Statement by Deval Patrick on Tonight's Debate
"Tonight, six Democrats were on the debate stage for over two hours. There were many good ideas from strong candidates, but there was not one question about racism in tonight's debate. Not one.
"Let's face reality. Racism is not all there is to talk about, but when millions of Americans deal with it daily, encouraged by our president, when do we face their truths?"
