Rep. Byron Donalds Defends Jim Crow Comments

Florida Republican Rep. Byron Donalds defended his controversial comments about the Jim Crow era, claiming he never said it was a better time for Black people.

Donalds' initial remarks, made at a campaign event in Philadelphia for former President Donald Trump, sparked outrage. He suggested that Black families were less fractured during Jim Crow and that more Black people voted conservatively then.

He clarified his statements on MSNBC's "The ReidOut," saying, "I never said that it was better for Black people in Jim Crow." He emphasized that he was solely discussing Black families and their structure during that period.

Donalds' comments drew criticism from Democrats, including members of the Congressional Black Caucus and House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries. The Biden-Harris campaign also condemned the remarks, accusing Trump of attempting to take America back to the Jim Crow era.

Donalds dismissed the criticism, calling it "lying" and "gaslighting." He maintained that he never said Black people were better off under Jim Crow.

The controversy highlights the ongoing debate about race and politics in America, with differing perspectives on the historical and contemporary experiences of Black communities.
