Rep. Linda Chapa Lavia Calls Rep. John Anthony “Half” Black

Democrat State Rep Linda Chapa LaVia during today floor debate stated, “We have a half. We have a half.” in referring to Republican State Rep John Anthony, who is African American.  This was an absurdly racist comment by a Democrat Hispanic Representative.

UPDATE:
Rep Chapa LaVia is claiming the “We have a half” was taken out of context. Below is the transcript of that section of video so you can see the context.

    Hate-filled, irrational, racist Democrat trash projecting their racism onto others when their arguments fail to impress.

    Just another day in America.

    Like that “half” that’s in the White House, right Linda?

    Geeze. You know, if she had said “one” she may have gotten away with it, but she said “half”. Seriously.

    I also noted that she is a “White Hispanic”.

    And what is this context she thinks we’re missing?
