Chaz Proulx broke the story on Blue Hampshire. Former New Hampshire Republican Party chairman Jack Kimball sent an email around to protest President Obama’s visit to Durham tomorrow in which he writes, “‘It’ will be arriving at Oyster River High School in Durham, NH at 12:00 PM THIS MONDAY JUNE 25.”
I’ve seen the use of “it” when referring to black people before. It took me a while to remember where, but it finally came to me. I used to monitor the Northeast White Pride website just to see what the extreme right was doing. … Northeast White Pride commenters would not use personal pronouns to refer to black people. The word they always used was “it.” Draw your own conclusions about Jack Kimball. I’ve drawn mine.
