Cliven Bundy Tries To Clarify Himself, and Fails
Nevada Rancher Cliven Bundy appeared on a radio show this morning to respond to the reports regarding his statements about race and slavery. To say the very least, he didn’t help his case at all
He said, “I’m wondering are they happier now under this government subsidy system than they were they were slaves when they were able to have a family structure together… and the people have something to do.”
Bundy then asked, “Are they better off being slaves in that sense or are they better off being slaves of the United States government in the sense of a subsidy?”
The pathetic thing is that he obviously doesn’t understand why equating slavery with the current economic state of African-Americans would be offensive to people. Or, perhaps, he just doesn’t care.
