Democrat Tim Kaine and his weird eyebrows turned heads this week when he made an odd quote about slavery. He said, the "United States didn't inherit slavery from anybody. We created it."
Kaine is talking about the legal framework for which the United States Constitution chose to keep slavery as a thing.
This was pointed out by the MarySue blog, who posted:
Now, it’s very clear if you actually watch the clip, that what Senator Kaine is talking about here is how America, both in the colonies and in the framing of the United States Constitution, chose slavery. We created … our own legal framework for it. It’s an uncomfortable truth that we still are feeling the repercussions of. America chose to be a slave nation, after a lot of debate, but we chose it.
Tim Kaine's quote was likely misinterpreted by many, but that doesn't negate the fact that he's a complete moron.Source: themarysue
