beginning a conversation amongst white people that should have begun long ago about white labor having the same problems as black labor. While black folk may have recognized this long long, long long time ago (c) bernie mac, *some* white people are just starting to make that conversation. the thing is, dean is doing it now just to get more votes to get into office.
it does not seem that he plans on bridging any racial gap once he getst into office by bringing in the confederate flag white boy and the black folk together. if he does he's not having a good plan set about. i don't see any real headway being made in giving black folk a say in his campaign, i see he passed up going to clark atlanta to spend the day at georgia state.
i see nothing in his plan for agriculture on the black farmer. if you want to talk about connecting the rural white laborer and the rural black laborer it would be beneficial to mention what you plan on doing to correct the wrongs being committed against African Americans in the US Department of Agriculture.

Nowadays silence is looked on as odd and most of my race has forgotten the beauty of meaning much by saying little."

There are at least 5 definable points in the black political spectrum that can readily be said to have a vast constituency within black populace, which are simultaneously operative on virtually all political issues affecting blacks.
1. The Traditional Integrationist: NAACP, NAACP legal defense fund, National Urban League. It is this portion of the black political spectrum that has been most recognized and responded to by whites and by predominantly white institutions. The RESULTS of integrationist litigation are more real, more institutional and have a more concrete impact on daily reality than the many fledgling programs and new theories of other poles.
