And he said that America lagged behind the rest of the world in elevating women to leadership roles. It was a gimmick, and Mondale made no secret of it.
    Did Mondale win? In the end it didn't help him either.

    Apparently you are. He is not the first black senator of either party. So why are we celebrating? Also, I not too excited about him because I AM A DEMOCRAT. How come conservative blacks wasn't excited when Obama (The first black President of either party) was elected?


    This should debunk this myth that black people will always vote for black politician no matter what right?

    So why are you guys so excited about them? It feel like the old "Hey I got a black friend" thing.

    I dunno. Why do you care? Seems to me that it isn't us who is fixated on the race thing.

    1) He's the first black senator from the South, since Reconstruction. Get your facts straight.

    2) Obama is the first bi-racial president.

    I remember the Libbos screaming, "racism", everytime someone dared criticize Obama. Hell, y'all still do it. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, you people suddenly want to take race out of the equation.

    So it took a black President to drag open that Southern door for Scott.
