From a moderate Republican.

Is Bill Bennett a racist? I have no idea. He maybe, but he may not. However, his statement was racist. I don’t care if it was “hypothetical,” he basically said that crime would go down if blacks were eliminated. It doesn’t matter that he said the idea was reprehensible because he basically said that basically committing genocide would produce a good result.

Bennett needs to apologize, though I know he won’t. Republicans of all stripes needs to condemn his words and urge him to apologize. He might say he is sorry, but silence by Republicans will be tantamount to approval, and his statements are way, way beyond the pale.
