An account on racism? Not for many GOP leaders
NEW YORK (AP) – While the nation is in the midst of a historic account of racism, most Republican Party leaders are not participating.
On the day last week that a jury convicted the policeman who killed George Floyd, Republicans in Washington focused much of their energy on convicting the oldest black woman in Congress. In the days that followed, former President Donald Trump attacked what he called the “racist rants” of basketball icon LeBron James. And some of Trump’s staunchest supporters on Capitol Hill are considering forming a new group that originally planned to defend “Anglo-Saxon political traditions.”
