    First you admit, correctly, that we don't know what happened.  But then you claim it "was serious enough for Donna to make a stink about it. To which I praise her."  If you don't know what happened, how can you know it was serious or her actions were praisworthy?

    I'm starting to wonder about your sincerity, especially since this:

    Tactless... (none / 0)

    Not racist but only identifies Blacks...

    ...was your first comment on this thread, which you've now contradicted repeatedly.  

    •  I read it again (none)
      First time I could believe that Kos would put something like that on the front page... but when I read it over again didn't add up.

      Well it had to be serious for Donna to make such a public stink. If it wasn't I am sure she would not have risked her job.

    •  It was serious (none)
      This is where facts come in and we realize that this is another fake story... so I guess the Deep Throat forgot to mention this part?

      my comment above :

      Moore, who served as White House political director in the Clinton administration from 1997 to 2000, says that during her tenure as chief operating officer at the DNC from early 2001 until August 2002, people of color made up at least half of the staff.

      According to DNC officials, Blacks made up approximately 30 percent of the 170-member staff in 2001. But, with a series of layoffs, the staff is now down to 94 people, 26 of whom are Black (22 percent). An additional reduction of 10 would have taken the number of Blacks down to only 16 or 13 percent of the staff.

      Meanwhile, Blacks continue to give 80 percent to 90 percent of its vote to Democrats.
