Shortly after California Sen. Kamala Harris announced she was ending her presidential bid, the question of depleting diversity in the Democratic field became a rallying point for several of the remaining minority candidates in their own campaigns. New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker in an impassioned speech on Thursday blasted the influence of money in politics as one of the reasons she dropped out. (Snip) However, several minority presidential candidates have complained that the structure of the Democratic National Committee's polling and fundraising rules to qualify for debates unduly makes it difficult to get the coveted primetime spots on stage needed

Comments:

But a lack of candidates of competence doesn't concern them.

Because it’s so not racist to vote for someone based solely on his/her skin color. Oh, wait, we’ve already been down that road.

The goal of the party primary is to eliminate diversity, i.e. end up with one candidate.

If they could ever get over their attitude that they are not a part of our country - that they are a separate population - they might feel better. Those elected to office are supposed to represent everyone, regardless of color. The blacks have been the worst at pulling that off as they constantly set themselves against the white people.

Today's Democrat party is run, and funded, by Progressives. Progressives tend to be upper-income and WHITE college-educated. Hope the GOP uses this type of concern from Cory Booker and others, to illustrate who really runs the Democrat party. Possibly helps explain why President Trump's approval rating among African-Americans is around 30% now, which must be of major concern to Dem party leaders who can't count on 90% vote any longer.

Not my idea but a great one: The DNC needs to create a socialized campaign structure where all money to be spent on political campaigning goes into a shared account and each Democrat politician gets equal share from that account, this way the billionaire candidates have to pay for everyone else. Anyone with connections to the DNC Chair please forward this idea! I want to see the looks on Bloomberg's and Steyer's faces when they are told they must give up 3/4th's of what they spend campaigning to other candidates so they can compete with them.

It certainly is an interesting question, isn't it. The Dems-of-Color have to be asking themselves -- "I've done the same non-productive, divisive and destructive community organizing and propagandizing as the sans-color Dems. Why don't I get a seat at the adults table? When a tanned nobody in Mom jeans who's never held a job and has all the athletic ability of PeeWee Herman gets to be President, why don't I?" I don't have an answer, but it really is an interesting question, isn't it? Why don't Democrats like American Af-Ams? A few possible answers: 1. The Democrat Party has always hated you. You're just figuring that out. 2. They don't need to show you any love because you'll sleep with them anyway. 3. The Democrat Party is a criminal enterprise, like the mafia. Producers rise to the top levels of the organization. You're not producers. You're takers, not makers. Show some innovative thinking of how to bleed more money from government for Progressive NGOs and non-profits, and you might get a promotion. 4. Learn how to speak like a Californian. O did it. You can too.

RIGHT. As if they color of one's skin or sex is the determining factor when deciding how to cast one's vote. Never mind their political views. There is ample evidence of how this works out. Take a look at how Baltimore has faired over the last five or six years.

Their concerns are unfounded, as Barack Obama, who is the leader of the leftist and liberal Democrat Party today will see to it that an African-American, most probably Obama’s friend Deval Patrick will be on the Democrat ticket. That is especially true since President Trump is currently polling with about one third of African-Americans supporting Trump, as with that percentage or more of African-American votes going to Trump the Democrats cannot win the General Election next year.

Not sure Kamala would have gotten the nomination unless she accepted a black man as her VP. She has already been hammered by leftist activists on her white husband. She is a nasty, incompetent and ignorant woman who has no business being the president. Leaving an exonerated man to rot in prison for two years during her pre senate career makes my point.

Former Vice President Joe Biden claims to have “the most diverse staff of anybody running” but his campaign won't prove it. Biden made the sweeping assertion in an interview with NPR this week while campaigning in Iowa.

(Snip) Pressed on whether he would name a person of color as his running mate, Biden responded in the NPR interview by highlighting what he called the most diverse staff of the field.

A small group of House Democrats fearful of their re-election prospects has revived the idea of censuring President Trump instead of impeaching him, according to a report out Tuesday. The Democrats, all repping districts Trump won in 2016, met Monday afternoon to consider their options, no matter how slim, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had already put the kibosh on censure, Politico reported. The lawmakers, about 10, included Reps. Josh Gottheimer of New Jersey, Kurt Schrader of Oregon, Ben McAdams of Utah and Anthony Brindisi of upstate New York.

The Democrats have been urging party leaders for weeks to strike back with their own countermessage, to no avail.

In the spring and fall migration seasons each year, billions of birds wind through the central U.S. as they soar the skies between Latin America and Canada. For many, the journey is deadly.

And for traveling birds, Chicago — where a skyline of glass and steel stretches across a heavily trafficked migration route — may be the most perilous of all U.S. cities.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) on Tuesday indicated that Democrats must impeach President Trump quickly in order to stop him from prevailing in the 2020 presidential election. Democrats on Tuesday unveiled two articles of impeachment against the president: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. Notably, neither allege a high crime or misdemeanor. Noticeably absent was the Democrats’ longheld appeal to bribery, extortion, or treason. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), flanked by chairs Jerry Nadler (D-NY), Adam Schiff (D-CA), Eliot Engel (D-NY), Maxine Waters (D-CA), Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), and Richard Neal (D-MA), stepped aside as both Nadler and Schiff briefly offered minimal details on their decision.
