In the comments below the picture he solidifies his support and admiration for the racist blackface figure. As Secretary of State he’s our mouthpiece to the rest of the world when it comes to our outlook on hate-speech and anti-discrimination laws. I’m not sure if he’s making a good enough case for them with this picture.
