On Tuesday, The Indianapolis Star reported that GOP state Rep. Jim Lucas is under fire for a racist depiction of Black children in a Facebook post.
Lucas’ post depicted dancing African-American children above the caption, “We gon’ get free money!”
“Reached this morning on his cell phone, Lucas, R-Seymour, said he doesn’t see color and doesn’t believe his post was racist,” reported Chris Sikich.
Lucas also reportedly said the dialect in the caption is simply how he and others in the area talk, saying, “I don’t see anything wrong with it.
But this is not the first time Lucas has faced controversy over racist social media posts.
