The stunning portion of this isn’t that Touré believes Ryan’s remark that ‘our rights come from God and nature’ is offensive, but why he believes it’s offensive:

(video at link)

Touré: "[Paul Ryan] loves this line of ‘our rights come from God and nature’, which is so offensive to so much of America. Because for black people, hispanic people and women, our rights do not come from God or nature. They were not recognized by the natural order of America. They come from the government and from legislation that happens in relatively recent history in America. So that line just bothers me to my core."

What he is missing is it was the government that blocked those rights given to him by God. Once the gov't got out of the way he was able to enjoy his God given right.
