Very well said. I agree that we have a ways to go with equal rights of any sort (and I kind of have to question whether it's even totally achievable), but very well said all the same. I think it's only natural to find them capitalizing on the sensitivity on race at an HBU, though... you'll find that happening in the better part of the politician population. Doesn't mean it's right to be less than sincere in what you're saying, or to pander to a group (to a degree, patronizing them), just means that this is hardly unique to the Democrats. Send the GOP candidates to a megachurch and watch them all talk about how faith is losing its grip in an increasingly immoral America.

"there's still much to do" in the country with regards to race, that "racism" still exists

Are those things untrue?

That last quote by Edwards should read, "The issue of avoiding poverty is the cause of my life."

dan: Not to the degree that Democrats think they are.

Come on- I watched about 15 minutes and the questions suggested we were still in 1960 for God's sake.

The nutcase from NPR asked if "there should be a right to return" for all NOLA residents! That is a UN term used about Palestine / Israel conflict and shows she is loony.

This is a free country and anyone can move back to NOLA if they want to re-build their life.

All the Dems pandered to her question like there were some obstacle to blacks returning- and offered to pay gobs of our money to them.
I was hoping just one would have the ball to say it is still a free country and last I checked the higways are open to NOLA.
