    Kamala Harris was the best polling non-white candidate and had qualified for the next debate, but she just dropped out. The originally very diverse field of Democratic candidates could very well be represented by 4 white men and 2 white women on the next debate stage unless Booker, Castro, Gabbard, or Yang can make some advances in the polling before then. Only Biden, Bernie, Warren, Buttieg, Klobuchar, and Steyer have currently qualified.

    Cory Booker's comment:


    Castro's comment:



    My thoughts on it are the DNC opened the field vast and wide for candidates. From polling, they have surmised where the support lies; and that support happens to be for policies backed by politicians who happen to be white. I don't think anything about this was racist in its methodology. DNC needs to start trimming down the overwelming field, so that people who aren't 100% behind one of the certain candidates can better see their pros and cons make a decision on who to vote for of the more supported candidates.

    Yeah, going down the path of suggesting your own base is racist will work out really well...

    Well it's all about the polls, the voting, the support. That's what they say, so if it so happened to be "all white" then it's just the way it turned out. Booker had no different an opportunity than Mayor Pete, Castro no different than Bernie, etc.

    what I don't get is why black people love biden. I mean they love him. Anyone care to speculate on why?

    You aren't suggesting that elections should be decided purely on merit do you?

    It is easy to see that the Liberals are the racists.

    Obama connection, maybe? It is weird, because he's always gaffing it up with unintentional racism.

    He relates how his childhood was just like theirs (in his eyes anyway, ha). Non-white support for Trump is increasing BTW.

    Association with Obama is the only thing that explains it.

    Biden wrote (or was it Co founded?) the 94 crime bill that hammered inner city communities. Maybe it's because Biden actually panders less to them than someone like Kamala, Warren, or Bernie has been doing and the voters respect that more?

    Why does the race of a candidate matter?

    Yea it may be all white but the polls make up a pretty accurate picture of the diverse group of people who go and vote so that shouldn’t be a problem. If black voters backed Biden over Booker, that shouldn’t be seen as problematic from a racial aspect. Sometimes the rhetoric used is we need to see a forced quota for certain things and I don’t think that applies well here.

    Man, liberals are so obsessed with race. That's why they keep making these threads about how Democrats are racist and that's why they have so many candidates of color/why they don't have enough candidates of color.

    You'd think they'd be more concerned with their ratio of Billionaires to Non Billionaires running

    No no, see, if a black voter supports Biden over Booker, he is an Uncle Tom, obviously.

    The failure to see that the Democratic primary is rife with false consciousness is tantamount to hateful bigotry.

    Which do you think is a bigger deal that shows an obsession. Me, a nobody, making a thread on a karate forum about it to pass the time at work

    Or two presidential candidates tweeting about the issue, one of them bringing it up on a major cable news network?
