Using the same logic that conservatives use regarding minorities, I have discover that this is, in fact, because white people are jerks.

Note that the Congressman was just repeating what he'd "heard". Quite a rash of people just saying what they heard.

Sure, that way they don't have to take the blame and consequences for originating a controversial statement, but can bask in the credit and attention of people who agree with the message.

"Hey, look, I never said I agreed with the guy, just letting people know what I heard..." Ohhhh, okay.
