“Former President Reagan in a newly unearthed tape disparaged “monkeys” from African countries during a phone call with then-President Nixon while Reagan was governor of California.

Reagan called Nixon in October 1971 — the day after a landmark United Nations vote to recognize the People’s Republic of China — and referenced how the Tanzanian delegation was dancing in the General Assembly after the vote, according to an audio clip of the exchange posted by The Atlantic.

“Last night, I tell you, to watch that thing on television as I did,” Reagan says.

“Yeah,” Nixon cuts in.

Reagan replies, laughing: “To see those, those monkeys from those African countries — damn them, they’re still uncomfortable wearing shoes!”

  1. New Tape Reveals Ronald Reagan Racial Slur

  2. To this day, Republicans still worship almighty Reagan……he was always a racist scumbag.
    I hope he’s roasting in hell.

  3. Sorry…who is this news to??

  4. Nothing to see here. Everyone Shits on everyone. You don't thing Africans(I'm African BTW) don't make fun of Europeans or westerns? Oh, honey. Imagine if you could understand what that Vietnamese lady in the nail salon, or Mexican day laborers were saying. It's human nature to talk shit.

  5. And in other news it turns out the sun is hot

  6. Isn’t it funny how you guys lie most of the time

  7. The War on Drugs was to target blacks and anti-war hippies.

  8. Yes, the real surprise is the way people act like they didn't know! The GOP has been racist!

  9. "Of course!!!!"

    Also breaking news…hollywood/media is not racist at all, not even a little bit.

  10. Reagan exploitation of racism and divisions wasn’t new to America. White Supremacists in the Democrats did it all the time early 1900s – wasn’t even 100 years after White Supremacists openly spouting when Reagan came along

  11. Allowing china in the UN was a huge mistake

  12. He's racist for joking about Africans? So who isn't racist anymore?

  13. Ramesh makes a great point about the personal and the policy going hand in hand and if you point that out, EVEN PROGRESSIVES will stupidly say you’re using “identity politics” 🤦‍♂️

  14. The guy pushed all sorts of shady sh*t during his potus stay. Iran/Contra, CIA drug smuggling, etc… And this is what was shocking about everything he did? Really?

  15. Carlton must be so heart broken right now.

  16. Yeah…And? This is supposed to be shocking? This is why I tell people that Trump isn't the first Trump. Trump is simply the first to be open with his crap.

  17. Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon is the reason why there was a war on drugs/war on black people. They purposely infiltrated crack and cocaine into the black communities during the late 70's and early 80's. Why are people acting surprised? Us black people been saying this for years including police brutality but yall still thinking that were lieing.

  18. Crack epidemic and drug wars man these guys know how to imprison people who df talks like that the rich assholes that right wingers love and support

  19. This isn't new. For as many years I can remember Republicans knew black people vote Democrat. Everything they've tried were attempts at minimizing the ability for blacks to vote. When hippies and blacks were protesting Viet Nam, it was pure genius to make out of whole cloth the drug "schedule" thing and put marijuana at the top of illegal substances. They also made another new law that prevents the incarcerated from voting (it was legal to vote in prison before then). Win by any means necessary, break any law that stands in our way.

  20. I actually laughed 🤣🤣

  21. Now you guys are attack presidents of the past, shows how you all hate america and how you dont belong

  22. And in other news water is wet.

  23. Ronald Racist. 🇺🇸💩🇺🇸🙄🇺🇸

  24. they are both in hell holding hands with george bush

  25. Who wants to bet that if I were to call Reagan a racist, republicans would accuse me of playing the race card? lol

  26. Not racist but conservative? No, conservatism is racism. it is entirely about exclusion and hate. What inclusive thing do conservatives, of any stripe, believe?

  27. I thought welfare queens meant farmers that are taking government money because they can't make their 20,000 year old business model work.

  28. Interesting, a RINO makes a racial slur 50 years ago and now it's "news"…..

  29. is it really "tan-ZANia" and not tanza-NEE-ya"?

  30. Racist Republican was racist? Wow… shocked here… 😑

  31. two white old men are racist ?? NO WAY

  32. Why did the guy bash Black Panther?
