The far left magazine Mother Jones has succumbed to racist tropes.
A report in Mother Jones that began with the sentences:
On Wednesday the Senate agriculture committee approved a GOP proposal that would amend the farm bill the Senate is considering to ban “convicted murderers, rapists, and pedophiles” from getting food stamps. On its surface, the idea sounds unobjectionable, but the measure would have “strongly racially discriminatory effects,” according to the non-partisan Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP).has been leaped upon by online conservatives noting that Mother Jones's report postulates African-Americans are more likely to be murderers, rapists and pedophiles.
No it would discriminate against criminals MT @motherjones: GOP food stamps proposal would discriminate against black ppl
