"African-Americans in Indiana have 80 percent out-of-wedlock birth rate. Fifty percent of all African-Americans between 18 and 25 are in the criminal justice system. Is it working? I don't know. You can't say there is no argument to the contrary. Yes, there have been many advances, but there are still many problems.
While we are brainwashed with respect to integration and forcing everyone to be together and basically all arguments to the contrary are silenced, historically it's very often been the case that you have to segregate and apartheid people to stop the continual war."

-- GOP Congressional candidate Tony Zirkle to the Kokomo Perspective. When pressed by the South Bend Tribune about his remarks as to how the divisions would work out, Zinkle responded that "You'd have to let people declare what culture they want to be living in. There are plenty of Indians living on the reservations today by their own choice. There's a communal trend."
