Maybe on of the reasons Democrats are constantly accusing other people of racism is because they are assuming everyone is as racist as they are.
Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island belongs to a beach club that is ‘all white.’
Who knew such a thing even existed in 2021?
Go Local Providence News broke the story:
“It’s a Long Tradition in RI,” Whitehouse Defends Family’s Membership in All-White Club
U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse continues to defend his family’s membership in the all-white private Bailey’s Beach Club in Newport.
GoLocal interviewed Whitehouse on Friday in Pawtucket and when asked if the private club had admitted any minorities since GoLocal first raised the issue in 2017, Whitehouse said, “I think the people who are running the place are still working on that and I’m sorry it hasn’t happened yet.”
Both Whitehouse and his wife Sandra as well as their families have been members of the club for decades. Whitehouse did transfer his shares in the club to his wife years ago, and she is now one of the largest shareholders in the all-white club. The club’s membership is a who’s who Newport, Palm Beach, and New York wealth.
“It’s a long tradition in Rhode Island and there are many of them and I think we just need to work our way through the issues, thank you,” said Whitehouse as he was ushered away by a staffer.

Just amazing, isn’t it?
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse is a member of a whites-only beach club, the Gov of Virginia either wore black face or a Ku Klux Klan robe, and Joe Biden said he didn’t want his kids to grow up in a racial jungle. But Democrats want to lecture about racism in America…

Watch the media let this story fade away because he’s a Democrat.
