Comedy as Policy

by Regis Boff

I will accept any Democrat except Hillary Clinton. I say this even though I know that Republican solutions, in many instances are the right ones. We, Democrats, are clever, and we make successful fun of those who disagree with us, but comedy is not policy. Unless we give up some of the power we wield, there are certain crises that will never be solved. Black people are being crippled by what we do to protect ourselves. They support us seamlessly because of the help we have offered in the past and because we have made them terrified of the Republicans. It is we who are the most dangerous to them.
