Rand Paul: GOP needs to help African Americans
Rand Paul is proposing the usual Republican scheme of trying to "fix" African-Americans. This is typically the notion that if the government should implement some sort of jobs program or tax incentive, this will transform Africans into Europeans. Rand Paul fails to give details of his plans. But "reaching out" to African-Americans is sure to be a winning strategy for Republicans. Something like that.
Of course, Rand Paul knows this is fiction. All such programs that have been attempted over the past 50 years have failed. The problem (which cannot be admitted due to religious and ideological reasons) is genetics. People are different and we need to accept those differences. A government program cannot fix genetics.
