Arizona Lawmaker David Stringer Claims Black People Don’t ‘Blend In’ With Society

Reporting on the story, Slate notes:

An Arizona state politician recently re-elected to office despite a history of racist remarks is once again fending off calls from his own party to resign after audio recordings surfaced of him telling students that black immigrants are more of a burden on society than white immigrants because “they don’t blend in. They always look different.”

Republican state Rep. David Stringer, who made the remarks last month to a group of Arizona State University students quietly recording him after a lecture, told the students that “racial tension” and multiculturalism made institutions like the military and the education system weaker and that immigration should be capped to “create more opportunity for assimilation, so it’s not too much too fast.”

The following is an excerpt from the recorded conversation:

David Stringer: Also, diversity in our country is relatively new.

Unknown Student: What do you mean? Irish and Italian—my great-grandfather …

David Stringer: They were all Europeans. By the second or third generation, everybody looks the same. Everybody talks the same, but that’s not the case with African Americans or other racial groups because they don’t melt in. They don’t blend in. They always look different.

Unknown Student: Why does looking different matter?David Stringer: I don’t know. And maybe it doesn’t. It doesn’t to you. Maybe it doesn’t to a lot of people. But it seems to matter to a lot of people who move out of Detroit, who move out of Baltimore—you know, we have white flight in this country.

  1. Before people like him came. Before the europeans. We didn’t all look the same, believe the same, or act the same. Before people like him there was no war, no crime, no hunger, no famine. The buffalo were plenty, our women naked without fear of rape, our people diverse and yet we got along.

    Maybe it’s he and those who believe like him who need to be expelled?

    People like this make my damn blood boil!

    Grrrrrrrr
    But people like you make me smile….hugs
