States’ Rights = Racism?
I’m so sick of hearing this. How many things can you name that were once supported primarily by racists? How about: abortion, religion, the war on drugs? Is everything that was ever supported by a racist person inherently racist itself?
Is this just a really clever way of avoiding real debate?
What about the inherently racist federal laws like Coke vs Crack and using HUD to marginalize minorities? Are medical marijuana advocates in California all racist because they want their state to have power to regulate the law?
Does anyone else realize the absurdity/emptiness of the accusation?
I understand that Mike O, but how does it justify the accusation today, when the federal government is the major perpetrator of racist law?
Anyone out there who can defend this logic?
