Republican Legislator Promotes Racist Views on Drugs

He Must Love Justice Thomas's Rant to Support Racist Juror

This Forum reported on how Justice Thomas seemed to not only tolerate but to excuse a racist juror who voted to sentence an African American defendant to death.  Now we have a Kansas legislator promoting a racist views on drug usage.

"Attempting to explain at a weekend legislative coffee session with constituents why “all drugs” were outlawed in the United States in the 1930s, Rep. Stephen Alford offered the following, according to The Garden City Telegram: “One of the reasons why, I hate to say it, it’s that the African Americans, they were basically users and they basically responded the worst off to those drugs just because their character makeup, their genetics and that.”
At the risk of stating the obvious, this is not true."

Gosh, why would any minority, why would anyone who is not a racist vote for these people?
