7. Alford's claim that Boxer gratuitously racialized the discussion was disingenuous.
Edited on Mon Jul-20-09 08:32 PM by burning rain
He's with the Black Chamber of Commerce, so that makes it logical to offer a competing view from another black organization. His point would be sound if he were simply with the Chamber of Commerce, but that's not the case. I understand that there's a legitimate need for a Black Chamber of Commerce, but he is with it, and that's salient. Also, his claim of non-partisanship holds as much water as Fox's "fair and balanced," or a sieve, for that matter.
