On Racism

A New York Times/CBS News poll conducted last July asked: 'Have you ever felt you were stopped by the police just because of your race or ethnic background?' Sixty-six percent of black men said yes. Only 9 percent of white men said the same.

This reality is incomprehensible for the GOP in Wisconsin as represented by Mike Nichols and virtually the entire GOP delegation in the state legislature who strenuously objected to even collecting data on police pull-overs by race.
