Response to bravenak (Reply #58)

64. Okay here we go point by point again:

1: Gordon Gecko????? So you are now claiming that "THE BLACK COMMUNITY" (why are you shouting that?) mostly admires greed? I think you are wrong on that one and I think claiming that Gordon Gecko is an icon for 'the community' to be downright disrespectful of 'the community'.

2. Running against someone in a primary is not disrespectful, it is the Democratic way. If anyone thinks they can do a better job than the current President and can win, they have not only the option but actually the obligation to run. Bernie didn't run then and I suspect that was because he thought Obama was about the best we could have at the time. He obviously doesn't think Hillary will be a fit replacement and so decided to run this time. And I agree completely with him.

3. Not sure about Alaska, so your experience may differ, but in Los Angeles, I haven't seen that at all. People of all colors seem to love Bernie here.

4. I basically answered that above but I will add that I really don't see many Bernie supporters as being anti-Obama. In fact, many of them were avid Obama supporters and still are. You might also want to check out the current crowd you hang out with and see how many of them were actually Obama supporters previously.

By the way, at the same time Bernie was marching with and supporting MLK, Hillary was backing Goldwater who opposed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Please do yourself a favor and read up on Goldwater.
