"Don't be another UNEDUCATED BLACK" - Dr. Alma Arredondo Lynch, Republican running for the 23rd Congressional Seat.
Dr. Alman Arredondo Lynch, who according to her facebook account is a dentist and rancher from Uvalde, Texas, is challenging incumbent Representative Will Hurd for the 23rd congressional district of Texas. On January 8th she posted, "Don't be another UNEDUCATED BLACK" on her facebook account. The remark appears to be in response to a Will Hurd supporter.
She also appears to have stated, "HE GOT ELECTED BY WHITES AND TEJANOS, SO DONT GIVE ME YOUR ""BECAUSE HE IS BLACK""" ATTITUDE!!!"
When asked for comment on her remarks Dr. Lynch said "I'm just tired of turning the other cheek when you have them throwing out the race card. I am a minority, I've been called all sort of names under the hot Texas sun, but It never melted my resolve. I added more to the answer , read on." and then repeated the comment above. She followed this up by stating, "Viva Dralma2018, Viva President Trump, MCD23GA, MAGA". Screenshots of the messages are provided below.
