Roy Moore is a nice man. He also has a great sense of the American past, especially when it comes to family.
GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore stunned some listeners when he said he thought America was “great” during the era of slavery. Though he made the comments at a campaign rally in Florence, Alabama, more than two months ago, they’ve re-emerged in a viral tweet just days before the election.
Back in September, one of the few African-Americans in the crowd asked the candidate when he thought was the “last time” America was great.
“I think it was great at the time when families were united. Even though we had slavery, they cared for one another. … Our families were strong, our country had a direction,” Moore responded, according to a Los Angeles Times report in September.
At the same rally, he also referred to Native Americans and Asians as “reds and yellows,” the LA Times reported.

Yep, those sure were the good old days. I think Moore may have a picture of this above his bed.
