Posted by  ▪  December 10, 2014

Univision’s Jorge Ramos to Obama: Many people expected you to do more about “white privilege.”

Yeah, they went there. “The killings of Michael Brown and Treyvon Martin clearly shows that we don’t live in a post-racial society as many expected when you were elected,” Ramos says. Obama chuckled, “Well, I didn’t expect that. You probably didn’t either.” “But many people expected you to do more on race relations, dealing…

The Daily Beast thinks it’s time for Democrats to abandon the South and to that we say, “good riddance”

Had I not known Tomasky’s piece in The Daily Beast was not in fact, parody, I’d have thought I was reading something straight from the annals of The Onion. Bereaved over Mary Landrieu’s Louisiana Senate loss to Senator-elect Cassidy, Tomasky made the case (and I use that term loosely), that the Democrats…
