A Republican World – ‘WATCH: Black Constituent Confronts Paul Ryan Over ‘Inner City’ Remarks’
Paul Ryan’s actual remarks :
Ryan: “Absolutely. And so, that’s this tailspin or spiral that we’re looking at in our communities. You know your buddy (conservative scholar) Charles Murray or (public policy professor) Bob Putnam over at Harvard, those guys have written books on this, which is we have got this tailspin of culture in our inner cities, in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work; and so there’s a real culture problem here that has to be dealt with”.

For a real thril google Charles Murray and then ask yourself why Paul Ryan would promote him and his ideas.
And then tell me Ryan wasn’t being a racist.
RACINE, Wisconsin — ‘If you could pinpoint the moment when Paul Ryan lost control of his message on Wednesday, it was when he began explaining to an African American constituent why his recent comments about lazy “inner city” men actually had nothing to do with race’.
“You said what you meant,” Alfonso Gardner, a 61-year-old African American man from Racine, told Ryan at a town hall meeting. “[Inner city is] a code word for black.”
‘Ryan remained defiant though. “There is nothing whatsoever about race in my comments at all,” he said. He admonished Gardner for drawing a connection between his “inner city” remarks and race. “I think when we throw these charges around, it should be based on something.”
- Like what you actually said Ryan?
- Charles Murray’s papers are on the black race being inferior to whites Ryan.
- How about the unemployment rates in Non metro (rural) areas? Do they have a ‘culture problem’ Ryan?
