This lovely individual above is Heritage Foundation scholar Jason Richwine. He's co-author of the controversial study that argues an immigration overhaul would cost taxpayers $6.3 trillion. Lovely dude also happens to be the man who published a dissertation decrying immigration because Hispanics just aren't as bright as White people.
The average IQ of immigrants in the United States is substantially lower than that of the white native population, and the difference is likely to persist over several generations - Jason Richwine
Yeah! The White native population will have to deal with stupid brown people! That's so not cool! Let the White native population be great! Or as TWiB's resident fire starter Imani Gandy put it:
Call me crazy, but for a party that needs brown people to like them well enough to vote for them, it seems to me that calling Hispanics stupid is exactly the wrong way to go about it. The GOP should be deploying the friendliest among them to stand on the border, arms raised up with a boom-box blaring In Your Eyes, not calling brown folks a bunch of stoopid-heads. -- 'Hispanic Immigrants Be Stupid But Vote GOP!'

And on #amTWiB, political strategist L. Joy Williams and the morning crew discuss marriage equality in Delaware, fans demanding answers from disgraced prophet Silvia Brown, and multiple sclerosis is not as rare for African-Americans as previously thought.
