Rand Paul Concedes Race For 2016 Republican Nomination
Rand Paul hasdone some opining about Ferguson, Missouri. It is some libertariany stuff you would expect about "big government" and militarizing the po-po and anyone who would give up liberty in the name of security deserves neither and hork hork hork what have you. But then Rand Paul starts talking about race, and not like he usually does, when he says the Civil Rights Act is some bullshit.
If I had been told to get out of the street as a teenager, there would have been a distinct possibility that I might have smarted off. But, I wouldn’t have expected to be shot. [...]
Anyone who thinks that race does not still, even if inadvertently, skew the application of criminal justice in this country is just not paying close enough attention. Our prisons are full of black and brown men and women who are serving inappropriately long and harsh sentences for non-violent mistakes in their youth.
Sorry, Rand Paul, you just said every mouth breather who is registered GOP isn't paying attention. You just called your folks dumb as fuck (we don't know how you manage to refrain from doing that every day) and put the lie to everyone on Fox who says any claim of racism is hustlin', race hustlin'. You go be president of Millennials now or whatever, but you're not gonna be president of the GOP :(
