49. I find discussions of universal issues being sidetracked problematic

 

Race is crucial as an issue. No argument from me.

But there also issues that have less to do with race than of class, economic circumstances and the larger concentration of power and the relationship of the population to government.

We have not a acknowledged those issues to any great extent. That is what Sanders has brought out into the open.

When the middle class, working poor and unemployed poor are being collectively screwed regardless of race creed or color, unifying and pulling together on the basis of shared self-interest is also vital.
