The bar will always be higher for Republicans when it comes to racial issues, says Keli Goff, a political commentator and writer for The Root.com and Huffington Post.

"The standard is going to be tougher for Republicans no matter what you say," Goff told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.



"You're always going to be up against the party that ultimately elected a black man as president," she said Wednesday.

Goff said the GOP has had an "insane amount of foot-in-mouth disease that seems to have a lot to do with race" in the past year.

"I'm constantly on the phone with the National Republican Committee, where they're constantly sending me apology statements for me to publish . . . saying we don't support this latest yahoo."
