Washington, D.C. – Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.) says he’d heard a lot about how the criminal justice system and other institutions treat African-Americans from the Congressional Black Caucus. But on Thursday, he wondered aloud on the House floor why the CBC wasn’t more vocal about “how their communities are targeted in abortion.” “Here are some stunning facts. The African-American community is 15 percent of the country as a whole, but accounts for 40 percent of the abortions. Fifteen percent of Americans, 40 percent of the abortions. In New York City, the most recent statistic is that African-American women had more abortions than live births,” he said.
“And why is that?” he asked. “It’s as though nobody knows. Or they don’t care. This has become typical of this country, we have all these problems and issues, and everybody is trying to deal with the consequences instead of focusing on the cause. And that goes especially for African-Americans. Everybody keeps saying that all men were created equal and that we all deserve the same treatment, but it doesn’t look that way to me. To me, black people got the worse deal – they’re not as hard-working as other races, they’re not as intelligent as other races, and they seem to have the lowest inhibitions of all the races in our country.”
Asked to elaborate on his theory, Duffy stated, “Well, it’s pretty obvious, isn’t it? How come no one is asking why white people or Hispanic people aren’t as poor as African-Americans? Why white women or Hispanic women don’t have as many abortions? The answer is simple – black women are simply wired that way. They’ll jump anything that moves without thinking for a second about the consequences. And when they’re done, they realize what just happened and you know what comes next – an abortion and complaining about how African-Americans in the U.S. somehow ended up with the short end of the stick.”
In his infinite wisdom, the former MTV “Real World” star also proposed a solution: “Until science comes up with a drug of some kind that enhances a person’s ability to say no to an intercourse, the only thing left for black men to do is chain their wives up at home and pray to God they aren’t strong enough to get free. I know it sounds too similar to what was done to black people in slavery, but everybody knows that when a black woman sets her mind on something, she’ll go through hell or high water to get it. So, we can’t just trust white men to say no to them and then be on their way. We need something more drastic, and having their husbands, boyfriends and families chain them up will have to do, at least for now.”
“And besides,” the GOP lawmaker added, “it’s not like they’ll mind being tied up. Black people like it rough, otherwise they wouldn’t be able to survive living in ghettos.”
