Thanks to Minnesota GOP State Rep. Pat Garofalo, “I’m Not a Racist But” is currently trending on Twitter. Last night @PatGarofalo tweeted:
@PatGarofalo: Let’s be honest, 70% of teams in the NBA would fold tomorrow + nobody would notice a difference w/ possible exception of increase in streetcrime.
Garofalo says that he is known for his “controversial” tweets, but he is not racist. “I woke up this morning and I had thousands of notifications from people who appeared to be black so I knew something was wrong.
In response to the racism allegations, the representative sent out the following tweets today:
@PatGarofalo: My NBA tweet was wrong. I’m sorry. I should know better. Street crime is actually 2 words & not one. Im not racist but having a black neighbor has messed w/ my grammar
@PatGarofalo: I hope ppl can learn from my tweet. I hope all states will realize that ppl actually care what state reps have to say. Reps rule! Senators drool! #soThere
@PatGarofalo: It doesn’t matter what my tweet says. It only matters how many retweets it got. 1,769! Are you f*cking kidding me!?! #NewRecordBitches
@PatGarofalo: People are forgetting that there are white NBA players too!!! Maybe I’m talking about them. I’m not, but I maybe I am.
@PatGarofalo: U may not know this but I’m a stand-up comic. And my tweet killed at the LOL Larry’s open mic. Here’s one I’m trying 2nite: I named my penis “the truth” cuz bitches can’t handle it. #BOOM
Not everyone thinks Rep Garofalo is racist. Many are actually sharing their racist thoughts via Twitter as well.
Here are some of the top tweets:
