“ Women are not a monolithic block, they are not an interest group and you should not be treated as such. ”

“ I will not soon forget that President Obama was at a $7,500 a plate fundraiser in San Francisco while Occupy protesters were being gassed and clubbed right across the bay in Oakland. I plan to keep that image etched in my mind as the 2012 Presidential campaign unfolds. ”

“ Unfortunately for supporters of Davis, Obama is in his second bid for president, which means that any call for justice for an African American would trigger a racial backlash from some voters, particularly those of the Fox-News, fear-mongering persuasion. And given the tough and divisive first term he has had, the chances that President Obama will stick his neck out for a fellow minority is close to zero. Like it or not, this is a cold reminder of how little effect a Black man in the White House has had on ending or even addressing the very real applications of systemic racism and injustices, which is manifested on a daily basis in society at large. ”
