'Repulsive' Political Ad Shows Minority Kids Chased by White Man in Truck Flying Confederate Flag
Outrage erupted online after the Latino Victory Fund targeted Virginia’s Republican gubernatorial candidate Ed Gillespie in an inflammatory ad, showing a pickup truck with a Gillespie bumper sticker and a Confederate flag chasing down non-white children.
The ad, which was released on Monday, shows a group of minority children running as the truck pursues them. "Run, run, run!" one of the children shouts to the others.
Just as the children become trapped between a fence and the truck, they all wake up from what was actually a nightmare. "Is this what Donald Trump and Ed Gillespie mean by the American dream?" the narrator asks.
