Playing the “race card” seems to have gotten a lot more bizarre lately when Democratic State Rep. Vanessa Summers accused an 18-month old toddler of racism. The dust-up came about during a heated debate over the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, when Summers suddenly accused her GOP debate opponent Rep. Jud McMillan, and his young son of “racism”, saying I love his little son, but he’s scared of me because of my color, and that’s horrible.”

 That comment immediately drew gasps from legislators on both sides of the aisle, however Summers wasn’t thru  just yet as she doubled down and exclaimed, “It’s true, and that’s something we are going to work on. I asked him please introduce your child to some people of color so he won’t live his life as a prejudice person. I would like for you all to not vote for this bill.”

And that’s perhaps why playing the ‘race card” seemed like a good political strategy for Rep. Summers turning the debate from religion into race. However in truth it really no longer matters, the sole purpose of Democratic and progressive activists is to divide people along whatever line possible. Ironically the bill that was being debated and signed into law by Republican Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, mirrors the federal law signed in the 90’s by President Clinton which simply allows for people of faith to allow the court to hear their grievance in matters that pose a moral dilemma based on their religious belief, that’s it.

Her foolish comments not withstanding Rep. Summers is a savvy politician and quite frankly a “race hustler” and while using a toddler to push her false accusations may in fact be despicable, it’s something however “race hustlers do, and do well. And what better way then to have an accommodating media to help you push the narrative telling The Indy Star; “He looked at me like I was a monster and turned around and cried. And I told him you need to introduce your child to some people who are dark-skinned so he will not be scared.”

And for whatever reason Rep. McMillan felt he had to respond “he reacts the same way he reacts with anybody brand new, he buries his head in his dad’s shoulder. Whoever it is, it’s what he does. He’s an 18-month-old kid; he’s in a new environment up here in the place like the Statehouse but doesn’t know anybody. I honestly don’t remember anything out of the ordinary.”
