A leading African-American Democrat last night denied she invoked race in a fight between New Hampshire and the Democratic National Committee in a commentary she wrote for a Capitol Hill newspaper.
Veteran party strategist Donna Brazile wrote in Roll Call that potential candidates who back the Granite States effort to preserve its primarys traditional role are insensitive to the concerns of minority voters in other regions of the country.
She referred to voters in mostly white New Hampshire and Iowa as the privileged few.

"... insensitive to the concerns of minority voters ..."
Gaaaaawd, I am sooooo fricking sick of that crap. (((sigh)))
Last I looked, anybody who wanted to was free to move either to New Hampshire or Iowa. Of course, they'll be expecting you to work for a living when you get there!
As if the people of Iowa are a bunch of white rich elitists.
So the selection of John Kerry by the Democrats was too heavily influeced by New Hampshire...um, because they are too white? Is this their logic?
The Dems are eating their own.
They don't need no stinkin' logic!
I expect if New Hampshire were more diverse then Al Sharpton would have gotten the nomination...if only.
Rush said yesterday that this country will never be able to shake one of the sins of our past; Slavery. The Libs will alway use this as a crutch.

Diversity is such a load of crap. And you can bet that those who spew about diverisity all the time are really only interested in a certain kind of diversity and will aggressively dismiss any other competing notions of diversity.
Suffice it to say that I roll my eyes every time I hear the word used as an adjective that is supposed to reflect a positive quality, especially when its coming from an academic.
Right. Whenever I think of New Hampshire, I always remember that huge African-American population throughout the state. (rolls eyes)
That must be a reference to the many of us who are comfortable in our skin.
Funny, I always thought there were more of us.
Gratitude for what? Being Brought to this country instead of being left to starve and kill each other in Africa? For being better off than Negroes in any other country in the world? For being given jobs they dont qualify for in an affirmative action program? For being given small business minority loans? Gratitude? Hardly.
Play that race card Donna baby, its served you well your whole life and though people are getting a little tired of seeing it, its tattered and torn , it still works in a game with liberals who dont know any better or are burdened with a guilt complex. It also works great with rich boys like Kennedy and Kerry who have been using you and you brethren for years and giving you squat.

If I may edit: Julian Bond - the female Donna Brazile
Headline: "Top Democrat Lies. Again."
But, you see, that isn't news.
Memo to Donna: When opening big mouth, try not to stick your foot in it as I did, repeatedly!

Say it again Democrats: "NEW HAMPSHIRE IS TOO WHITE FOR THE FIRST IN THE NATION PRIMARY". Diversity? Ya right. The only white males the Democrats care about are the ones they want to elect.
BTW, WHAT"S WRONG WITH BEING WHITE?
So it is an universally held opinion on this board that Civil War was primarily about slavery? That Lincoln was a hero for saving the Union and freeing the slaves?
It's hard to express gratitude over the Union freeing the slaves when one side you hear that blacks should be grateful that Lincoln and the Union freed the slaves and other you hear that slavery has nothing to do with the war.
