Some of Kincannon's comments represented standard-issue racist stupidity, such as this “joke” he tweeted during the third quarter blackout that insulted both African Americans and the poor:
Republican talk show host and former Fox News star Glenn Beck soon called the Katrina evacuees "scumbags" and falsely accused them of sinking into an orgy of rape and murder at the Superdome while they awaited rescue. (See my earlier post at http://republicanracism.blogspot.com/2012/03/republican-racism-example-45-glenn-beck.html). This year, Kincannon revisited this theme. Like Beck, he apparently seeks vengeance on Katrina’s African American targets by mocking them, even more than seven years later. His memory of terrified and confused African Americans filling the Superdome’s seats inspired Kincannon’s sadistic quip about the Superdome being “dark” during the Super Bowl blackout just like it was after Katrina. This line is about as funny as a Holocaust joke. Kincannon's term “poors,” by the way, is apparently a new GOP slur aimed at underpaid workers. It frequently appears in Republican tweets and Facebook posts.

The fact that Martin was not violating any law at the time he was gunned down other than "walking while black" elicited no sympathy from Kincannon last Super Bowl Sunday, as indicated in another tweet:
