    “I believe that we need to think very seriously, particularly as folks of color and progressives, about building either a new party or a new movement that can hold the Democratic Party accountable or provide a meaningful alternative.”

    These are the opening words of legal scholar Michelle Alexander, the esteemed author of “The New Jim Crow,” while appearing in an extended interview with Chris Hayes on MSNBC last Friday.

    I not only agree with Alexander, but I want to take it a step further — I think it’s already happening right before our very eyes.

    Political progressives across this country, in supporting the candidacy of Bernie Sanders, are completely rejecting the Democratic Party. To be clear, Bernie Sanders has not been a Democrat his entire career in politics.

    I hope things really do turn around for him but I cant see Cali or Ny going in his favor but im rooting for him.

    I really couldnt see myself ever voting for Hilary , so Trump would be my only option or not voting at all. Dont really like him but I do think him getting rid of illegals would benefit us. I like thats hes upfront about how he really feels instead of lieing to us too but yea im not a really big fan of either just picking lesser of two evils .

    What criteria are you using to determine Trump to be the lesser of two evils over Hillary, Onthecomup87?

    This phenomenon of Blacks supporting Trump deserves serious scrutiny ...


    HOW TO EXPLAIN WHY BLACKS BACK TRUMP. IT’S NOT EASY




    ... “Trumpmania” has been dissected in many ways. Hundreds if not thousands of “think pieces” and other types of work have been published on the violence at Trump rallies; his political performance art; his bullying, proto-fascist inclinations; his casual misogyny; his professional wrestling con man persona and his compelling allure for white, working-class authoritarians. Trump has also been the focus of premature essays announcing the death of the Republican Party ...

    A Donald Trump supporter outside the Rainbow PUSH coalition, where Bernie Sanders spoke with the Reverend Jesse Jackson, in Chicago on March 12. The author writes, "As the Trump event at the University of Chicago descended into chaos, I was stunned by how the most violent incidents were between black Trump supporters and other African-Americans."

    Superdelegates could jump Clinton ship: James Robbins

    But Democratic-establishment delegates not likely to 'Feel the Bern' unless Hillary faces an indictment


    Bernie Sanders supporters hope that Democratic superdelegates backing Hillary Clinton will see the error of their ways and switch sides, especially if Bernie wins big in Wisconsin Tuesday. But that's unlikely. The superdelegate system is working exactly the way it was intended: to empower Democratic party insiders and beat down anti-establishment challengers ...
