While admitting there wasn’t quite enough support for any such effort as of yet, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) refused to rule out a future effort to create an all-black political party.
Waters, who has a penchant for calling everyone she disagrees with politically a ‘racist,’ seems to be willing to look at the notion of political segregation.
Which is clearly and overtly racist.

To be clear, she’s not saying an all-single race political party is a bad idea, she’s just saying that there hasn’t been a strong enough cohesive unit to create one. Yet.
Via the Daily Caller:
California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters wouldn’t rule out the concept of an all-black political party when asked about it on Monday.
“We still are not voting our influence yet,” she continued. “What we should do is organize our power, exercise our power, particularly in the Democratic Party because that’s where most of us are.”
Waters then suggested that when black people are “strong enough” they may branch out into their own party.
She explained that after African-Americans begin to participate in politics more, “then you can raise that kind of question–whether we are strong enough to talk about organizing another party.”
But that’s not racist or anything.

Imagine for a moment, had someone like Dr. Ben Carson suggested the black community was not engaged in politics enough. Mad Maxine would have been all over him, threatening to “take his a** apart.”
When are they going to get rid of this racist? She should be for all of us Americans, no matter our skin color. She is in our government.

Waters very recently accused liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz of being racist for suggesting that Washington, DC is not a good location for a grand jury on the Trump administration because it has a “ethnic and racial composition” not favorable to the President.
Now she’s considering a political party that only has an ‘ethnic and racial composition’ that benefits one race. Waters appears to struggle with an understanding of the definition of racism.
For his part, Dershowitz blasted Waters by saying “she tosses around that term (racist) so promiscuously that it dilutes the term.”
“She hurts her own cause, because she’s crying wolf,” he added.
