  1. Its good to see women especially Black women stepping up to the political plate to replace the same old same olde stale politico white bread way past it's "best before expiry date."

  2. Women of color…what about white women?why can’t you include all women? I hope this hack party continues with their divisive identity politics. All you are doing is making for a smooth run in 2020 for trump

  3. As usual, lot of talk and pandering to black and latino voters, while Asian, middle eastern, and Native Americans don't have anyone concerned about their struggles. Yet the Dem party always feels entitled to their vote.

  4. Nothing more pretentious than a black woman using the term"women of color " instead of black . I can give the white folks a pass . But not the black folks.

  5. I find it both ironic and extremely hypocritical of Hillary Clinton to call for Donald Trump to be held accountable for committing federal crimes when there is strong evidence that she herself committed numerous federal crimes during her time as Secretary of State for the United States.

  6. Word: if you vote for a democrat in 2020, you have elected a wolf in sheep's clothing. Why? Because the left will pull him or her into socialism whether they like it or not, and every dem running for office knows this to be true but lies about it in order to get elected. BTW: did you know it's legal (yes legal!) for a politician to lie to you? The far left (anyone running for office belonging to the democratic party because they are not as they present) is especially good at this because the next election is an agenda driven election for them that they have pinned their political souls to.

  7. Democrats need to drop this identity politics nonsense immediately unless the want to give Trump a second term! Did Democrats learn nothing from "I'm with her" and how it lost to the worst president in history? Leave identity politics behind and focus on policies. All humans deserve healthcare. All full-time workers deserve a living wage. This is simple stuff and Democrats seem to want to screw it up by playing race and gender cards. Please do not hand this to Trump!

  8. Stand strong Demoracts and Independent Candidates, it's time to get democracy back, no more Dictactor ship, white supremacy or hatred, lies. I have contacted the Sentors and Congressmen for my state.

  9. Of course they want to focus on colour. They just want them to go out and vote for the democrats. That's ALL they care about.

  10. DEMOCRAT's WELCOME ALL PEOPLE INTO THE TENT BUT KEEP YOUR HAND's TO YOURSELF. IT's BEEN THREE YEAR's AND THE CONGRESS STILL HASN'T SECURED OUR VOTING SYSTEM WHY NOT! I'LL TELL YOU IN 2016 THE G.0.P. USED THEIR DIRTY TRICK's TO STEAL THE ELECTION!! AND THEY WANT TO DO IT AGAIN!!!

  11. THE PEOPLE NEED TO SUE THE PRESIDENT AND CONgress FOR NOT SECURING OUR VOTING SYSTEM! " STOLEN VOTES STOLEN HOPES "

  12. Yawn, the identity politics is so tired. How does the anti-Semite and homophobe Joy Reid still get these gigs on MSNBC

  13. Just ❤️. Kamala Harris. Bright, intelligent, capable, personable, qualified, organized, and would focus on being a POTUS for ALL Americans. Vote Harris 46 for 2020 … America needs unification, repair and leadership! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  14. When will the left stop judging people based on the content
    of their character and focus more on what really matters:
    color of our skin, who we get it on with, religion, and whether
    or not there's anything swinging between our legs? 😃

  15. Hi Nicole.👋.
    Exceptional reporting, Nicole.👍☺👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏.
    Keep on digging, Nicole.👍.
    👉👉Patience democrats, patience.👍.

  16. Not sure who is more privileged on the left, Kamala or Booker.
    Both grew up quite rich and had privilegeds many of us did not have.
    Also, Is Kamala eligible to become president? If so, shouldn't she prove it now ?

  17. Women are trying to find a hero ?
    Abortion is their power
    Divorce is their power
    population is their power
    See too is their power
    What women forget is
    Women are also controlled by Human nature
    and all will not vote the same ???
    I though crooked "H" proved that ???
    Sorry but women are NOT NOT NOT entitled ??
    The cream rises to the TOP ???
    I'll bet the republicans get a women to the top before the dims do because
    Dims think they are entitled
    while the republicans will choose the best ????
    next

  18. If what you care about is the policies that help women of color, Sanders or Warren are 1000x better than Beto O'rourke or Boutigieg. Booker has done a lot for our working class communitiies too. I feel Kamala and Boutigieg live in a privilege bubble, and just talk the talk. They mean well, but they tend to implement poorly thought out policies that they then have to apologize for, unconvincingly. Either is better than Trump, but neither is my first choice. Warren is my first choice, with Sanders an immediate 2nd. And if those two teamed up, they'd be unstoppable.

  19. I love the diversity in the Democratic party. However, I hate the media forcing candidates to cater to specific groups. They just need someone who has a vision and plan to help everyone with emphasis on helping those most in need or disenfranchised.

  20. This commentary almost never mentioned Bernie Sanders and misled the audience with its so-called poll numbers.

    Bernie Sanders is leading all other Democratic candidates by very large margins. Bernie Sanders has been fighting for racial justice for decades including fighting against segregation in the university housing when he was at school and marching with MLK. Bernie’s platform includes all of the support and more for all women and minorities for racial justice, criminal justice and social justice.

    What’s your agenda MSNBC?

  21. "The boys will be white boys"

    Keep pumping out anti white, anti male identity politics. Just don't be surprised when Trump is reelected.

  22. Biden – the poster child for everything the metoo movement is against. 
    Warren – faked her ethnicity for personal gain
    Harris – smoking weed while putting others in jail for the same
    Sanders – sucking up to a party that screwed him over

    Wow what a fantastic field of winners.

  23. Women of color in America have NO IDEA What racism and oppression is. When they leave there house NOT ONCE do they face any "racist" acts. You people are just 1960s civil rights Posers…

  24. She the people is ridiculous. Please stop with the identity politics and as a man of color, I like Trump because he’s kept promises

  25. Women of colour is just another way to play identity politics and divide anericans- it’s women of colour against white women

  26. Why doesn’t anyone ask the question, why is “Beto” not using his real name which is “Robert”, can we trust someone who has a criminal conviction just ten years ago to be president? Where are the actual policies? This is why trump won- because he laid out his policies in detail and so far, one by one, he has kept every promise he made.

  27. I'll tell ya what .
    If you want to hear and know what a strong Black woman looks like .
    Go check out Candace Owens
    She knows what's up.

  28. I had this amazing dream last night. In the dream I had developed this ability to focus on specific things, objects and make them disappear forever. So I was thinking about how ignorant and angry Democrats are destroying this country and I focused my mind on all of them and I made them all disappear forever. It was amazing!! The country's problems disappeared!! Illegal immigration vanished, crime became virtually nonexistent, we balanced the budget and the United States prospered like never before. It was so wonderful!!!

  29. The Democrats like to say conservatives are immoral, but democrats don’t know the first thing about morality. The Democrat party gets their morals from the synagogue of SATAN. They are the party of baby murder, tyranny, and oppression. The party of illegal immigration and the destruction of America. If you support the democrats, you are EVIL and an enemy of America

  30. boggles the Mind. The question of the Hour. Do you know which party didn't want racial equality???

    On this day in 1964, Everett Dirksen (R-IL), the Republican Leader in the U.S. Senate, condemned the Democrats’ 57-day filibuster against the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Leading the Democrats in their opposition to civil rights for African-Americans was Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV). Byrd, who got into politics as a recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan, spoke against the bill for fourteen straight hours. Democrats still call Robert Byrd “the conscience of the Senate.”

    In his speech, Senator Dirksen called on the Democrats to end their filibuster and accept racial equality.
