We can’t help but ask ourselves the same question. It seems like whenever Alabama State Rep. Alvin Holmes opens his mouth, pure crazy comes out.

Check out what happened yesterday during a debate over an anti-abortion bill:

Here’s the disgusting audio, via AL.com:

Partial transcript:

“Ninety-nine percent of the all of the white people in here are going to raise their hand that they are against abortion. On the other hand, 99 percent of the whites that are sitting in here now, if their daughter got pregnant by a black man, they are going to make their daughter have an abortion. They ain’t gonna let her have the baby.”

Charming.

That’s one explanation. A more likely one? He just can’t help being a racist jackass.

Congratulations, Rep. Holmes, on being sadly predictable.

Shame on him.
