Complete school? In the lousy public schools the Democrats give them? Paul is exactly right to engage with the black community and help them see what their 95% reliable vote is getting them.
Senator Paul sees this situation with complete clarity. Blacks perceive the criminal justice system to be stacked against them. We can all sit here and say "No, it's not!" and cite a boatload of supporting statistics until we are blue in the face, and guess how much that perception will change. Even if the problem is a problem of perception alone, Senator Paul is doing exactly what all conservatives/libertarians ought to be doing - going to the black community and getting them engaged in fixing these problems themselves and offering our support. After all, their perception boils down to this: that government, whether in the form of the criminal justice system or our K-12 education system, is failing the black community. This is a fertile field of potential libertarians. We just need to show them the truth.

Look, Senator Paul has a strong point and it wasn't about the Grand Jury's conclusion, it was about Michael Brown's death. Looking at this from a very broad perspective, Brown ended up dead for stealing a box of cigars. Sure, his actions led to that going down the way it did, but it does not change the fact that he ended up dead for stealing a box of cigars. And that is what most blacks see.

Exactly. And THAT is the main message Senator Paul is trying to communicate to the black community. “If you don’t like your local government … you need to replace them,” he said. The problems you cite are government-caused problems. Senator Paul is trying to carry that message and we should be, too.
