Paul Ryan’s black ex-girlfriend in college is garnering attention in the blogosphere.
The issue of Paul Ryan’s black ex-girlfriend is now a hot topic as race relations begin to take a growing role in the 2012 US election.
The controversy was triggered by the article on the website TheRoot.com titled “Does Paul Ryan’s Black Ex-Girlfriend Matter?”
Keli Goff, the writer of the article, is comparing Paul Ryan to CNN’s Lou Dobbs, who has a Mexican wife, and former Sen. Strom Thurmond, who fathered a daughter with a black servant.
“For the record: No, I am not calling Ryan a racist. I am saying, however, that if you want to know where a politician’s heart lies when it comes to a particular community, it may be best to look at that person’s policies — such as his or her record on civil rights – rather than personal relationships.”
Goff pointed out that she’s not labeling Goff as a racist, but she wants everyone to take a look at Paul Ryan’s policies rather than his personal relationships.
