    I always marvel at the Blackademics who say PBO needs to make a defining statement on racism. The statements are already made by the racists

    Love how PBO brought up that grad Ciera was accepted to Harvard but attended Howard. Slapped the Scalia “lesser universities” theory in face

      This is why Bernie Sanders needs to stay in until all the votes are counted.

      Like him or not, he has the right to stay in and the voters have a right to decide if they want to VOTE for him or Hillary.
