Andrew Sullivan on the Black and Brown debate
This is a bit late but I just found this article by Mr. Sullivan from the New Republic and it is ever so insightful.
"...none of the other candidates has even raised the issue of Al Sharpton's record of race-baiting. Listening to them you get the impression that black and brown Americans are entirely unable to fend for themselves, and have no problems that aren't caused by whites. This is not to say that there isn't some truth in what the candidates said, but that its one-sidedness is part of the problem, not the solution."
