State Sen. Al Melvin (R-Slave Labor is a good thing) issued a response to the President's remarks that illustrates that the mentality that caused AZ to be subject to extra scrutiny under the Voting Rights Act still exists, even if the Supreme Court set aside part of the VRA –
"Inflammatory"?? Either Melvin didn't watch the press conference, or he is a complete moron. Not that those are mutually exclusive states of being.
And if "race relations" have actually declined since Obama became President, it isn't because of any action on his part.
Other than, maybe, daring to exist in a world where the Melvins of that world think should be subject to absolute all-white control.
