A Republican World – The ‘Yes He Really Did Say That’ Edition – ‘Arizona GOP congressional candidate: Slavery wasn’t so bad, ‘kept business rolling’
‘According to the Root’s Keli Goff, Arizona congressional hopeful Jim Brown was trying to make a statement about federal spending and the nature of “entitlements” when he veered off course into racially offensive territory’.
“Back in the day of slavery, slaves were kept in slavery by denying them education and opportunity while providing them with their basic needs,” wrote Brown. “Not by beating them and starving them,” he said, adding “Although there were isolated cases, of course.”
“Basically slave owners took pretty good care of their slaves and livestock and this kept business rolling along,” he said’.
