PBS NewsHour | Ala.'s Sen. Beason on Aborigines, 'the Clip' | PBS

Duration: 02:53
Program: PBS NewsHour #10186
Broadcast Date: Oct. 28, 2011

We asked Ala. state senator Scott Beason about some comments he made which some have called racist. In one, he referred to a casino's black patrons as 'aborigines'. He has since apologized. And at a party breakfast meeting earlier this year, Beason told Alabama Republicans to "empty the clip and do what has to be done," in order to address illegal immigration.
