Black Face in the White House

As one of the major institutions protecting privilege in the US, the Democratic Party — by putting a black face in the White House — has completed the task of tokenism initiated by the Republican Party.

Not surprisingly, they have all played their roles in keeping democracy down; after all, the rich and powerful who selected them know that hope is an illusion repeatedly swallowed by those desperate for change.
