Ad supporting Arkansas Republican caricatures black women

A radio ad supporting an Arkansas Congressman seeking reelection features racist caricatures of black women and claims white Democrats will be “lynching black folk again.”

Two women featured in the ad, paid for by the Black Americans for the President’s Agenda political action committee, discuss the sexual assault allegations against U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and accuse Democrats of trying to change the presumption of innocence.

 The women speak in racist tropes and colloquialisms attached to black women.

“Honey I always told my son, don’t be messing around with that,” one women in the ad says, referring to white women. “If you get caught, she will cry rape.”

At the end of the ad, the women say they are voting for U.S. Rep. French Hill and the Republicans to protect “our men and boys” from white Democrats. The ad claims white Democrats want to go back to “race verdicts” and lynchings when a “white girl screams rape.”
