Partnering with a New Generation

I absolutely agree with Dean's statement on the need for the party to deeply partner and learn from the African American progressives. If anyone can recommend good African American progressive bloggers/authors send them my way....Here this is from the AP news story:

"Taking black voters for granted is a long-standing problem for the party that dates to the 1960s, said Dean, who promised changes in strategy even as he cited diversity at the top of the Democratic National Committee.

"African-Americans are annoyed with the Democratic Party because we ask them for their votes four weeks before the election instead of being in the community now and that's a mistake I'm trying to fix," he said.

"There's a new generation of African-American leaders and a new generation of African-Americans. We can't go out and say could you vote for us because we were so helpful during the civil rights era."
