    NY GOPer resigns after being racist on Daily Show interview

    A North Carolina county precinct GOP chair resigned under pressure for, well, saying what was really on his mind during a racist interview on Comedy Central's The Daily Show.

    Nathan West, a spokesman for the Buncombe County Republican Party, confirmed Don Yelton's resignation, and acknowledged that it was indeed in direct response to the interview, Business Insider reports.

    The interview, which aired Wednesday and was conducted by correspondent Aasif Mandvi, was about North Carolina's voter-ID law, which has prompted a lawsuit by the Justice Department. Yelton told Mandvi that he doesn't consider the law to be racist, "though he has been called a bigot."

    Yelton brushed back such criticism, saying that one of his best friends is black. While tossing around the n-word, he criticized blacks for using it themselves. He also said that "lazy black people" want "the government to give them everything."

    The second best part of the interview was right before Yelton was about to drop the tried and true "one of my best friends is black" Aasif gives a knowing glance and slight eyebrow raise to the camera.  

    But the best part was following Yelton's bizarre rambling about why he can't use the N-word, what blacks used to be called (negra!) Aasif looks at him and asks "you know we can hear you right?"

    Oh, and the GOper in question is from NC, but I am guessing that was just a typo in the thread title.

    So the voter laws are to prevent lazy people from going out of their way and voting twice?
