Cynthia Mckinney excerpt #2

” Not a word has been mentioned in this political season about the disparities that exist within our country with the recognition that public policy can
erase them! And even though for the first time a woman and an African-American were being taken seriously in national primaries, a real discussion of race and gender has been studiously avoided on all sides. At a time when the United States is under review, itself, by the United Nations for its poor record on domestic respect for human rights, particularly in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, a real discussion of race and gender is needed now more than ever.”
