Please name five Black American males you respect

I wont go first.

Can sane people support their cable providers AND progressive political issues?

I guess the answer is pretty obvious.
or maybe not?

who needs guns?

Why should MINORITIES get any representation?

let alone all of it?

What is the ESSENCE of Racism?

In my opinion, it is
THE BELIEF THAT SOMEONE ELSE IS SIGNIFICANTLY AND UNACCEPTABLY DIFFERENT.
this is, of course, complete nonsense.
we all function in the same manner, doing the same things.
Simply because a religious or political denomination insists upon fundamental falsehoods
does not make them true or adherents harmless.

they all know better.

Does VIOLENCE belong in the liberal toolkit?

I believe the big difference between conservative and liberal values is most simply stated as-
CONSERVATIVE = "WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?"
LIBERAL = "WHAT'S IN IT FOR EVERYBODY?"

If people are going to die, thats simply not a liberal value.
and there really is no such thing as "neoliberal" anymore than
"libertarian". there arent that many shades between
RIGHT and WRONG.

did Glen Greenwald and/or Snowden impact DU participation?

I know old soldiers fade away, and the incentive to re-elect our POTUS must be dwindling, this late in the game,
but how and why would some of the most indefatigable of posters pull up stakes?
I sure hope those libertarians didnt shake the faith, or send anyone running for cover.
seems so unlikely, it leaves me puzzled.
hope all are well, and enjoying their rest.
