He's keen to start executing people again in NC, and he sneers at the concept of racial justice. In fact, sneering at black people seems like it's a specialty of state Sen. Thom Goolsby:
Sen. Thom Goolsby, R-New Hanover, on "Moral Mondays." He calls them "Moron Mondays." Speaks — reeks — for itself: ncspin.com/2013/06/10/mor…

Here's an excerpt:
The circus came to the State Capitol this week, complete with clowns, a carnival barker and a sideshow. The “Reverend” Barber was decked out like a prelate of the Church of Rome (no insult is meant to Catholics), complete with stole and cassock. All he was missing was a miter and the ensemble would have been complete.
Several hundred people — mostly white, angry, aged former hippies — appeared and screeched into microphones, talked about solidarity and chanted diatribes. It was “liberal theater” at its best. Just like having a honey bun and double espresso for breakfast, the impact of it all left the participants jittery and empty in the end.
Never short on audacity, the Loony Left actually named their gathering “Moral Monday.” Between the screaming, foot stomping and disjointed speeches, it appeared more like “Moron Monday.” The gathering was supposed to influence legislators. However, no one thought to bring out any senate or house member from either party.
Goolsby is wrong, of course, to say no other legislators were present for the protest. I recall seeing several, including Mike Woodard, Pricey Harrison and Earline Parmley, and I'm sure there were others.
But why let the facts stand in the way of a uninformed diatribe?
