Is he wrong?

In the context of trying to get the Democratic nomination, does it matter if he is right or wrong?

This is discounting the many minority teachers and activists who work hard every day in those impoverished areas. 

But I understand what he's saying here.

While getting their ass kicked by students. I just watched a Netflix movie about a teacher who flunked a kid who stabbed him in an inner city school. A sobering statistic quoted at the end of the movie indicated that one in nine teachers are attacked by students. Tough to educate anyone in that environment.

He definitely won't get the nomination saying things like that.  The only answer democrats are willing to entertain for why inner city blacks are not doing well is racism and lack of funding (caused by even more racism).  You can't even discuss any other contributing factors or you are.....wait for it.....racist.

Peter's supporters are going back to the "Black people don't like him because he's gay" trope.

I don't get the attraction of Buttigieg over someone like Yang or even Harris, at least not to those poll numbers shown.  I've listened to a couple different podcasts of Yang and he comes across as a solid candidate.  I guess i need to listen to Buttigieg a little more.  Biden and Warren are both going to be tough outs in the primary.

So Peter created a PAC to help Democrats in the 2018 midterms... and then spent almost all of the money turning himself into a Presidential candidate.

Not sure why Yang hasn't made a dent in the polls. I suspect it's because he's very young and inexperienced. However, that guy is damn smart and has ideas. The one I like best is his beating the drum on the need for the U.S. to start reinventing its economy in light of changing demographics, the environment and the like. I couldn't possibly put it as persuasively as he does but everything he says in that regard makes total sense yet nobody except maybe Sherrod Brown is saying anything similar.

Jesus H. Christ the Democrats are incapable of supporting the best possible candidates. :pitchforks:

I have Bloomberg on my SHIT list.

Nothing like running an eleventh hour campaign which can't possibly do anything more than help Lizzie Warren and Bernie Sanders.

I'd be cautious of listening to others on twitter or whatever trashing candidates.  You will fall into the same head +++++ games the Russians want you to hear.  Study and listen to the candidates and form your own opinions.  Use your own brain power unlike the drumph rubes that are permanently +++++ed in the head by those daily shows like "fox & rubes".

Carry on....
