Beto: It Is ‘No Longer Sufficient' For Americans 'Not To Be Racist’
Presidential candidate says it's only 'sufficient' to be 'Anti Racist'
2020 hopeful Beto O’Rourke said it was “no longer sufficient” for Americans “not to be racist” anymore; instead, he insisted they must be "anti-racist."
Speaking at his “Rally Against Fear” in Texas, Beto used 'racism' as the topic of choice.
"It's no longer sufficient for us not be racist," Beto declared to the crowd.
"Each one of us must commit to being anti-racist in America going forward."
"As we re-write this country's immigration laws, in our own image, legalizing America beginning with more than a million dreamers by making them US citizens in this, their home country."
"Deciding that racism in our criminal justice system is also racism in our economy, is also racism in healthcare, and is also racism in education in America."
Earlier this week, O'Rourke threatened to walk away from politics if his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination is unsuccessful.
The former Texas Democrat congressman, who currently getting crushed in the polls, warns he would not "run for public office again" should he fail in his pursuit to challenge President Donald Trump for the White House.
Beto revealed his future plans during an interview with Politico on Tuesday, telling the outlet that he “cannot fathom a scenario where I would run for public office again if I’m not the nominee.”
But this isn't the first time the progressive Texan has made such promises, as O’Rourke previously vowed to walk away from politics, only to later go back on his word.

On Thursday, Beto suggested that there would be no need for his government to forcibly confiscate guns from violent criminals, such as mass shooters because they will simply surrender their weapons willingly.
O'Rourke made the suggestion during a Wednesday CNN interview while discussing his proposed mandatory "buy-back" plan.
