New Jersey Senator Cory Booker has all but abandoned his post in the U.S. Senate in his neverending quest to run for President of the United States, or as some think, he’s marketing himself to be on a ticket for Vice President of the United States. Now, he’s accusing the Democrat Party of being racist.

Booker who failed to meet the party’s criteria for being on the stage in the next national debate said it wasn’t his lack of fundraising or less than 1% showing that resulted in his disqualification, but the color of his skin.

“The DNC’s debate thresholds have systematically paved the way for a billionaire to buy his way onto the stage while pushing out candidates of color from participating,” Booker said in a campaign fundraiser email. “We pride ourselves on being the party of inclusion, yet time and time again our candidates of color are cutting their campaigns short because they don’t have the financial resources to continue on.”
Aren't only two of the candidates billionaires? What the hell is Booker even talking about?

Hey they finally admit it that the DNC and Democrats are racist. Who would think the party of the KKK, Jim Crow, Slavery, and Northam blackface could possibly be racist.

Remember this is the primaries, it has nothing to do with Republicans or alt-right, or the right wing. This is on Dems and lefty voters not giving Cory enough money or polling for him.

Classic Dem/Lefty stratgey, when all is lost just cry racism.

Oh boy, it really has come full circle. I wonder if Democrats are willing to reject "his truth" or if they'll bend the knee for the sake of the dogma.

Seems the Asian one is in on it


Says that the DNC is denying the will of the people, not sure what that's supposed to mean. Maybe I am not well-versed enough the progressive California hobo politics.

Ok but even if it weren’t, the Democratic base still wouldn’t be excited by your name and the big nothing that comes with it.

Losers with no perspective blame others for their losses. Can't fix your problems when you're blaming others for the causes. Democratic party in a nutshell.

This is the momemt when your actually standing next to someone who states something like this and your at a loss for words, and just stare blankly at them, mouth agape in awe of their hypocrisy, ignorance, and stupidity.

What a moment in time for ol' sparty.

Everyone is racist.

Your mental gymnastics are showing. We need to toss more freedom into your gates. The console board is over there. Post more sexbox theories.

And whose fault is this?

Let me guess "systematic racism" right? I really want to create a thread highlighting how different would the world be if no one could claim "victimhood" for why they fail.

Because what other solution is there? Forcing equality is basically the socialist response, and we all know what Socialist countries look like when you don't have to work for your effort.

Also, didn't Trump beat Hillary by spending less money than her during his campaign? Maybe money isn't the reason these guys are failing, they just don't appeal to sensible people.

This is what happens when everyone can claim victimhood. They also all become victimizers. Let the snake continue to eat its tail, I say.

"What the hell is Booker even talking about? "

What's being discussed is this. I'm not taking an opinion on this, cause there is no perfect system, I'm just stating it out.

IF you take 100 white persons and 100 average non-white persons, who are average in respect to their demographics:
Who is more likely to donate to a presidential candidate?
Who would have an easier or harder time donating to a presidential candidate?
Who would donate a higher amount of money to a presidential candidate?

The DNC debates have "qualifiers".
X supports, X amount raised, leading in X polls, whatever.

This is why Booker used the term "systematically". His argument is that non-white candidate are at a disadvantage, because the answers to those above questions all make it more likely for a white person to donate to a political candidate. And yes, that is an inference that white voters are more likely to donate to a white candidate, and that non-white voters would be more likely to donate to non-white candidates. That's a very slippery line to go down, and I'm in disagreement with that, but there is the argument, as asked.

I, personally, think the biggest tragedy in all of this is that Rosario Dawson is dating him. Damn Rosario, what you doing with this pathetic excuse for a man?

Interracial political donations should be banned. Only white people can donate to a white candidate. Only black people can donate to a black candidate, ...

Political appropriation must end now.

A White candidate that accepts donations from a POC is basically once again the white oppressors steaaling money from the POC communities and silencing them by taking away all their funding.

A White donor that donates to a black candidate is once again an example of how the white oppressor uses money and privilege to control the POC. Basically white supremacy.

Oh, and I'm sure stats like this one can be safely ignored:

New polling in South Carolina places Booker among the top five candidates, but his support among black voters is in the low single digits.

Can you really play the race card when members of your own race aren't voting for you either?

It's going to be funny when the Impeachment trial pulls people of color off the campaign trail to deal with Nancy Pelosi's urgent articles of Impeachment she sat on for a month.

Senator Cory Booker, African American.
Senator Bernie Sanders, Jewish American
Senator Elizabeth Warren, Native American

The Democrats are not sending their best.

Let's be real. This googly eyed Carlton Banks isn't fooling anyone. He keeps talking about his community being impoverished but he is the son of affluent IBM employees that grew up in a rich neighborhood. He claims he lives in a low income area but nobody ever sees him at his $450k home in Newark NJ. Dating Rosario Beardson isn't fooling anyone either. He has very little support because he isn't genuine in the slightest, nor does he have any actual appeal.

I guess the only people who aren’t racist are the ones who would vote for him exclusively because of his race?
