We can't have a black president in the United States.
The Iowa State University/Civiqs poll results released Thursday morning show support for Warren has dropped almost 10%. The protestors stopped Warren's speech for approximately 10 minutes. Bernie Sanders and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg - but they all added up to taking a lap under a caution flag in a race in which many candidates have failed but no one has taken a commanding lead. Kamala Harris, the California senator and handiest murky girl in the hump, blasted his manner as "naive". Harris, still lagging the front-runners, has not criticized the way Sanders talks about race, but the Vermont senator still must prove he can get more black votes than he did in losing the 2016 nominating fight. Biden spent Thursday meeting with black Southern mayors, led by Atlanta's Keisha Lance Bottoms, one of his top campaign surrogates. "Where I come from, you know, my dad used to say, half of winning's showing up".
Warren speaks frequently of the harms wrought by discrimination and institutional racism in America, and she has offered numerous policy plans aimed at improving the lives of people of color. 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.
"P$3 rotecting the right of a woman to be able to make decisions about her own body is fundamentally what we do and what we stand for as a Democratic Party", Warren said in response to the question about Edwards. "And American history teaches us that racism has for generations shaped every crucial aspect of our economic and political system". What Black women (is) she talking about?
Gabbard denied these claims and said Harris was lying and trying to smear her because she had no argumentative basis against Gabbard's proposed policies. "And you can't be afraid, either".
Fox News reported that the protesters were from a parent activist group from Camden, New Jersey, who were angry at "failing public schools" and Warren's stance on charter schools. They included Ayanna Pressley, a MA congresswoman and rising Democratic star, and Angela Peoples, an organizer who gained fame after she was photographed at the 2017 Women's March holding a sign saying, "Don't Forget: White Women Voted for Trump". If you notice, I have more people supporting me in the black community that have announced for me, because they know me, they know who I am. So, he was left to contend with Harris alone. We haven't done any focus groups on it.
When it came to the question of experience, Buttigieg pushed back against the idea that one's history has to have been in the halls of Washington, D.C.to count, suggesting that judgment is what is most important for the would-be leader of the country. Yet with overwhelming black support, Clinton then dominated Sanders in SC and across the Deep South, building an early delegate lead she never relinquished.
This is only one blunder from a list of many by the former vice president.
Now 78, he told the crowd - gathered around a statue of Morehouse alumnus Martin Luther King Jr. - of his 1960s activism, describing himself and his fellow white students as "not quite so brave" as black citizens in the more risky Jim Crow South. However, Sanders talked about, "I was arrested and went to detention heart combating housing segregation in Chicago".
And he wanted them to know his family history.
"When we talk about the great struggles for human rights that Dr. King exemplified, healthcare is one of those struggles", said Sanders. He got right here fleeing anti-Semitism. "The people who are denied access to abortion are the poor, are the young, are 14-year-olds who were molested by a family member, and we now have support across this country". But she pointedly addressed white Americans, too.
A long way from the marketing and marketing campaign proceed, extinct President Barack Obama equipped suggestion to Democrats obsessed with those varied approaches.
