Two significant stories out of conservative hotbeds. (1) Jake Knotts | Haley Raghead | South Carolina Raghead | Mediaite First, Knotts called Haley (a Christian who is of Sikh descent) a âf**king raghead.â When the stunned hosts of the show, Senate Republican Caucus political director Wesley Donehue and Senate Democratic Caucus political director Phil Bailey, asked him to clarify, he apologizedâŠfor using the F word. ... âWe got a raghead in Washington; we donât need one in South Carolina,â (State Senator) Knotts said more than once. âSheâs a raghead thatâs ashamed of her religion trying to hid it behind being Methodist for political reasons.ââ ... âWe need a good Christian to be our governor,â he said. âSheâs hiding her religion. She ought to be proud of it. Iâm proud of my god.â (2) Altered mural fuels racial debate in Prescott (Arizona) A group of artists has been asked to lighten the faces of children depicted in a giant public mural at a Prescott school. The project's leader says he was ordered to lighten the skin tone after complaints about the children's ethnicity. But the school's principal says the request was only to fix shading and had nothing to do with political pressure.
