Jay Z, rapper, entrepreneur, record producer, is worth an estimated $520 million, according to Forbes, and Huckabee called this successful black man a “pimp” because Huckabee can only see Jay Z in the context of a street hustler. The good news is that Huckabee has zero chance of actually becoming President so we don’t have to worry about him hurling racial insults at black men from the Oval Office.

A recent CNN/ORC poll showed Huckabee tied for fourth place with Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, with 6% support in a hypothetical GOP horse race. Bush topped the list at 23%, followed by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 13% and neurosurgeon Ben Carson at 7%. Black Americans should be reminded of the Republican leaders who side with bigots — or who don’t denounce them.

Take Texas Gov. Rick Perry, the ultra-conservative Republican and potential presidential candidate who last year refused to condemn Cliven Bundy, the radical Nevada rancher who questioned whether the “Negro” was better off in slavery.

“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” Bundy said. “Because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom. Are they slaves to charities and government subsidized homes?” Bundy asked.

I get that Republicans can’t police every ill-advised thought uttered by ignorant GOP leaders and conservatives, but there’s a collective mentality of racial bias that permeates the GOP. They just can’t help themselves when it comes to making offensive statements directed toward African Americans. What do you think?
