a dean quote?
i'm thinking no, but would like verification. i don't believe that dean would say something like this quote from CNN, but someone from a black board i frequent stated she heard this:

"I also heard on cnn that he said that they needed to keep Morehouse College open..otherwise the prisons will overflow."

2. I don't believe that for a second!
Even Trent Lott wouldn't say something that racist!

10. jeez
people say all kinds of shit on message boards.

nobody was saying it here til you brought it up without any evidence to support the highly unlikely conclusion that it's true.

15. How would one prove anything about this with so little info?
Edited on Sun Nov-02-03 07:42 PM by w4rma
No sources, except for an alleged CNN viewer who probably has an anti-Democratic or anti-Dean agenda.

Google brings up nothing, btw:

16. THAT'S what i want to find out
the board where this person made the statement (the person wasn't particularly political, but WAS backing dean before this supposed statement) has some members who are very easily swayed by statements like this. now she will not vote for him. i would like to stop it.

20. uh, by the fact that nobody had heard it?
it was on cnn headline news. i know there are people here that watch cnn headline news, some religiously.

listen, i was just called a white bitch for trying to get a link to this story from the person who stated it. she was offended that i "called her a liar" (which i didn't, i just asked for proof).

got it?

19. I am locking this thread...
It is inflammatory. If you wish to discuss your views on Governor Dean and racism, please feel free to post in one of Skinner's threads.

Thank You,
