The co-founder of Lucas Oil, a Corona, California-based oil products company with annual revenues in excess of $150 million, took to her Facebook page this week, complaining that she is “sick and tired of minorities running our country.”

Charlotte Lucas, who founded Lucas Oil with her husband Forrest Lucas in 1989 and now calls Indianapolis their home, called out atheists and Muslims as the main targets of her ire, reports RTV6.

In a posting on her now-deleted Facebook page Lucas wrote, “I’m sick and tired of minorities running our country! As far as I’m concerned, I don’t think that atheists (minority), muslims [sic] (minority) nor any other minority group has the right to tell the majority of the people in the United States what they can and cannot do here. Is everyone so scared that they can’t fight back for what is right or wrong with his country?”

Contacted by RTV6 about her comments, Lucas told reporter Rafael Sanchez, that she did write the post and was not interested in discussing it, although she did briefly comment upon it.

“I was very upset when I wrote that,” she said. “I will not elaborate other than to say that there are certain people who are trying to make the whole world eat what they want to eat and do what they want to do. I don’t think it’s any of their business what I put in my mouth. Thank you.”

The Lucas family is very well known in the Indianapolis community for their philanthropy, with the family name adorning the stadium where the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts play their games.

Lucas Oil paid $122 million in 2012 for a 20-year contract for the naming rights to the stadium.

The first lady posted the video Thursday morning on her Twitter account, after President Donald Trump interrupted Joe Biden to attack his son's struggles with substance abuse and Donald Trump Jr. called Hunter Biden a "crackhead."

‘Discrimination exists’: Rep. Al Green fires back after C-SPAN caller lectures about ‘pimps and gangbangers’

Published

Texas Congressman Al Green (D) on Thursday responded to a man from North Carolina who lectured him about the threat of "pimps and gangbangers."

During a discussion about systemic racism on C-SPAN's Washington Journal program, a Republican named Terry called in from North Carolina.

"You're the person I really want to talk [to] about this," Terry said. "I want to use my city of Asheville, NC as a starting block. It's not racism that the children here in Lee-Walker Heights have to get up every morning and walk out to the school bus and step across dirty hypodermics and used condoms. It's not racism that the children in Hill Crest that get up and go out this morning that have to deal with the winos, the crackheads and the heroin dealers. It's not racism that the children that get up and walk to school have to deal with the hookers, the pimps and the gangbangers."

Conservative begs Mike Pence to be more of an adult than Trump in VP debate

Published

on

The bad news is there's another debate coming up next week. The good news, however, is that President Donald Trump won't be there, noted conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin in her Thursday column.

Writing in the Washington Post, Rubin celebrated a momentary return to normalcy, anticipating that Vice President Mike Pence won't randomly start screaming over Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) and turn the debate into a circus.

What won't change, she noted is the lies. If Pence's 2016 debate is any indication, Pence isn't afraid to spread Trump's lies, even if they're obvious.
