Paul Ryan Says Poverty Is Because Of Lazy ‘Inner City’ Men, Cites ‘White Nationalist’
Paul Ryan is trying to sell his poverty agenda, but feels the real problem is lazy “inner city” men. And he quotes the work of Charles Murray, who believes blacks are less intelligent that whites. Ryan spoke with Bill Bennett.
“We have got this tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work, and so there is a real culture problem here that has to be dealt with,” he said.
Ryan also cited Charles Murray, a conservative social scientist who believes African-Americans are, as a population, less intelligent than whites due to genetic differences and that poverty remains a national problem because “a lot of poor people are born lazy.”
