Cenk Uygur Hammers Keli Goff of The Daily Beast Article on Black Folks Voting

18 Feb

Cenk goes off on Daily Beast columnist Keli Goff! And he is right. There is no reason to believe that voting for Sanders is against black folks interests. Or for that matter that Hillary Clinton will tackle the tough issues of race and racism in America if elected to be President.

BTx3 is not ready to go with or endorse either side at this point.

The only major satisfaction I see in electing Hillary is, after 8 years of a black President, shoving that sharpened stake up the nether parts of conservatives further by (probably) 8 years of a woman being President. And I have no doubt she is ruthless enough to deal with the conservaturd set, unlike Obama. However I have doubts whether any progress made under her leadership would be more than cosmetic in terms of the black community, in large part because of folks like the CBC supporting her.

What Bernie would do though is to attack the structural supports of racism in America – through reforming elements of the financial system. Providing black families the ability to gain wealth and pass it on is key to reforming the culture enabling racism and discrimination in this country. So when he says “bust up the big banks” – the impact of that is a lot broader than most folks understand. And Bernie has walked the walk supporting Civil Rights – for a long long time. Whether he is strong enought o dirve that legislation though is up to conjecture.

    I too have been wondering how Bernie Sanders approach to Corporate America might impact the lives of Black people. I don’t wonder that about Hilary. I like the idea of a woman president but, but I don’t trust her to do the right things, and she might turn out to be a Thatcher for us.

      That “trust” thing is why the race is so close.

    I’m tired of all of these black puppets sucking up to Hillary.

    If she promised to reverse most if not all of Bill’s policies that disproportionately harmed blacks then I would consider voting for her but Bernie is correct as it has always been for black folk–jobs, jobs, jobs.

      Yeah – that having a job and income thing does tend to be on the top of most folks list.
