Presidential hopeful Gov. Bobby Jindal caused a wave of blacklash after saying he was "done with" being labeled as an "Indian-American" in his presidential race announcement Wednesday.
In his campaign launch, Jindal told supporters he was against "hyphenated-Americans."
"And I'm done with all this talk about hyphenated Americans. We are not Indian-Americans, Irish – Americans, African– Americans, rich Americans, or poor Americans – we are all Americans," Jindal said in his speech Wednesday.
His statements sparked the hashtag #BobbyJindalIsSoWhite and a slew of tweets criticizing and supporting Jindal.
Here are some Tweets posted about Jindal's controversial statement:
Gosh, Bobby, lay off that Fair & Lovely. Can't even tell you're Indian anymore. #BobbyJindalIsSoWhite— meeta s ? (@ameetaks) June 25, 2015
