While the focus of this week on Capitol Hill for Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) has been his “Audit the Fed” bill, the Texas Republican spent a little time discussing something other than monetary policy: the government and its impact on race relations.
“The Civil Rights Act is basically very good,” Paul said. “But it also undermined a very important principle in a free society and that has to do with property rights.”
“The real problem when we had the civil rights crisis was the fact that Jim Crow laws and they should have all been abolished. Because it’s always government that gives us problems in our race relations. I mean, just look at how the drug laws now are enforced. They’re very, very biased against minorities. And I’m against this drug war,” he continued.
