GOP-endorsed congressional candidate used n-word in racist anti-Black rant on Facebook

Writer and GOP-backed House candidate Mike Cargile has frequently posted bigoted content on Facebook, including writing a racist rant in which he used the n-word and told Black people to “quit blaming white folks for your problems. Take your black ass out there and show them kids there’s a better way than husslin’ on the street.”

Cargile has also shared memes which questioned whether Muslim members of Congress are working with terrorists; stated that “2 illegal aliens having an anchor baby does not produce an American”; and suggested that LGBTQ people are leading to the end of days. (Cargile has shared his personal Facebook page on his campaign’s Facebook page.)*
