Sheila Jackson Lee (B.A. Yale; J.D. U of Va.) tells conservative bloggers to “shut up”, accusing them of playing racial politics” and then offers up these words of wisdom on Obama’s planned jobs bill, words that should certainly aid its passage whenever he and Congress get around to actually considering one.
“[B]uy American should be “buy African American.”
She also said that if Obama’s jobs bill is passed, that contractors who “do not look like” her need to make sure that if they get federal money, their workforce “better be reflective of those suffering double-digit unemployment.”
“I don’t consider it discrimination, I don’t consider it affirmative action,” she added.
