    Black Georgia lawmaker says white man told her to 'go back' to where she came from

    A black Georgia state lawmaker said a white man cursed at her in front of her young daughter and told her to "go back" to where she came from because he thought she had too many items in the express checkout line at a grocery store.

    Shocking headline, and story....Except that it is propaganda....

    Sparkes told Jennings he is a Democrat and of Cuban nationality and claimed Thomas was just accusing him to help her political career.
    "This woman is playing the victim for political purposes because she is a state legislator," Sparkes said. "I'm a Democrat and will vote Democrat for the rest of my life, so call me whatever you want to believe. For her political purposes, make it black, white, brown, whatever. It is untrue."

    Now, you can argue that NBC just had to rush to the headline, but I believe this is purposeful...It is a lie, and propaganda.

    The incident in Chicago involving that actor has helped make many Americans very cautious about believing similar claims.

    As we all know too well, human beings lie like a rug.

    The media has a narrative they want to push. New reports are coming out about this, and they are still failing to mention that the guy is both a democrat and Hispanic (from Cuba) that "would never support Trump or a republican" all while tying it back to Trump.

    This report was published just 30 minutes ago, well after both sides of the story are out, and not a mention of the guy's denial or background. Just parroting the dubious claims of the lawmaker:

    Absolutely right....We've also already seen at least one poster in this board use this story to bolster their claims that white, right wingers are all racist in another thread....So begins the repeating of the lie.

    "I called you a lazy (expletive)," Sparkes said to Thomas. "That's the worst thing I said."

    Sparkes sounds like a gem. Why are you automatically choosing to believe him, and before a video of the incident even has a chance to come out?

    This is all over the local news... another overblown interaction between two morons destine to be on television for all the wrong reasons.

    Clearly there are two sides to this story...tell me why NBC decided to rush out a one sided piece, with an inflammatory headline, if not to push the narrative that you, and others eat up without question?

    For the same reason we didn't believe Smollett ... long before the truth came out.

    When she then throws out the "maybe because I'm pregnant, maybe because I'm black".... you know what this woman is all about.

    Did I eat up the lawmaker’s story without question?

    You, meanwhile, are very confident that her story is a lie.
