Galveston County Republican Party Chairwoman Yolanda Waters says her use of the N-word in a text message about fellow party member J.T. Edwards was simply a typo. Edwards, by pure coincidence, is black. The Galveston Daily News reports that "Waters complained about personal loans she and her husband had made to Edwards, and then followed her complaint about the money by calling Edwards a 'typical n**.'"
"I usually type very fast, and in this case, I moved too fast to see that the word was there," Waters told the paper. "I made the typo because I did not proofread my text."
The word was there. Like it spontaneously appeared in the text message without her typing it.
Again, there is no reason, no excuse and no room in our party for racist comments. The Galveston GOP Chairwoman should apologize to the respected member of the Texas SREC for using a racial slur to describe him. And she should resign as county chairman. https://t.co/BG0omQFLnC
