Salt Lake County Republican Party Chair Chad Bennion has come under fire (rightly so!) for asserting that Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill’s Indian heritage somehow prevents him from doing his job. Instead of apologizing for his blatantly racist accusation, Bennion has decided to stand by his comment.
Bennion obviously doesn’t get it. So, here are four quick tips (in order of their suggested use) for a racist. Listen up, Chad.
- Apologize profusely for your racist language and agree to avoid that kind of language in the future (Bonus: go the extra mile and meet with the group you’ve denigrated).
- Deny your comment was racist and instead chalk it up to a vocal flub.
- Accuse your listeners of being too sensitive and politically correct, insist they merely misunderstood you.
- Never, ever double-down on what you said.
