    I need to keep BC, the effective community organizer, in mind at the next strategy session for my fellow arrogant whites and all the Hispanic people with wealth as we plot the next move in our insidious plan. I just hope we can keep it a secret long enough to bamboozle the lower and moderate income Black Americans ( excluding Melody Hobson, of course). Really.
    If you are as effective as you say, why are you so frustrated? Name calling like a little kid. Who does that.
