“Trump’ comments on Africans as lazy fools, only good for lovemaking is racism” – Sen. Gershom Bassey

Sen. Gershom Bassey (PDP Cross River South) on Friday, said the condemnation of Africans and African-Americans by a US presidential aspirant, Donald Trump, was a crude form of racism.

Bassey, who was reacting to media reports credited to the Republican Party man, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja that racism should never be mixed with politics, adding that politicians should not be bigots.

“What I can say generally it that it is bigotry, racism and all that, in all forms must be condemned and we shouldn’t use that in politics.

“If we have issues with people we should stick to the issues and leave all these sweeping statements about different races and all that.

“It is the crudest form of racism and I think if Donald Trump did actually say that, he should find a way to retract that statement, otherwise, he will find that at the end of the day, it will come back to haunt him,” he said.

The media reports said that Trump referred to Africans as lazy fools, only good for lovemaking and thuggery.

The report also credited him as saying that if he became U.S president, he would deport all African-Americans to their countries in Africa.
