Ted Cruz met with voters Thursday in Webster. "And when they look at the remains in that graveyard, they see evidence of muscles literally torn from the bone, people being worked to death in these convict chain gangs, people who became convicts exclusively by dint of the color of their skin, in a system that was radically unjust, following what we thought was the end of that injustice at the end of the Civil War".

O'Rourke began by talking about the historical injustices African-Americans have faced, including law enforcement colluding with prisons and local employers to arrest African-Americans for petty crimes so they could force them to work on a chain gang.

"That injustice, to many more people here than I know firsthand, continues to persist today".

"That system of suspecting somebody solely based on the color", he continued, "searching that person, solely based on the color their skin, stopping that person solely based on the color of their skin, shooting that person solely based on the color of their skin, throwing the book at that person, letting them rot behind bars, solely based on the color of their skin".

He said there has been a war on a police officers for several years, and it's troubling to see a lawmaker as prominent as O'Rourke seemingly side against law enforcement. A lot of people listen to what he has to say.

"If liberal hopes could drive a Senate campaign to victory, Beto O'Rourke would be winning by 40 points", Enten said.
