Left, right prep for battle royal over Sessions
At The Hill by Alexander Bolton --
Conservative and liberal groups are gearing up for a battle royal over Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions that some activists say will be so explosive, it could even overshadow a fight over Donald Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court.
Nearly 150 outside groups on the left mobilizing to stop Sessions have delivered a stern, no-compromise message to incoming Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).
The groups plan to make Sessions’s past comments about race the defining element in his confirmation battle.
“We’ve already been engaged with Schumer’s office with a real demand that he should stand up and fight and we will fight anyone who seeks to be an enabler for a racist overseeing our Justice Department,” said Rashad Robinson, the executive director of Color of Change, which describes itself as the nation’s largest online racial justice organization.
SHAW: Americans who voted fro Pres Trump made it clear they are tired of hearing about so called racism and hearing empty and false racism complaints. The majority of the country has moved on
and will not pay much attention to the old racism politics. I have wondered why is America's mythical race problem only with maybe half of the 9% of Blacks in the U.S. population ?
Nothing to see here, America has taken a giant step from the false racism problem.
