Referencing a recent book by a Black conservative named James Riley, Mr Cruz said the following---
"Jason Riley said in an interview: ‘Did you know before we had minimum wage laws black unemployment and white unemployment were the same? If we increase the minimum wage, black unemployment will skyrocket.’ See, he understands it, but the average black does not."
Rafael's son Senator Ted Cruz is no better.
Senator Cruz makes up stories about The Bronx, says nasty things about gays and maintains that Ted Nugent has useful things to say.
This father-son racism and extremism reminds us of Ron Paul and his son Senator Rand Paul.
Congressman Ron Paul has a long history of association with racists and eye-raising comments over his years in public office and as an advocate of libertarianism.
Senator Rand Paul has said he would have opposed the 1964 Civil Rights Act as a federal infringement on the right of private business persons to serve or not serve who they please.
Racism is built into the extremism of Tea Party Republicanism and libertarianism.
Also, it seems that in some cases this racism is passed down across the generations.
