Tourists like both places, too
"Greece is not a big economy. It's about the size of metropolitan Miami."
Not stump speech material

Not a crime by itself
"For most black people in the history of this country … it was illegal to pass as a white person. You were actually put in jail if you tried to pass."
An obvious hoax
