It made for fairly gripping stuff last night when Michael Myers and Al Vann took on the issue of race in the 11th district election.
Myers accused Vann of “racial hustling” for calling on David Yassky, the only white candidate in the field, to withdraw.
Vann responded that we are not yet at the day where a decision in this race can be based soley on qualifications.
Of course you bring your qualifications to the table and the best person wins. However, there is a history to that district, and other Voting Rights districts, that is different–it’s exceptional.
Whose interpretation is right?
