Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene mentions ‘yellow people’ in speech about GOP diversity

  • Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene denounced claims that the GOP is a “white supremacist party” by calling out the “yellow people” at “AmericaFest” on Sunday.
  • “When I walked in yesterday, I was like, what kind of people come here?” she said. “So I’m walking around and seeing some good people, and I see white people, Black people, brown people, yellow people.”
  • George Takei responded with a tweet, saying: “Perhaps she meant 'yellow bellied people' because there are certainly lots in that crowd.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) attempted to prove the GOP is a diverse party by pointing to the “yellow people” and other people of color in attendance at Turning Point USA’s “AmericaFest” rally on Sunday.

“Yellow” is historically used as a racist slur to refer to people of Asian descent. The slur was used by Greene over the weekend during Sunday’s rally to denounce claims that the GOP is a “white supremacist party.”
