Some of you may poopoo the value of Twitter, but this is why I value it. I had NO IDEA that Roy Moore had said the following IN SEPTEMBER. Did you?
Responding to an African American asking when he last thought America was “great”: Roy Moore said, “I think it was great at the time when families were united. Even though we had slavery, they cared for one another…. Our families were strong, our country had a direction.”
Former Suffolk County Sheriff Andrea Cabral responded thusly in her Twitter feed, @criticalthawt : ” ‘Even though we had slavery…’ Centuries of this country’s history and the time that Roy Moore picks as the last time America was *great, is a time when white people owned black people.
If Alabama elects this man, I think we’re done here.”
Out of the many reasons to fear this man, Sheriff Andrea Cabral hit upon what should be at the top of the list.
