Needless to say, even if you really do personally think it is not at all nice for racists to segregate their privately-owned lunch counters and bowling alleys it is still obviously and rightly going to be an enormously controversial and problematic thing to advocate that this not-nice thing should nonetheless be legal in America today. If you say such things and really believe them for reasons you think are good it isn't a gotcha attack to expect you to explain that controversial view in public to those you want to represent in government, and it is rather flabbergasting that a person on the record saying such things apparently wouldn't be prepared to be asked about them after winning his state party's senate primary.
