Coop There It Is: Roy Cooper Uses Racially-Charged, Derogatory Song To Sell T-Shirts

Press Release:

 Raleigh, N.C.     After Roy Cooper launched an online store with a t-shirt referencing the early '90s rap song "Whoomp! (There It Is)," the North Carolina Republican Party issued the following statement:

"If a Republican were to use this song with such derogatory and racially-charged lyrics to sell campaign t-shirts, the media would be up in arms and calling for their resignation. This shows poor taste and a lack of judgement on the part of Roy Cooper's campaign and they should pull the t-shirt from their store immediately." — Dallas Woodhouse, NCGOP Executive Director
