1. It is a favorite Right Wing line to claim Democrats keep blacks "on the plantation". I don't buy it.

2. Well Gee thanks Thom! You still got your RT gig?

Anti-dem.

Oh ya...we all remember.

3. Dems can't do squat for black, brown or poor people...

If they can't win elections. This nice, polite, take the high road act that Dem politicians use doesn't get many urban people off their @$$3$ to wait in line 45 minutes to vote for a Dem!

Republicans lie, cheat and steal their way to election wins, always undermining and staying two steps ahead of Dems. Republicans wouldn't think twice or feel badly about taking away any or all of my rights (I'm an African-American female, veteran) but all I've got to defend my rights are NICE, POLITE Dems!

Dems can motivate black, brown and poor voters by being vocal about raising the minimum wage, funding public schools, singing the praises/touting the benefits of a taxpayer-funded college education and boosting the pros of single-payer health care! That way Dems can run on more than just being pro-Impeachment or anti-Trump!

4. Agree! Shouting it from the rooftops..

or from every podium, every town hall, every public event possible. We should never miss an opportunity to speak out about raising the minimum wage, single payer health care, and college for all.. what you said!!

Give people something to vote FOR! If we don't, we're doomed. We've got to take control of messaging, and we have a good message to sell.
