GOP Senate Candidate Booed After Saying African Americans Beg For ‘Government Scraps’

Republican Senate candidate Chris McDaniel was booed by a crowd during a live taping of “Morning Joe” after saying that African-Americans have spent 100 years “begging for federal government scraps.”

The comment from the GOP nominee came during a segment of the MSNBC show taped at the University of Mississippi in Oxford on Friday.

Panelist Eddie Glaude Jr. asked McDaniel about his stance on the Confederate flag, saying that 38 percent of Mississippi residents are black while asking McDaniel how he would appeal to those voters and convince them “you are not a danger to them.”

“I’m going to ask them, after 100 years of relying on big government to save you, where are you today?” McDaniel said. “After 100 years of begging for federal government scraps, where are you today?”
