This seems to be divisible into two questions:
1. Is X true?
2. What follows from X if it's true?

The debate should be kept separate for these two questions. For instance, King may be right about 1, but on 2 he may be wrong.

Strange thing to say.

Nonetheless, I’m unsure if it’s entirely invalid.

Or why it would necessitate “racism”?

I don't understand the "racist" connection at all.

I'm sure many of us are the product of a rape at some point. Soldiers, Vikings, pirates, etc. haven't always been the most chaste of people when dealing with those they conquered.

His point seems to be that the cause of the pregnancy is irrelevant to the child. There is a point there.

Not sure what that has to do with race.

Still, the out loud public wondering about going back in time and removing all the products of rape is a bit weird coming from the mouth of a politician. Not the weirdest thing I've heard from one though.

Full disclosure: I totally thought this thread was about the author until I clicked the link.

If you people are not aware of King's racist history you have not been paying attention.

His name sounds familiar (mostly because I keep forgetting he's a Representative when I see the name and immediately jump to the author), but I don't follow news stories about him. And yes, I know the author goes by "Steven" but I habitually misread the name. It's happened here more than once.

However, if he is a racist, that has nothing to do with this article, so for those of us that admittedly don't pay much attention to him, it seems like a strange title.

It would be like a conservative titling a thread "AOC: Socialist Lunatic" and the whole thread be about her pro-choice positions.

Racist people cannot say controversial things without it being racist? I did not know that.
