DNC Chair Candidate: My Job Is To Tell White People When To Shut Their Mouths
On Monday, January 23rd at Washington University, the DNC rallied together in an effort for candidates wanting to become chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Candidate and Idaho Democratic Party Executive Director Sally Boynton Brown pushed for Democrats to offer “training” to educate others on how to be “sensitive” and “how to shut their mouths if they are white.”
“My job is to shut other white people down when they want to interrupt,” Brown said. She continued her charge with: “I’m a white woman, I don’t get it... My job is to listen and be a voice and shut other white people down when they want to interrupt... We pull people in, and they are volunteers. They don’t know anything, and then we send them out to have conversations with people—hard conversations. We promote them to chair of a party where they have power, and they have no clue what they are doing. We have to, at the DNC, provide training. We have to teach them how to communicate, how to be sensitive and how to shut their mouths if they are white. So I think I made my point.”
What will Sally say next??
