    He is right when he states black civilians dont receive "the same justice" as white civilians, AKA black civilians get harsher sentences, etc. But I probably will not agree with his policy solutions to the problem.

    Yet the OP describes it dishonestly by attempting to divide people in an attempt to cast racial bias against Paul. They've been dividing people by economic class and race a long time too.

    The OP just quoted the conservative Washington Times...

    Point taken - that is the title of the Washington Times article. I'll accept that I may be a bit harsh on the OP poster in this regard. I'm not adverse to having a knee jerk reaction every once in a while.

    Kudos to Mr Rand Paul for actually having the backbone to tell the truth on this hot button issue. I don't see it coming from the other candidates right now.
    Ironic since both Pauls wants to legalize racial and other types of discrimination by businesses.

    I'm not on board with Paul on most issues, and certainly not on the issue you just raised.

    I can see (I think) how given his supposedly philosophical view, that discrimination by the government is different than by business.

    Meh

    I don't think anyone can do any honest reflection about American society and deny that there is a privilege granted to whites in America, especially white, Christian males.

    I've never gotten any privilege in my life. Everything was work, everything was struggle. I'm a white Christian male. Tell me how privileged I am due to the color of my skin.
