Awwwwww, Newt cares!

The Huffington Post is reporting that while Newt Gingrich was Speaker of the House, he wrote the rough draft of a speech, which went a little something like this (via Think Progress):

For poor minorities, entrepreneurship in small business is the key to future wealth,” Gingrich wrote by hand in a first draft. “This is understood thoroughly by most of the Asians, partially by Latinos, and to a tragically small degree by much of the American black community.” [...]
By the time a member of Gingrich’s staff typed up the notes and prepared the speech for delivery at the National Review Institute, the racial stereotypes were gone.

See Black community! Newt doesn't hate you! He just thinks you are a little more inept than Asians and Latinos.
