$ = Voice. Sometimes.

According to Afro-Netizen, Dean, Kerry, and Bush all relied heavily upon campaign contributions by upper middle class white people. In fact, they actively solicited contributions from wealthy, predominately white neighborhoods. Both of our major parties lean towards the right (they say "middle," but the middle is steadily drifting toward wacko fundie-land), and both seriously undervalue people of color. Afro-Netizen is supporting a survey of black campaign contributors, to see where they place their financial support. I think this is a great idea, for many reasons, so I encourage everyone who can to pitch in.
