Neither Steve King nor the Republican Party as a whole have advocated for racist policies in the last 40 or so years.

They have never advocated for discriminating against non-white citizens on the basis of race.

In fact, many members of the Republican Party have acquiesced to supporting affirmative action, which actively discriminates against whites in favor of non-whites, at almost no benefit to the Republican Party.

Beyond just policy, in terms of tone, the Republican Party is groveling in terms of how it talks to minorities, how it begs them to like them. Look at how Trump always talks about the Black unemployment rate and the Hispanic unemployment rate but never the white unemployment rate.

What exactly does Tim Scott want the Republicans do to combat racism more?
