Wealthy ‘Lucas Oil’ Founder’s Facebook Rant: ‘I’m Sick And Tired of Minorities Running Our Country’

A Facebook post written by Charlotte Lucas, the wife of Lucas Oil founder in Indianapolis, displays disparaging remarks about minorities. Mrs. Lucas is “sick and tired of minorities…”
Lucas claims minorities are “running the country,”  however, her oppressed white husband Forrest has a net worth of $300 million and their company brings in an annual revenue of $150 million, according to Addicting Info.


Charlotte has had it, dammit! Won’t you please “fight back” for her gazillions of dollars?
Charlotte and her husband live in a sprawling 25,000 square foot home. To put that in perspective, I live in a 1,300 square foot home which has 3 bedrooms. So, the poor beaten down couple is really living in a modest home which is about 10 times the size of mine. I  live in one of those “minority” neighborhoods which according to her, is full of residents who are “running our country”.
The 33.6 acres where the Lucases reside, include an infinity swimming pool with a cascading waterfall and five buildings. Their estate has been the site of community benefits such as the Young Presidents Organization with guest speaker former President George W. Bush. Their home houses a 60-spot parking lot.
In total, they own five residences so they’re really just scraping by.
Charlotte whitesplained her Facebook post to RTV 6“I was very upset when I wrote that,” she said. “I will not elaborate other than to say that there are certain people who are trying to make the whole world eat what they want to eat and do what they want to do. I don’t think it’s any of their business what I put in my mouth. Thank you.”
Whatever that means.

Rep. Cummings: Blacks Worried Secret Service Is Racist

Congressman Elijah Cummings spoke on “Face the Nation” of his concerns about how African-Americans view the Secret Service now.
“Eighty-five percent of all African-Americans that come to me mention [this fear], and I don’t agree with it,” said Cummings, who was vocal about the need for former Director Julia Pierson to resign.
“We have information that this goes all the way back to the Bush administration, a lot of the problems that we’re talking about now. It’s just that they’re coming to light. So a lot of these things existed before President Obama.”
“The president’s people have told me that he feels very comfortable,” Cummings said. “He feels good about it, and most importantly the First Lady feels good about it.
