Dear 5849376,

Racist and sexist, even for a leading Republican

There are so many things wrong with what South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham just said that we don't even know where to start.

"If I get to be president, white men in male-only clubs are going to do great in my presidency."

That's what Senator Lindsey Graham actually told a male-only private club a few weeks ago in a shocking new audio clip leaked to CNN on Wednesday.1

Graham's campaign is trying to play his racist and sexist remarks off as a joke. But racism and sexism aren't funny. As the recent events in Ferguson, and what are now essentially Supreme Court endorsed efforts to block African American citizens from voting show, African Americans are very much under attack in America today. And the Republican War on Women in this country is getting worse, not better.

This isn't the first time Lindsey Graham has garnered national attention for his remarks on race. At the 2012 Republican National Convention, he famously bemoaned the fact that the Republican party was "not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term."2

Graham's recent comments were in the context of his presidential ambitions, but they also make it clear that he is unfit to serve in the United States Senate.

Tell Senator Graham: Senators must represent all their constituents, not just white men in male-only clubs. You must resign immediately and apologize to your constituents. Click here to sign the petition.

We're not going to stand for this. Thank you for standing up to hold Lindsey Graham accountable.
