The California Democrat doesn’t think African-Americans should start their own political party yet, but leaves the door open to the possibility.
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) left the door open for African-Americans forming their own political party during a during a radio interview on “The Breakfast Club” on Monday.
A host on “The Breakfast Club” asked Waters if she thought that African-Americans should start their own political party.
“No, not at this point,” Waters responded. “You’ve got to show that you’re willing and you’re able to put the numbers together and exercise your influence. We’re still not voting our influence yet.”
Waters then offered an alternative to African-Americans forming their own political party, saying African-Americans need to organize and exercise their power within the Democratic Party.
“We should go to the conventions. We should be delegates. We should run for office. Do all of that, and then you can raise that kind of question – whether or not we’re strong enough to talk about organizing another party,” Waters concluded.
Waters’ answer seems to leave the door open for an African-American-only party and possibly forming it herself.
