Twitter Rips Gorka’s ‘Black African’ Crime Comment: ‘White Nationalism on Display’

Former White House adviser Sebastian Gorka is drawing quite a bit of attentions over his recent remarks about “black African crime.”

Gorka appeared on a Sinclair town hall on guns, and he called for expanded police action in order to deal with “black African gun crime against black Africans.” He made this point by pointing to Chicago and other Democrat-run cities where black people are killing each other “by the bushel.”

The panel prompted Gorka to clarify that he was referring to “African Americans,” though he’s still turning a few heads for how he originally described “black Africans” with respect to an epidemic of violence. As such, plenty of blue-checked Twitter users, including “Black Africans,” have some thoughts about the racial connotations of Gorka’s words.
