Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) reportedly said Democrats don’t need “more black faces that don’t want to be a black voice” during a liberal Netroots Nation conference on Sunday, a comment that comes as racial politics threaten to divide the party.

The Washington Post reports Pressley said she’s not interested in bringing “a chair to an old table.”

“This is the time to shake that table. . . . We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice,” Pressley reportedly said during the event. “We don’t need any more black faces that don’t want to be a black voice.”

Pressley’s spokeswoman, Lina Francis, told the Post the congresswoman was making the point that “diversity at the table doesn’t matter if there’s not real diversity in policy.” The Hill has reached out to Pressley’s office.

Pressley’s comments followed a tumultuous week of Democratic infighting, as establishment Democrats continue to clash with a new wave of elected progressives in the party. More

In other words, if Democrats aren’t radical enough for us, then they’re Uncle Toms. It’s all ‘black’ this, ‘brown’ this, and ‘white’ this, with them. And they call us racist?

Blatant racism is okay when spewed by racists as long as they are Democrats. How long will non-racist Democrats tolerate this and sit silent?
