White? Shut Up

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is looking for a new chair to lead the party and earlier this week held a forum at George Washington University for those seeking that position.  One candidate, Sally Boynton Brown, who heads the Idaho Democratic Party, stressed that the DNC needs to provide better training for Party staff and workers.

She had some….well, some very ‘special’ thoughts on what that training should include:

“We have to, at the DNC, provide training. We have to teach them how to communicate, how to be sensitive and how to shut their mouths if they are white. So I think I made my point.”

And THAT is one reason we continue to have race issues.
