North Carolina congressman: Protesters In Charlotte ‘hate white people’

A congressman who represents North Carolina apologized Thursday for saying there are riots in Charlotte because the protesters “hate white people.”

“The grievance in their mind is that the animus, the anger — they hate white people, because white people are successful and they’re not,” Rep. Robert Pittenger, a Republican, said on the BBC’s “Newsnight.” “I mean, yes, it is, it is a welfare state. We have spent trillions of dollars on welfare, where we put people in bondage so that they cannot be all that they’re capable of being.”

Pittenger, who has represented North Carolina’s ninth congressional district since 2013, emphasized that people come to the United States for opportunities, not government handouts.

“America is a country of opportunity and freedom and liberty,” he said. “It didn’t become that way because of a great government who provided everything for everyone, no.”

Pittenger told CNN’s Don Lemon on “CNN Tonight” Thursday that he was repeating comments he’d heard from protesters.

“Frankly, I was quoting what they were saying last night on what I observed on your network. And their hatred for white people,” Pittenger said. “And that saddens me greatly.”

“You believe the protesters hate white people?” Lemon asked.

“No, no, sir. It’s the comment that they made. I think you can go back and look at the tapes. The comments that they made on air,” Pittenger responded.

“You mean the protesters made on air?” Lemon asked.

“Yes sir. I was only trying to convey what they were saying and yet, it didn’t come out right, and I apologize. I have many, many good friends in the African-American community,” he said.

Pittenger’s office also released a statement apologizing for comments, saying he didn’t mean to offend anyone. CNN
