Some Truth at a Presidential Debate. Who da thunk.
“You can look at this stage and see an African American, a Latino, a woman contesting for the presidency of the United States,” Clinton said. “But there is so much left to be done, and for anyone to assert that race is not a problem in America is to deny the reality in front of our very eyes.”
Obama, when it was his turn, said, “We have made enormous progress, but the progress that we have made is not good enough.”
Just hours after the Supreme Court handed down a decision restricting public school districts’ use of race in most school-acceptance decisions, Sen. Christopher J. Dodd (Conn.) described the ruling as “a major step backwards.” He added: “And as president of the United States, I would use whatever tools available to me to see to it that we reverse this decision today.”
I’m giving Mike Gravel a couple of extra points for the off color pants.
Dare to be Different.
Speaking of the Supreme Court, that was some really fucked up decision.
