12. JFC, when did I bring race into this?
Edited on Sat Aug-13-11 01:40 PM by DCKit
You have a great point, but I only know what I know, and I was being too dramatic.

Three of the women I was talking about are black, and one of them (one of the best, smartest and most liberal of the bunch) is a neighbor of mine. I can't wait for the day when I can say "thanks for all you've done" in the elevator, but I haven't been home much, and haven't seen her in almost a year. My Mom freakin' LOVED those who spoke out, and I really need to pass that on.

I may have missed some (a lot) of the "good" guys, but that's only because I haven't been hearing shit from them, and I've been cut off from all Internet access and any kind of real news for most of the past five months. I only know what I know. I am ignorant of much, lately.

Not a big fan of Clyburn, HUGE fan of Keith Ellison. You won't get me there.

I may have mis-spoken, but you took it somewhere it didn't need to go.
