    Anyhoo, I've decided that I will cast my vote for whichever Dem candidate is most popular amongst African Americans. It's high time they took over because they have suffered long enough at the hands of The White Man.
    Ahhh, but do you believe in Reparations for ADOS?
    when asked about Reparations, Harris said she ain't creating any special laws for black people so that's her done and dusted.

      Harris will make Dukakis look like a great campaign, if she gets the nomination we are doomed. I fear she is the Sensible Centrist box ticking hope but.

        I do support reparations, and I would like to extend that to Native Americans as well. I don't get the sense from my Black Twitter friends that Harris is very popular among POC anyway, for reasons that have more to do with criminal justice than with the reparations issue. She ain't it.

          Washington state has passed a bill to keep 45 off the 2020 ballot papers, unless he releases his tax returns. (5 years minimum, and for any candidate.)

                So if I have it right, that poll was taken before Beto publicized his fundraising haul. I wonder if that would've changed it any.

                  Native Americans have had reparations numerous times and black people have had nothing. Actually, Native Americans had cut black people out of reparations that were meant for the both of them. The little black people got after the civil was was taken back from them during jim crow with repressive laws, arson and theft (see the Freedman's bank)

                    If it turns out to be Biden v Sanders, what a fucking indictment of the Democrat talent pool.

                          Eh, it's just a slump. Like the Dutch national football team. Generational gap with low quality in the middle, but some promising youngsters bubbling up. Give it eight years, and the picture will be completely different.

                            Yeah, I have actually thought about what I wrote there and you're right. There are still injustices, but that's a completely separate issue.

                            What I'm not so sure about is ADOS vs the wider Pan-Africanism movement. I believe that reparations should not be limited only to ADOS, and I think ADOS is being used by trolls to sow division. And I'm not trying to whitesplain this issue, so whenever I've got it wrong, please tell me.

                                Is he back again. Might be good for Sanders have somebody ten years older and ten times angrier than him in the race.
