West Virginia Lawmaker N-Tapped Lil' Wayne!

Saria Blair sings the blues. State lawmaker caught on camera saying racial slurs while rapping to Lil' Wayne.

A state delegate from West Virginia is in hot water after someone unearth her old social media posts. The delegate is 21 years old and is a Republican.

Her love for hip-hop makes it head scratching.

Saria Blair is facing a backlash after she was caught on camera singing Lil' Wayne's single Gonorrhea.

It was filmed on Snapchat.

Well she announced that she will no longer seek reelection.

When she won her election, she remarked about the use of the word. The folks at HuffPost added this.

In a December 2014 interview with the Charleston Gazette-Mail, Blair said she believed Americans are “past the point of looking at things from a racial perspective” and that talking about “racial tendencies” creates further division.

“The issue of race is never going to go away unless we stop talking about the issue of race and stop saying black power, white power, Hispanic power,” Blair told the Gazette. “As long as we keep creating that division it’s not going to be solved... I think harping on the racial issues, the racial tendencies, that enhances them.”
Lil' Tunechi aka Lil' Wayne.
Blair made history in November 2014 when she defeated a two-term incumbent delegate at the age of 18 to become the youngest elected legislator in U.S. history. Blair’s father, Craig Blair, is a Republican state senator in West Virginia and served as her 2014 campaign manager. On top of her legislative duties, she is currently studying economics and Spanish at West Virginia University.

Last week, the 21-year-old lawmaker was the only person in the West Virginia House of Delegates to vote against House Bill 4145, which sought to increase teachers’ pay by 5 percent. Public schools across West Virginia were closed for nearly two weeks as thousands of teachers went on strike to demand higher pay and lower health care premiums. 

“We’ve already voted out a pay raise, one that was fair and within our budget,” Blair told West Virginia News last Wednesday about her no vote.

This is what the Republican Party is. They have a party of idiots, morons, climate change deniers, anti-Black, anti-Latino, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBTQ, anti-Muslim, anti-choice, anti-gun control and are stuck on Reagan.

Now as the party of Donald J. Trump, the party embraces extremism.
