While awaiting the historic signing of a bill removing the Confederate flag from in front of the South Carolina legislature, CNN’s Jake Tapper revealed he thinks all Indian people look alike.

In fact, Tapper was so sure that “definitely-not-Nikki Haley” was the governor, that he interrupted his own sentence to announce her appearance on the floor.

For the record, here is the woman Tapper thought was Haley:

As a person of color, I find this super-duper offensive*.

If CNN allows this type of racial bigotry to go unchecked, then the “Emmanuel Nine” will have died in vain, and there’s really only one way to solve this egregious social injustice … #FireTapper.
