The silence concerning the Jena Six is proof that all those macaca posts were just hypocritical opportunistic rants written by bloggers with only a passing interest in racial justice.
Black voters are the most important group in the Democratic coalition.
I'm not sure all the other coalitions and special interests that together make up the democratic party would agree with Alice.
