NO! It is exactly that unbalance relationship that leads to a stalled, halted or forsaken "dialogue." Arguably, people could say Dr. King and Pres. Lydon Johnson started a "dialogue." For sure, a number of common folk or community leaders, mostly educators and religious leaders have had "dialogues." But hardly any thing that can be regarded as a serious "dialogue" where it counts, in the halls of power. As for Clinton's deal, you can research and look for opinions about that "conversation".

I am noting that once again Ms Clinton is reaching 'into African American-related heritage to make her point. Like 'It Takes a Village...' I also don't think her analogy is terribly far off the mark, if at all. Washington, D.C. itself is, in fact, constructed on the plantation model. The city is a separate political entity controlled entirely at the discretion of the U.S. Congress, without active representation in the business of the nation.

Trust me, I started to listen to Rush in 1993 because of what I saw on 60 Minutes. I don't know who said it, but it was a black female said that Rush was racist therefore I had to listen to verify. And for the first six months, I listened to why President Clinton proposing to raise taxes on the middle class and taking money from school children who were having bake sales to lower the national debt. No racism, only criticism.

I know I'm probably preaching to the choir here, but Clinton got those applause because he deserved them. The only thing Bush deserves is a swift kick in the teeth, and no body knows that better than African-Americans. He should have done what he did with the NAACP in 2004 and just declined the invitation. Or, we could have learned our lesson and not invited him at all. I don't think Ms. King would have missed him.

so based on your analogy, I guess we should just not fuck.....but since we know, we can't not fuck, we must pick which one to do. let's not forget, we have to negotiate with Republicans. It's hard to get things done when the two can't agree. Also, Reagan's "war on drugs" is what contributed to the high rate of incarceration of black men. you can also blame the unequal judicial system and poor choices made by some men. You cannot blame Clinton for that.

Very true. Democrats often get blamed for programs that Republicans put in place. Government moves slowly. Often times, the results of Republican policies don't manifest fully until power has changed hands. It often takes a Democrat to come in and try to clean up the mess after the Republicans have spent far too much time screwing it up. I actually feel sorry for the Democrat who has to clean up Bush's misdirected "War on Terror".
