Oh yeah, he's a real gem:
Around 2:30 A.M., there was a commotion on the dance floor. According to Williams, somebody was shouting,“He’s got a gun!” Following a crowd into the club’s garage, Williams discovered that Grimm and the husband had returned, and Grimm was holding a weapon. Grimm was “carrying on like a madman,” Williams said.“He’s screaming,‘I’m gonna fuckin’ kill him.’ So I said to him,‘Who are you?’ He put the gun back in his waist and said,‘I’m a fucking F.B.I. agent, ain’t nobody gonna threaten me.’”
Grimm left the club, but at 4 A.M., just before the club closed, he returned again, according to Williams, this time with another F.B.I. agent and a group of N.Y.P.D. officers. Grimm had told the police that he had been assaulted by the estranged husband and his friends. Williams said that Grimm took command of the scene, and refused to let the remaining patrons and employees leave.“Everybody get up against the fucking wall,” Williams recalled him saying.“The F.B.I. is in control.” Then Grimm, who apparently wanted to find the man with whom he’d had the original altercation, said something that Williams said he’ll never forget:“All the white people get out of here.”

you can try to spin it all you want, but when a black person goes on FOX and forwards right wing myths so he can bolster the right wing view of black people, and puts FOX money in his pocket for doing it, that person will be called a Tom by any black person who has the misfortune to have heard his words.

Not true, white on black is pretty evenly divided with Rep having a marginal lead-couple percentage points.
Black on white is titled to progressives.
So, Chris Rock is your go to man for political science?
I'll go with the opinion of a person that is the target of the racists & not a person who continually protects & defends racists.

Rock's statement happens to be an accurate summary of racism in America.

Also, any other black Democrat, the likes of Charlie Rangle or Ezekiel Cummings, wouldn't have stood a chance. It had to be a cool, young, GQ-looking black guy.

But a little history. In 1888, Frederick Douglass was invited to speak at the Republican National Convention and received one vote so, technically, he was the first black presidential nominee and a Republican.

In 1904, George Edwin Taylor, ran as a black Democrat at the same time Southern Democrats were enacting laws that disfranchised most black voters and were imposing segregation through “Jim Crow” laws. Not a good time to run as a black president.

Also, Northern Democrats were unwilling (or unable) to control their Southern counterparts and Taylor abandoned the party.

(It was a time when lynching was creeping northward and "scientific" racism was gaining acceptance within the nation’s intellectual and scientific community. So much for "science" being the "be all and end all" for the liberal "intellectual" gullible about evolution and global warming.)

In 1972, Shirley Chisholm, a Democrat, ran for the presidency.

In 1984 and 1988, Jesse Jackson was the first black candidate to run nationwide.

In 2004, Carol Moseley Braun and Al Sharpton were unsuccessful candidates in the Democratic primaries.

Like I said, it had to be a cool, young, GQ-looking black guy. Enter Barack Obama!

Right?! She repeatedly claims that liberals "use Christianity to pursue an agenda" while constantly claiming the conservative agenda is Christ-like. She can't possibly get more illogical and hypocritical. But that is what I have come to expect of religious fanatics...most of whom described themselves as former "sinners".

So how much has the intolerant progressives effected?

Well their intolerance is now making science fiction political.

"Politics don't belong in science fiction"

"There was a time when science fiction was a place to explore new ideas, free of the conventional wisdom of staid, "mundane" society, a place where speculation replaced group think, and where writers as different as libertarian-leaning Robert Heinlein, and left-leaning Isaac Asimov and Arthur Clarke would share readers, magazines, and conventions

But then, there was a time when that sort of openness characterized much of American intellectual life. That time seems to be over, judging by the latest science fiction dust-up. Now, apparently, a writer's politics are the most important thing, and authors with the wrong politics are no longer acceptable, at least to a loud crowd that has apparently colonized much of the world of science fiction fandom"
