GOP Candidate States Black Men Prefer Drugs to Education

At a recent political debate in Champaign, Illinois, sponsored by the NAACP and the League of Women Voters, candidates for the state Senate were asked for their ideas on how to increase black enrollments at the University of Illinois. GOP candidate Al Reynolds of Danville stated, “Minority women are motivated more so than the minority men. The minority men find it more lucrative to be able to do drugs than to do education. It’s easier.”

In Tuesday’s election, Reynolds lost to Democratic incumbent Mike Frerichs.
