’s. It’s all good their rulership is coming to an end. All praises to Ahaya Asher Ahaya, Yashaya
