A Texas Democrat Speaks

THE DIVIDE between Black and Brown in Texas. Reality or myth? David Kirk, the former mayor of Dallas who won the Texas Democratic nomination for the US Senate, says:

As I travelled across Texas, I talked about how I had governed in Dallas, building coalitions and including people of all faiths and ethnicities. I campaigned hard in the Rio Grande Valley, along the US-Mexico border. And despite all the talk about a so-called black/brown divide, I took a majority of the Hispanic vote, beat a Hispanic Democrat and claimed the Democratic nomination.
