FL Politician Ran a Race Baiting Ad
In January 2018 a Florida politician released a racist ad depicting the stalking and murder of a white woman by an undocumented immigrant. The ad is an example of race baiting, designed to stoke fear of immigrants. The suggestion that immigrants commit a disproportionate amount of crime is untrue, as multiple studies have revealed. This imagery unjustly marginalizes immigrants by depicting them as dangerous.
