31. No ... It was Rand Paul. In his "Lion's Den" tour ...

 

He, actually, attempted to inform the students of Howard University about Black History ... "Did you know several of the NAACP founders were white?" {Collective groan} And, "MLK was a republican, while Democratic Senator Byrd was a klansman?" {louder groan} And, "There was a Black man in Congress back in the '50s ... his name escapes me." {crowd response, "Adam Clatyon Powell! ... now go away!"}

Not to mention, he did the same thing in Detroit at a NAACP gathering ... but hey, "At least (I'm) going where other republicans won't!"
