Hakeem Jeffries blasts Byron Donalds for his ignorant Jim Crow remarks

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) blasted Rep. Byron Donalds (R-Fla.) for Donald's inflammatory comments Donalds made regarding Black families' quality of life during Jim Crow-era racial segregation.

Here is what Donalds said:

“One of the things that’s actually happening in our culture that you’re now starting to see in our politics is the reinvigoration of Black family with younger Black men and Black women, and that is also helping to breathe the revival of a Black middle class in America,” Donalds said. “You see, during Jim Crow, the Black family was together. During Jim Crow, more Black people were not just conservative — Black people have always been conservative-minded — but more Black people voted conservatively. And then H.E.W., Lyndon Johnson — you go down that road, and now we are where we are.”
