Brad Ford Recycles Offensive Blog Posts

Nearly a year ago to the day, Brad Ford asserted
Farmers don’t abuse, neglect, or minimize animals under their care because problems will show up. Even slaveowners centuries ago understood this. No, people aren’t animals, but the same dynamics about caring apply. Families know this instinctively.
Today Brad Ford republishes that creepy, ahistorical, reprehensible column verbatim.

There must be some weird holiday that people like Ford celebrate between Martin Luther King day and Lincoln's birthday  Part of the celebration must include efforts to have the person at the forefront of the civil rights struggle and the person recognized as the man who emancipated the slaves both spin in their graves.

People have the write to publish such tripe at their leisure but I really wish they would learn which items belong in the trash and which items deserve to be recycled.
