Rep. Jason Lewis (R-MN) once claimed on his talk radio show that African-Americans have an “entitlement mentality” and warned that a “racial war” was brewing because “violence regularly occurs at black gatherings.” CNN’s KFile reports that during a 2012 broadcast of the “The Jason Lewis Show,” which ran from 2009 until 2014, the congressmen insisted that the “entitlement mentality” was a “cultural problem in the African-American community.” He also said that black people are “addicted” to government welfare programs, causing “unwanted pregnancy, illegitimacy” and broken families. In another broadcast, Lewis claimed there was an increase in black-on-white violence, saying white people are the “real victims of most racial violence.” This comes after the congressman’s comments on not being able to call women “sluts” surfaced in another CNN report.
