I think we can no longer hide the truth about any politician. The political record of any and all candidates are fair game. Each candidate should have to give an account for their own record. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
Our political system is broken, and neither party is a solution. Anyone in politics for a lifetime is part of our problem. People can serve in a number of ways publicly beyond holding public office. We can’t move forward because the old guard keeps holding us in the middle or taking us back to times America was good for White America, disregarding the national inequality and inequity of minorities and Blacks.
Ignoring race is ignoring the problem. And we’ve done a great job of doing that for 245 years already. It’s time for something different.
