On racial tension, Walker sees ignorance as bliss

“In other words, acknowledging systemic problems like the documented wave of police killings of unarmed black men, or the racial wealth gap, or disparities in sentencing and incarceration, creates “discord.” During the GOP debate, he similarly dodged a question about the Black Lives Matter movement, which even Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly called “the biggest civil rights issue of our time.”

Walker is far from the only politician to avoid addressing race. Yet his tenure as an elected official has proven uniquely bad for people of color and, despite his talk of “unity,” Walker has long used race as a means of dividing the public.”
