Black man with NRA bumper sticker and driving a BMW baffles activist who ignites tweet storm
FOX NEWS reports:
An activist author ignited a social media firestorm on Thursday after saying she was left “very confused” seeing a black man with a pro-NRA and Tea Party bumper-sticker on his car.
Kimberley Johnson, a feminist contributor to HuffPost and the spokeswoman for the national advocacy group We Are Woman, was slammed for questioning why a black person would not embrace progressive politics.
“Out on the road the other day I saw an affluent black man driving a BMW with two bumper-stickers. One was pro-NRA and the other one was a Tea Party sticker that read, ‘Don't tread on me,’” she wrote in a now-deleted tweet. “This left me very confused.”
She was immediately condemned, with most social media users accusing her of racism. “It's not confusing to people who don't judge others based on their skin tone. You should try it,” wrote user.
“One of the most racist things ever are people who think black people MUST all think alike and vote for the same party,” tweeted journalist Jason Howerton.
