Warren, step back a second. The downballot....the Senate

is up for grabs. More important than internecine squabbling....HRC will be our nominee. It's time to work the downballot.

Stop 3/5ing the vote of the AA community.

I've seen a troubling trend over the last few months in GD: P, the denigration of the votes of Black Democrats. Whether they've been accused of being low-information voters, being duped, listening to 'slander,' or having Stockholm Syndrome, the continual drumbeat seems to be an attempt to drive down the vote in that community by insulting them and implying that their votes were not achieved correctly.

Yes...drive down the vote in the AA community by telling them that their votes were achieved through trickery.....suggest that the AA community is lesser, part of "the Confederacy." That's not a strategy that helps any Democrat. It makes you wonder why someone would post, insulting an entire demographic. Why would anyone try to drive down the AA vote?

Why would anyone recommend posts that suggest such? Why would anyone post offensive material, and keep that material up after some of the most notable posters in DU's AA group have indicated that it is offensive?

No Democrat benefits from that behavior. Not a one.
