21. strong dean supporter here
who couldn't agree more. has been my biggest problem with the campaign all along.
i've been hosting meetups for months and there are always just 2 or 3 black people in a room of 30 or more. it's pathetic.
i've speculated it's the meetup process. i also think that there is a saturation point in each community of people who spend enough time on the internet to deal with meetup.
we've all heard the "mousepads and shoe leather" line.
my opinion is that the mousepads have been hit hard enough for a screaming case of carpal tunnel while the shoes have been sitting in the corner.
and before anyone gets upset, i know that there are a lot of people out pounding the pavement for dean (i'm one of them and see them regularly in my city) but those of us who are doing that are a disappointingly small percentage of the 525,000 members of the campaign.
