He seems to be a smart white man with minimal racial sensitivities.

To get the Democratic Party nomination, he has to gain black trust and, to do that he has a lot of explaining to do.

I think the media's much-hyped Doogie Howser, Boy Mayor, Show is about over.

Buttigieg is unqualified to run for President. His record in South Bend is terrible. He also callously pushed gentrification which penalizes the poorest in a community - in his case people of color.

Buttigieg is a distraction and I've grown very tired of having to endure pundits on CNN and MSNBC vaunting the merits of this nonentity while ignoring more serious candidates.

Enough of this. Let him run for Congress or some statewide position if he is such a media-proclaimed "Star". Though the last time he tried to run for Indiana State Treasurer he lost by almost 40%. Ca

That is total nonsense, this guy is just as qualified as anyone else. Some may argue that he is more qualified than most.

He’s definitely a very smart guy who has impressed me with his logical way of answering question, but like most white politicians he has a blind spot regarding AAs and to make it in Democratic Party that’s a problem.

Same as with Sanders.

Even Hillary couldn’t even get out those extra AAs to get her over the hump in the presidential elections.

I hope those African Americans who withheld their vote from Hilary are doing better under Trump than they would have under Hilary!!!

If they are in the top 1% when it comes to income then kudos to them because they chose wisely.If as I suspect they are in the bottom 30% then they are JACKASSES who I have ZERO SYMPATHY and a DEAF EAR to their whining about having to pay increased money back to the Feds this spring.

You are badly mistaken and it is a pity you can't see your error.

It is Hillary and the democratic establishment that gave as Trump. She couldn't beat an idiot, uneducated, vile and empty brain trash like Trump, well then don't blame no one else.

Well I do give her credit for at least accepting blame post election.
