Why a Bobby Jindal Portrait Sparked a Racial Controversy
“Who’s the white guy?”

Or so went the jokes of many Twitter users who saw a photo tweeted widely this week of Indian-American Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s purported “official portrait,” in which, well, he’s been whitewashed to the shade of Benedict Cumberbatch. It turned out it wasn't actually Jindal’s official portrait, and instead just a portrait loaned by a constituent, according to Jindal’s chief of staff, Kyle Plotkin, who shared on Twitter the actual painting (still with brightened skin, albeit less so) while slamming users for “race-baiting.”

Republicans are not focused on race and ethnicity like dems. Alan West, Herman Cain, Ben Carson, Bobby Jindal, Nikki Haley, Mia Love, etc

its you libs who make everything racial. We understand, its all you have because your libtardian policies have been massive failures and your hero obama has been a massive failure. Not because he is half black but because he is incompetent, arrogant, and narcissistic.

Wow, I guess he's ashamed of his heritage, how sad for him.

If you aren't focused on race, why the list of minority GOPers?

Here's a thought you imbecilic, knob-slurping, knee-pad wearing moronic sycophants that think everything some fucking 25 year-old J-School Columbia Graduate thinks is important actually IS important.......

Maybe the artist who did the painting SUCKS.....

Ever think of that of that?

Of course not, you're too stupid

Though we know its for politcal reasons this may be pretty close to the truth.


"Light skin in Europeans stems from a gene mutation from a single person who lived 10,000 years ago.

This is according to a new U.S. study that claims the colour is due to an ancient ancestor who lived somewhere between the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent.

Scientists made the discovery after identifying a key gene that contributes to lighter skin colour in Europeans.

He is as out of touch as ever too.

Heaven forbid he ever gain the WH.

I'd say he'd make a decent Senator though.
