To be delivered to: Newt Gingrich, Republican Candidate for President, Rick Santorum, Republican Candidate for President, Mitt Romney, Republican Candidate for President, and Ron Paul, Republican Candidate for President
Whether it's Newt Gingrich's poverty "code" about janitors or Rick Santorum saying nothing while a racist Florida woman tried to delegitimize President Obama by calling him a "Muslim," Republicans have either used, or allowed to be used, the Birther movement, and other thinly veiled or openly racist statements to garner votes of white voters afraid of minorities. We want each candidate to make a public statement that they will disavow use of racism, racial code, and also take to task any event guest, support group like a SuperPAC, campaign staff, or party operative using race for political gain. These candidates want to be president of ALL of the people of the United States. They need to defend ALL of the citizens of this country, even during the day-in, day-out of their campaigns.
