Mitt Romney addressed a crowd of potential voters in Alabama this past Monday and says:
I understand how difficult it can be for an African-American in today’s society. In fact, I can relate to black people very well indeed.
My ancestors once owned slaves, and it is in my lineage to work closely with the black community. However, just because they were freed over a century ago doesn’t mean they can now be freeloaders.
They need to be told to work hard, and the incentives just aren’t there for them anymore.
