Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore referred to Native Americans and Asians as “reds and yellows” while lamenting racial divisions between Americans during a campaign speech on Sunday.
“We were torn apart in the Civil War—brother against brother, North against South, party against party. What changed?” Moore said. “Now we have blacks and whites fighting, reds and yellows fighting, Democrats and Republicans fighting, men and women fighting. What’s going to unite us? What’s going to bring us back together? A president? A Congress? No. It’s going to be God.”
Moore, the former chief justice of Alabama’s Supreme Court will face off with incumbent interim Sen. Luther Strange in primary runoff next week for Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ Alabama seat.
Last week, Moore suggested that the 9/11 terrorist attacks were God’s way of punishing America for turning away from Biblical law.
Earlier this year, he offered praise for Russian President Vladimir Putin for his promoting laws that repress homosexuals, while at the same time attacking the United States for legalizing gay marriage.
