HOST: “Do you think black people should start their own political party?”

WATERS: “Do what?”

HOST: “Should start their own political party?”

WATERS: “No, not at this point. 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. I think what we should do is organize our power, exercise our power, particularly in the Democratic Party because that’s where most of us are. 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 other party.”
