Another Liberal has been found to be suffering with a chronic (and costly) condition of foot-in-mouth. Recently eating his words is State Rep. Alvin HoLmes after he offered $100,000 to any “all white” families that had adopted black children.
Needless to say, the families who had done just that lined up and demanded their checks. Proving that Liberal argument is nearsighted and lacks foresight, it seems that the Democratic politician isn’t going to hold true to his word – no surprise there.
One mother of such a family, Beverly Owens,expressed her outrage saying, “I would like for him to ‘man up.’ He’s made the statement. He needs to put his money where his mouth is.”
Other parents were upset with the damage HoLmes had inflicted by not thinking before opening his mouth. Owens proved this point further by mentioning, “After we work on it and work on it to have an elected official that can come in and make those comments and tear down everything that we’ve worked hard for. It puts a question in their minds of ‘Do I belong?’ ‘Where do I belong?’”
What do you guys think – should Homes have to pay up or was his offer hypothetical in nature? Let us know in a comment below.
