Mecklenburg County Republican Committee Felt These Racist Photos Were Appropriate... Until National Attention Arrived

Following the Washington Post's breaking news of racist photos posted by the Mecklenburg County VA GOP on Facebook - offensively targeting President Obama - outrage has spread across the Commonwealth and into the national spotlight. Last night, on the same day the story broke, the Rev. Al Sharpton covered the offensive photos on his MSNBC show PoliticsNation and numerous other newspapers across the country picked up the story.
 

After receiving a call from the Post about the photos, The Chairman of the Mecklenburg County Republican Committee, R. Wallace "Wally" Hudson said:

 

                       "If that group is that sensitive, I'm sorry, they're just not human," he said chuckling.  "It's not American.  If they've got a problem with it, we're not going to change what we do."

 

Apparently the state GOP had a problem with it also because today, following this attention, it appears as though the Mecklenburg County Republican Party has taken down their Facebook page entirely.
