Race debate at CPAC descends into chaos after slavery slur

Panel designed to offer ways for GOP to connect with minority voters falls apart after provocative remarks from attendeeA discussion about race descended into chaos at CPAC on Friday when an attendee suggested slaves benefited from being given “food and shelter”.The provocatively titled session, “Trump the Race Card: Are You Sick and Tired of Being Called a Racist and You Know You’re Not One”, had been billed as offering a way for Republicans to counter suggestions of racism and win over minority voters.But it fell apart when two people at CPAC, the largest annual gathering of US conservatives, interjected from the floor and and made a series of extreme remarks.The session’s moderator, K Carl Smith, described himself as a “Frederick Douglass Republican”, an audience member interjected. “When Douglass came through slavery … he [wrote] a letter to his former slave master and said: ‘I forgive you for all the things you did to me’,” Smith said.From the floor, Scott Terry, pictured, asked: “For giving him shelter and food for all those years?”The comment drew gasps from the crowd, and Smith moved quickly to try and defuse the situation, using a microphone to drown out the protests of another audience member. The controversy overshadowed the rest of the session, a breakout panel from the main conference.
