Ted Cruz To Trayvon Martin's Mother: Stand Your Ground Laws Are Not Racist

At a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Stand Your Ground laws, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) argued the law benefits everyone, including African-Americans. Cruz also accused public leaders of exploiting Trayvon Martin’s death to inflame racial tensions.

"Sadly, we know that some in our political process have a desire to exploit that tragic violent incident for agendas that have nothing to do with that young man who lost his life,” he said. “We have seen efforts to undermine the verdict of the jury and more broadly to inflame racial tensions that I think are sad and irresponsible."

WELL said, Mr. Cruz!
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!
