State Rep. Weaver Defends 'Aunt Jemima' Picture



On her Facebook page, freshman state Rep. Terri Lynn Weaver posted a Halloween picture of herself with her pastor posing in black face as Aunt Jemima. For a caption, Weaver wrote “Aunt Jemima, you is so sweet.” And she doesn't understand why anyone is offended. Says state Sen. Thelma Harper:

“She's supposed to be a leader, and this is what we have in the Legislature. I think this is one of the worst. I think this is as low as you can stoop."

Just how clueless is Weaver? Here's her reaction: “I'm the least racist of anyone. Some of my greatest friends are black."
