DNC Chair: Democrats Should Not Take Advantage Of African Americans
President Barack Obama is facing tough criticism from prominent Black leaders who said he has forgotten the poor. This onslaught makes the work of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Black vote more significant than ever for the 2012 presidential race.
During a roundtable discussion at the committee’s headquarters in Washington, D.C., DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla.) said the Democrat Party should not use Blacks just for a vote in the 2012 election. Instead, she said, members should get to know the community and fight against voter suppression laws that affect not just African Americans, but everyone.
