S.C. Pol Calls Haley, Obama 'Ragheads' - The Daily Beast
South Carolinians tired of being mocked for their state's political sex scandals can thank State Senator Jake Knotts for turning the conversation back to racism. The conservative lawmaker denounced the President Obama as well as GOP gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley as "ragheads” on an Internet radio show Thursday. "We've already got a raghead in the White House, we don't need another raghead in the governor's mansion," Knotts said. Haley's parents are Sikh immigrants from India (she converted to Christianity) and her campaign manager denounced Knotts as "an embarrassment to our state and to the Republican Party" and said he "represents all that is wrong with South Carolina politics."
