Republican mayoral candidate lists "WHITE" among reasons to vote for her

The North Carolina Republican Party has rebuked one of its mayoral candidates, Kimberley Paige Barnette, after she wrote “VOTE FOR ME! REPUBLICAN & SMART, WHITE, TRADITIONAL.” on her Facebook page.

Barnette, a former magistrate, has since removed and apologized for her remark, reports Jim Morrill with The Charlotte Observer. However, she then defended herself with this gem:

"There is a group called Congressional Black Caucus. I'm sorry if I described myself as white and it offended others."

If you're a person of color and you ever wondered why things didn't go your way in Mecklenburg County magistrate court, well, now you know why.
