NC GOPer Resigns After Making Racist Comments On 'Daily Show' (VIDEO)

In an interview centered on North Carolina's voter ID law conducted by the Daily Show's Aasif Mandvi, Yelton criticized "lazy black people that wants the government to give them everything."

"The bottom line is the law is not racist," Yelton said.

"Of course the law isn't racist, and you're not racist," Mandvi responded.

"Well," Yelton paused. "I've been called a bigot before. Let me tell you something, you don't look like me but I think I've treated you the same as anybody else. As a matter of fact, one of my best friends is black. One of my best friends.

"When I was a young man you didn't call a black a black," he added later. "You called him a negro."

Wait until you can see the video, then, because it's almost surreal that the guy in question thought he could say what he did without repercussions!

Probably both. I have sprint and an iPhone so it's hard for me to watch videos too.

From the comments section of the article:

Why did this guy agree to an interview? Was he not aware of the programming? That's a stupid comment on my part. He's not aware of much of anything.
Foundryman
Some could say there are many southern whites who are not aware of anything...and not have to look to far for proof...
HugoPreuss
That has always struck me as the most incredible part: how on earth does the Daily Show keep these clowns agreeing to do these interviews? Is there no one in their immediate vicinity who knows how to use google and youtube? Or have they absolutely no understanding of sarcasm and irony? Are they plain stupid? Truly amazing. Political suicide by Daily Show.

All of the above.
