Holmes

What the f…?

Via The Blaze:

On Thursday, TheBlaze covered the story of Alvin Holmes, the Alabama state representative who offered to pay $100,000 in cash to anyone who could show him “a bunch of whites” who had adopted black babies in Alabama. TheBlaze also reported that a rally was held on Wednesday, demonstrating what Holmes did not believe existed — a large group of white and mixed-race families that had adopted children of color. […]

Holmes did not start his call to the radio show by talking about white families adopting black children. Instead, he attempted to focus the discussion on interracial marriage, claiming, “First of all, my statement, that I made was that the majority of white people in Alabama was against interracial marriage.”

The state representative said his belief is based on a November 2000 vote in which Alabama voters overturned a 100-year-old law that prohibited interracial marriage, but which Holmes claimed a “majority of whites” voted against. That 14-year-old vote is apparently what he’s still basing his opinions on today.

Holmes then followed his claims of racism among his state’s white population with something very bizarre about his own beliefs on marriage.

“Now, I’m for interracial marriage. I’m for same-sex marriage. I’m the one that introduced the bill to have same-sex marriage. I don’t care who marry who. If a man meet a little mule and he wanna get married to the little mule, as long as he and the little mule get along all right, that’s fine with me. It doesn’t bother me any kind of way.”
