I’m white, and even I know that “tone trolls” are racist. I mean, duh. You don’t even need to write into “yo am I racist” to get the answer to that one.

Oh man, this Rachel Maddow clip is HILARIOUS. Oh, Rand Paul, not many people who plagiarize are going to lift their stuff from the Wikipedia article on Gattaca. I guess fake libertarians don’t care about property rights, just about keeping women from controlling their own bodies.
