"I Will Not Go To the Back of the Bus."
Courtesy of Jezebel, via the Group News Blog, we finally have the video of controversial Democratic superdelegate Donna Brazile's extemporaneous comments at a panel hosted by Jeffery Toobin. The title of the panel was "If I Were Running This Campaign" and at the end of the hour and twenty minute-long panel, Brazile launched an incendiary pre-emptive strike into the heart of the race-baiting McCain campaign and its supporters.
This is 2008, people. Mulattos who earn the right to go to Harvard Law School and pass the bar should not be called "uppity" or elitist. People like Donna Brazile shouldn't have to say a half century after Rosa Parks, "I will not go to the back of the bus." Race plainly shouldn't be an issue in this or any campaign.
Yet we have to keep having this dialogue over and over again.
