"Let's say you're African-American and you live there, let's say none of this has to do with race. It might not, but the belief ó if you're African-American and you live in Ferguson, the belief is, you see people in prison and they're mostly black and brown, that somehow it is racial, even if the thoughts that were going on at that time had nothing to do with race.

"So it's a very good chance that had(sic) this had nothing to do with race, but because of all of the arrest and the way people were arrested, that everybody perceives it as, 'My goodness, the police are out to get us,' you know? And so that's why you have to change the whole war on drugs. It's not just this one instance."

Our bad.. we only "perceive it" as such.. Only Rand Paul in his infinite wisdom knows what's going on here... and there's a "very good chance that this had nothing to do with race"

I like this from the comment section at the link..

"So some white guy from Kentucky is telling the black people in Ferguson that itís all in their head. Rand Paul doesnít know a dam thing about what itís like to be black." anniebella
