Response to walkingman (Reply #1)

4. Okay....I'm guessing that you did not watch the clip.

There are many flavorings of life experienced by the black community that are unique to being black. Since we are talking about black people in America, being "American" is not in question.
This response is problematic. Would you say the same response to a person talking about furthering gay/women/worker's rights? Candidates often offer solutions to their various concerns without any hesitance. No one would tell a gay person that gay/trans issues are no different than American issues because it belittles the concerns of the gay community. Why do you think your response is okay in this instance?
