The guy who is known for being against the Federal involvement in state discrimination of businesses is telling black people that the evil drug laws are why they should become libertarians.

His way of explaining this hurts my head: "No Republican questions or disputes civil rights. I have never wavered in my support for civil rights or the Civil Rights Act. The dispute, if there is one, has always been about how much of the remedy should come under federal or state or private purview."

The Civil Rights Act was created specifically because the states were doing nothing and there was no federal ability to intervene. It's like saying "We're completely in favor of gay marriage. The only dispute is whether it should be legally recognized."
