J.C. Watts on the GOP & diversity: “if it’s good for God, it ought to be good for Republicans”

Tonight on OutFront, CNN’s Erin Burnett spoke to former Republican congressman J.C .Watts about members of his party urging him to run for chairman of the party and the GOP’s issues with diversity.  In the interview Watts said he takes a “Biblical worldview on diversity.  God made you white, he made me black, he made you a female, he made me a male.  I think God likes diversity.So, if it’s good for God, it ought to be good for Republicans.”

On Reince Piebus’ leadership, he went on to say “if I don’t know the chairman of the Republican National Committee, I have no confidence that he has an relationship with chuck roast black guy, with bill fold working white guy, with — with Joe six pack Hispanic, if I don’t know him.”
