At some point, political expediency must concede to just doing the right thing. Even if it was not the most strategic political decision, although I think we have proven that it is, standing against bigotry and racism is just the right thing to do. Political power in this country swings back and forth like a pendulum. We win some and we lose some. However, despite our overwhelming shortcomings, America has strived to become a moral compass to guide the world. If Democrats concede this culture war by choosing not to engage, then we risk losing something far more important than an election. This is a fight for the conscience of America, and that is one we cannot afford to lose. Recommendation: Democrats, do the right thing.
