I see Donna Brazile is whining about the mainstream Democratic Presidential candidates' treatment of Al Sharpton. I guess she feels that heartily embracing a flagrant race-baiter would be a good thing for America.

Thankfully, her fears that Republicans are making significant inroads with the traditionally Democratic black electorate are well founded. Why are more black voters listening to the Republican message, or at the very least, a non-Democratic message? I think it directly relates to the substantial rise in the number of black people in the middle class, as confirmed by the last US census. Lessen dependence on government handouts, foster greater self-reliance, and you see a shift away from the Democrats. How does this not make sense to even the most politically challenged liberal meathead?
