False Advertising: The Democratic Party's Failure to Support Women of Color Candidates - Par Nigel Clarke

Le titre dit :  Fausse publicité : le parti démocrate n'est pas solidaire des candidats de couleur.

Un exemple parmi d'autres : celui de Lucy Florès ( en photo) qui raconte comment les gwo zouzoun de son parti ont préféré soutenir son opposant et que M. Bill Clinton a activement fait campagne contre elle.

Parmi ceux qui ont  obstacle à ccette candidate démocrate au sein du parti démocrate,  on retrouve bien évidemment le couple Clinton.

Et tout précisément dans le cas de de Mme Florès, il faut noter que  lui a fait barrage cette grande féministe Hillary Clinton en personne.

Si quelqu'un est étonné, c'est qu'il est tout bonnement stupide.

Parce qu'en définitive, dans le fond, en essence,  il n'y a pas de différence entre ruiner la production de riz de l'Artibonite et ne pas accepter que "leur pouvoir et leur façon de voir la vie puissent être critiqués par des femmes de couleur. "...aren't going to let their power and their perceived way of life be taken over by opinionated women of color."

The Democratic Party vs. Women of Color

Lucy Flores is a politician with a powerful and inspirational life story. Flores grew up in poverty as one of 13 children of a single father and "fell through the cracks," as many do, when she dropped out of high school and became involved with a gang. But she turned her life around and earned her GED, a college degree and a law degree before she was elected as a Nevada State Representative. In 2016, Flores sought election to the US House of Representatives. With local as well as national popularity, she enjoyed front-runner status in the Democratic primary and seemed likely to join the only 6 percent of Congress members who are women of color. That is, until she faced opposition -- what some would call "sabotage" -- from the highest echelons of the Democratic Party establishment.

"Not just [Hillary] Clinton, but [Harry] Reid lined up against me," Flores told Truthout. Corporate donations poured into her nondescript opponent's coffers while Bill Clinton actively campaigned against her -- a curious level of involvement in a primary for a former president -- and Flores was defeated.

Democratic establishment opposition to women of color is a phenomenon that seems to be repeating itself across the country. From Donna Edwards being subverted in her Senate primary race against establishment darling Chris Van Hollen, to Tulsi Gabbard and Nina Turner receiving "warnings" and "threats" for voicing their opinions, to the candidacies of women, such as Cori Bush, Cheryl Copeland and Joseline Pena-Melnyk being devoid of effective party support. It appears that Democratic Party leaders, as Flores asserted, "aren't going to let their power and their perceived way of life be taken over by opinionated women of color."
