http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/20/nyregion/20paterson.html?_r=1&hp African Americans have 1 Senator in DC and soon there will be but 1 African-American governor in the country. But the democrats routinely play the race card in the media ... okay ... call me clueless but I don't get it. Why don't democrats work harder for racial equality in positions of higher power in America? Seems to me the media puts the people in the pipeline that it wishes to gain popularity. Seems to me the democrats have no problem with this process. It's much easier to call someone racist than it is to roll up your sleeves and advance the political careers of deserving African-Americans in the country. Time for the democrats to practice that which they love to preach IMO. Or is Obama just a puppet President they display on their mantle of righteousness. Paterson has his flaws ... but what have they done to help him out ... besides nothing?
