BET Wire: Does Rep. Paul Ryan Think Black Men Are Lazy?

"A serious policy conversation on poverty should not begin with assumptions or stereotypes," wrote Reps. Marcia Fudge and Gwen Moore. "Poverty in our nation is a critical problem that must be approached with diligence and the utmost respect for those who are trapped by poverty's grasp."
