Ms. Alexander is the author of one of the most important books on the
history and current status of Black America - The New Jim Crow - referring
to the devastating effect of mass and disproportionate incarceration on
Black America. She takes apart the notion that Bill Clinton was in any way
a friend of Blacks, pointing out that he represented the "New Democrats"
who were reaching out to white former Democrats who had left the party,
feeling that it was too pro-Black. Clinton;s policies were meant to show
this demographic that they should come home to a party that was just as
racist as the Republicans, only employing "kinder and gentler" rhetoric.
She really nails the bastard!

The Greens should run her - she'd make a great presidential candidate that
could connect with Black America in a way that a veryb decent 63 year old
white woman like Jill Stein cannot..
