I wonder how a conservative writing a “white agenda” would go over?
WASHINGTON – On Monday, a group of African-American advocacy organizations led by Rev. Al Sharpton and Marc Morial of the National Urban League met to discuss their priorities for President Barack Obama’s second term, with Sharpton declaring, “We cannot sit and ask the president to write an agenda to himself from us.” [...]
Sharpton, the founder of the National Action Network, said there has been “a lot of discussion but no movement toward a consensus agenda” for African-Americans and toward how we “execute some policies” to deal with the “disproportionate impact of the economic recession” and fiscal economic cliff.
“We cannot sit and ask the president to write an agenda to himself from us,” Sharpton said. “It ought to come from us to him or the Congress, from us to him.”
