Black Activists Condemn Senate Leader Harry Reid Playing the Race Card in Health Care Debate
Date:12/8/2009

"Why is history so confusing to Harry Reid?," asked Project 21 Chairman Mychal Massie. "Six of the nine original planks of the Republican Party at its inception in 1856 were based on opposition to slavery and promoting civ
