Jorge Ramos is an activist not a journalist but, he is spot on here. Here, he asks DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz about the lack of diversity on stage at last night’s debate. She really didn’t have a good answer.
“Does the Democratic Party– when I was watching the debate, what I was thinking was the Democratic Party lacked diversity,” Ramos said. “I didn’t see a Latino, or an African-American, or an Asian on that stage.”
“First of all, our president of the United States, who is a Democrat, is African-American. So certainly we have an absolute demonstration of commitment to diversity, because out party nominated the first African-American and then Americans elected him not once, but twice,” Wasserman Schultz responded.
“If you look at our party up and down the ballot, from the way that we select delegates, to the way we elect member of the Democratic National Committee, to the elected officials and the diversity that we have in this country, there is overwhelmingly more diversity…”
Too bad he didn’t ask why policies from the Obama administration hurt the poor and middle class the most.
