This was unexpected…
The last black Democrat, Deval Patrick has announced that he is ending his campaign for presidency. He stated, “The vote in New Hampshire last night was not enough for us to create the practical wind at the campaign’s back to go on to the next round of voting. So I have decided to suspend my campaign, effective immediately.”
Patrick continued with, “Despite our righteous anger, Democrats don’t have to hate Republicans to be good Democrats. We don’t have to hate business to fight for social justice or to hate police to believe black lives matter. … I say that because, unlike most other candidates, I have actually delivered progressive results using a moderate approach.”
We can’t miss this moment— because failing to engage risks losing a whole lot more than an election in November. Today, we’re suspending our campaign, but not giving up the fight. Read my full statement: pic.twitter.com/wTiNZ8g7xH

His statement on Democrats not having to hate Republicans was a comment made by a wise person who understands that hatred and malice will not bring good. However, there are many Democrats who have yet to heed his words and are bringing down the whole party.
