Hate Hoax? Man Accused of Telling Liberal Democrat to “Go Back Where You Came From” is Lifelong Democrat and Cuban American

He didn’t tell her to “go back to where you came from” — He told her she was a b*tch!

State Rep. Erica Thomas told supporters a white man told her to “go back to where you came from.”
Thomas is an African-American Democrat.  She was at a Publix grocery store and was checking out at the express lane with too many items when the man confronted her.

Thomas posted a tearful video on social media following the confrontation.
She said the man told her to “go back where she came from.”
Of course, this story made headlines.

The accused man, Eric Sparkes, told a different story.

On Saturday Sparkes confronted Rep. Thomas and said she was lying.
He admitted to calling her a bitch instead.
He is a Democrat of Cuban descent.

On Saturday Sparkes told her to back off or he’ll call the police.

Eric Sparkes told Christian Jennings from Channel 2 he is a lifelong Democrat and of Cuban nationality.
