A Republican consultant was let go after complaining about white privilege on Facebook.Regina Roundtree

Regina V. Ross Roundtree was fired after bringing up the white privilege of her employer’s opponent. Roundtree was working for Penny Bacchiochi, a Republican candidate for  Connecticut lieutenant governor, when she criticized political rival Heather Bond Somers.

“People think what they think, but help the party out and don’t plaster your complete sense of privilege,” Roundtree wrote, according to The Hartford Courant. “This is an example of what is sometimes phrased as ‘white privilege.’ The way Heather [Bond Somers] talks. The arrogance and belittlement of Penny’s and her family’s feelings or any other person who has experienced racism. Our feelings or the fact that we may say something is an embarrassment to the party.”

Somers got wind of the comments and called on Bacchiochi to address the issue.

“[W]hile a Republican primary may become very heated over the discussion of a candidate’s record and vision there is no place for the personal, divisive and defamatory assertions which are becoming common from the Bacchiochi camp. The Heather Somers campaign calls on Bacchiochi to immediately disavow herself of these divisive comments which have no place in the Republican Party or in public discourse,” read a statement from Somers’ campaign.

Bacchiochi responded to the pressure by calling the comments “unacceptable” and continued, saying, “The campaign had no prior knowledge of the statements attributed to her that were made on a third party social media web site. The campaign has severed all ties with Ms. Roundtree.”

Bacchiochi, whose husband and four step-sons are African-American, has been accused of playing the race card during the campaign.

    Why do white people get so up in arms when called on their shit. If your walking around like white privilege is not real and racism is a thing of the past because we have a black man in the White House you are delusional!

    Ms. Roundtree said nothing that is not true. White folks walks around with an arrogant about themselves. They have been doing it so long until they can not see it. That is one reason why they are so down on the President, how dare he a black man be head of THEY Country . We have to take our country back. Firing Ms. Roundtree for speaking the truth shows how inclusive the Republicans really are.

    It goes to show it don’t matter what your education level is or your political party or whether you marry a black man or marry a black woman there is and always be a special privilege for certain races and since it’s been going on for hundreds if years especially since there is a black president racism and hatred is at a all time high the way some was in the movie 42 is the same mentality some still garner ,so we see switching parties don’t change mentalities it actually encourage other when they can demoralize certain people and still get their support like it don’t matter .
