Ted Cruz’s radio buddy blames blacks for racism: ‘Black people are obsessed with white people’

Published

on

A conservative radio host linked to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said white people only make racist comments when they see black people.

Michael Berry, a former Houston city councilman and the husband of a former Texas secretary of state, told a black caller on his syndicated radio program that white people try to avoid black people as much as possible, reported Media Matters.

“The fact is, most white people — not all white people – most white people would like to get as far from black people as they possibly could and never have to see another black person, and never have to deal with black-people issues, never need to talk about black people,” Berry told the caller.

The syndicated radio host is known for his racially charged remarks and for a regular segment on his program devoted to mocking the victims of gun violence.

Berry, who introduced longtime friend Cruz at his 2012 U.S. Senate primary victory party and has frequently hosts the Republican presidential candidate on his show, said white people rarely even think about black people.

“I’m telling you that if white people are not around black people, they literally never talk about them,” Berry said. “I’ve spent time with both groups and I’ll tell you that black people are obsessed with white people and white people simply want to get away.”

“White people go on snow skiing trips to Utah and Colorado and they never see a black person and they don’t stand around going, ‘Boy, I tell you what, them black people lazy! They lazy and they violent and they try’n a get our womens!'” Berry said.

Berry, who reached a settlement in connection with a hit-and-run crash he was involved in outside a gay bar, said black people make white people racist.

“The only time white people talk about black people is because black people cannot let them go, they can’t,” he said. “Black people don’t know how to exist without white people around to blame their problems on.”

Berry — whose Indian-American wife, Nandita Venkateswaran Berry, was appointed as secretary of state by former Gov. Rick Perry — suggested white people should be honored and thanked for their contributions to society with a “white history month.”

“White people are naturally excited about ‘White History Month,’ but they’re probably not going to mention it publicly, unfortunately, because they don’t know who all knows and they don’t want to seem self-centered or too absorbed, narcissistic,” Berry said.

He said non-white people should approach whites and thank them by wishing them a “happy white history month.”

“Over the course of the coming month, we will assist those of you who are not white in how best to celebrate,” Berry said. “It’s like a Jewish holiday. It’s happening all around you but you’re really not sure why, you don’t quite know the history and ‘what is this Seder stuff and Passover and what does all this mean?’ We’re here to help you and to celebrate. And to all of — some of you out there are white, to all of you we offer you our heartfelt greetings, ‘Happy White History Month.'”

Published

The 2020 reelection kickoff rally is being held in Orlando, Florida and campaign operations chief Michael Glassner says the "historic" event "has already generated tens of thousands of ticketing requests."

There's little mystery about how the night will go down.

Expect Trump, the self-promoting hero of his ghost-written book "The Art of the Deal," to claim the US economy is richer, the military stronger, and the country more respected than ever in history.
