"Republicans don't pay enough attention to African-Americans," Clark said, "but the Democratic party has thoroughly taken African-Americans for granted."
Absolutely correct on both accounts.

"Those are the politics of division,"
That statement is the politics of Rats, when they're called on being Rats.

(The Fourth Estate is the Fifth Column.)
The Democrats in Washington represent the "typical" white liberal who thinks that being politically correct around people who are Black--or in P-C-ese, African-American--is enough to prove they aren't racist. But when it comes to putting their kids where their mouths are, they would be "shocked, I say--shocked" by any suggestions that they are hypocrites for not putting their children in public DC schools.
To me it is very telling that the Clintons put Chelsea in private school, but the Bushes put their twins in Houston area public schools. I know this may be a minor point, but I believe a major statement is made by Cabinet members Rod Paige, Condi Rice and Colin Powell. And I don't think anyone, with any good sense, would call them "house--uh--inhabitants"!
BTW, how would a career in politics sound to you, rdb3?

I opened this page a few minutes ago and my PC froze up. The RATS smell defeat.
