I love Bill

His good fortune is my pleasure. If he has a good day it fills me with JOY. If he is harmed it fills me with Rage. I love bill.

After that post you have in your journal, I am certain I could not care ANY less about your notions

I'm not being told how she is the best for blacks day after day


Bernie refuses to discuss it on its own

He adds in his economic adjustments and goes straight to poverty. We are not all poor. What about the rest of us? She understands better.

Rather deal with the one who wont tell me that my real problem is money.

Can I have a list of Bernie's Pro POC legislation?

I am continuously told he has always been fighting for Black People for the last forty years, so is there a list of the Pro Black/POC legislations he has gotten through? Or written and put up for a vote? I'd like to see for myself what his track record is on fighting for our rights in government.

Sanders Plays catch-up with African Americans


Clinton, Sanders, and the underrated power of the black voter

■ Blacks have a significantly higher rate of church attendance than whites. So while some black intellectuals like Ta-Nehisi Coates, Michelle Alexander and Cornel West have backed Mr. Sanders, Mrs. Clinton is counting more on the black church.

An Upshot reader, Ed of Old Field, N.Y., wrote: “As white evangelicals are for Republicans, black evangelicals are an important constituency for Democrats, and Sanders in South Carolina will have as much of an uphill climb against their skepticism of him personally as Trump, for different reasons, had in Iowa. Not at all insurmountable, but a high hurdle.”

■ In the last South Carolina Democratic primary, black women made up for 61 percent of the black vote. In the 2012 presidential election, black women voted at the highest rate of any group across race, gender and ethnicity, and 96 percent of them voted for President Obama, according to exit polls. It is not an exaggeration to say that black women, in formation and flexing their political power, could have the final say over whether Mrs. Clinton beco

Hillary Clinton, in push for black support, promises to tackle racial disparities

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton courted the critical black vote on Tuesday as she met with civil rights leaders in New York and promised in a speech to tackle "very real barriers" confronting African-Americans.

Clinton is seeking to maintain her lead among black voters over U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, her rival for the Democratic nomination for the Nov. 8 election to succeed Democrat Barack Obama, the first black U.S. president.

The Clinton campaign said last week: "It will be very difficult, if not impossible, for a Democrat to win the nomination without strong levels of support among African-American and Hispanic voters."

Clinton's status as the Democratic front-runner was jolted this month when the former secretary of state beat Sanders by less than a percentage point in Iowa's caucuses and lost to him by more than 20 points in the New Hampshire primary. More than 90 percent of people in those states are white.

Bernie Sanders still won't update his message on race issues


What does this mean? I am not feeling this at all!

He was referring to comments made by Sanders in Thursday night's debate, when the Vermont senator was asked whether race relations would be better with him in the White House than they are now.

“Absolutely," Sanders replied, "because what we will do is instead of give tax breaks to millionaires, we will create millions of jobs for low-income kids so they are not hanging out on street corners."


Does that say 'so they won't be hanging on street corners'?
Ummm, what does that MEAN?!
