Re: Charlie Rangel and Andrew Young Endorse Wesley Clark

Is it possible that they actually believe in Wesley Clark? Do black politicians have to support black candidates by default. What parts of Sharpton's platform should have secured their support?

Re: Charlie Rangel and Andrew Young Endorse Wesley Clark

great question, of course it implies a few things: 1) that you have an idea of Clarks platform, 2) that you have an idea of Sharpton's platform, and 3) you have an idea of how much being Black should count, or not count, to Black voters and/or non Black voters. So, could you tell me what part of Clark's platform secured Rangel's and Young's support? And, could you tell me what value YOU place on being Black. What value do you believe an elected official who's constiuency is over 80% Black...

Hmmm ... Well, seeing as how Clark has never had any real political experience or affiliation, it's hard for me to understand how or why such an alliance between those three could or would take place! I'm not sure I understand what there is to endorse for Young or Rangel given a lack of a previous relationship. Other than that, I understand Solomonic's question ... but don't think that's the answer. Seems to me this move has politics written all over it! BLACK by NATURE, PROUD by CHOICE.

There was talk of that sort of thing in the AUC in the early 90's. I think Morehouse & Spelman were reluctant to pool their substantially larger endowments in with the rest of the center schools. Considering the financial mismanagement that was going on at Clark Atlanta & Morris Brown, they may have been wiser than I thought. I do think the idea would work however.

I'm not so much suggesting that there be mutual support of HBCU's by other HBCU's.
