Воскресенье, 24 Ноя, 2019

While giving a brief monologue about the vast support he enjoys from African Americans, the former VP was stopped dead in his tracks by fellow contestant Kamala Harris (D-California), a United States senator who is both black and female.

Buttigieg, the white mayor of South Bend, Indiana, who Wednesday his husband, Chasten, last year, countered that he was not comparing the travails of the LGBTQ community and black America, but instead speaking up for one discriminated class based on his experiences in another.

Biden also tends to poll higher with black Democrat voters than any other Democrat 2020 candidate by a large amount. Buttigieg is white and married his husband, Chasten, last year.

Pete Buttigieg, the South Bend, Ind. mayor who has surged in Iowa polls but has dismal support from black voters, spoke at a breakfast for the National Action Network, the civil rights organization founded by Al Sharpton.

Warren said that voter suppression is another relic of the Jim Crow era and, surprise - she has a plan for that.

It was no accident that she delivered her remarks in Atlanta, considered the capital of black America.

Harris and Buttigieg are among several Democratic candidates trying to dent former Vice President Joe Biden's advantage among black Democrats.

Harris became the second black woman elected to the Senate in 2016, a fact that Biden apparently overlooked Wednesday as he tried to promote his support among black voters. Tired of presidential candidates "not talking about" what they want to hear at debates and rallies, tired of these same candidates only coming to their communities when it is time to vote, and tired of the value of Black women voters being glossed over.

"I'm not going to put party interests first", Gabbard retorted. A DNA test showed, however, that Warren is overwhelmingly white and has very little Native American ancestry.

At Clark Atlanta University on Thursday, Pressley introduced the MA senator who was making her pitch about race issues and her plans for equality to a room mostly comprised of black voters.

With the first balloting now a bit more than two months away, former Vice President Joe Biden, Vermont Sen.

After the speech, according to the Washington Free Beacon, Carpenter had the chance to speak with Warren and told the senator that she and the other activists only want the same opportunity the presidential candidate enjoyed of sending her children to private schools. She bemoaned structural impediments beyond slavery, naming Jim Crow segregation, modern-day mass incarceration and red-lining practices that make it harder for minorities to get mortgage loans.

"We are going to have the same choice that you had for your kids because I read that your children went to private schools", Sarah Carpenter said when she confronted Warren in Atlanta, Georgia.

The crux of Warren's speech revolved around making sure, "the lessons of black history will not be lost".

Warren said she appreciated Carpenter's concerns about her children and grandchildren and that she would look over her plan if the pieces don't fit. "And you can't be afraid, either".

The protestors said they had come from all over the country to be at the event, raising $16,000 on the website GoFundMe to do so. He came fleeing anti-Semitism. "And I care about this, because while I do not have the experience of ever having been discriminated against because of the color of my skin, I do have the experience of sometimes feeling like a stranger in my own country", he continued.

Sanders, 78, went on to tell of his 1960s activism, describing himself and his fellow white students as "not quite so brave" as black citizens in the more unsafe Jim Crow South.
