While gifs are great at dancing, jpegs are clearly the master image format.

I thought that in spite of his poor wording, he was trying to say that the country's focus should be on that of black American citizens and not on citizens of other countries who come here illegally. I've heard similar arguments made by some who are definitely not Republicans.

But then I read more of the quote from Carson:
Quote:
“That's what America is about. A land of dreams and opportunity. There were other immigrants who came here in the bottom of slave ships, worked even longer, even harder for less,” he said. “But they too had a dream that one day their sons, daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, great-grandsons, great-granddaughters might pursue prosperity and happiness in this land.”
Wow.

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

It's a Republican, duh.

Quote:
Maine Gov. Paul LePage has apologized to a black father for his previous racially charged comments, drawing applause from the crowd at a town hall meeting.

Garrett Stewart told the white Republican governor on Wednesday in Yarmouth that criticism of civil rights leader John Lewis and comments about black drug dealers coming to Maine were hurtful to his children.

LePage responded by saying, "I apologize to you and your children."

The self-described straight-talking governor faced widespread criticism last year when he said out-of-state black and Hispanic drug dealers were coming to Maine and impregnating "young, white" girls. He has said he meant to say "Maine women."

LePage also insulted Lewis after the Democratic Georgia congressman questioned the legitimacy of Donald Trump's election, and the governor rejected a call from the NAACP to apologize.

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

"Life-wrecking dependency"? Fucking hell - I have zero interest in ever smoking marijuana but if alcohol is legal, there's no reason that weed shouldn't be as well. And there is certainly far more precedent for alcohol being a life-wrecker.
