Parallel to French Revolution

Don’t know French history very well, but I understand the Revolution devoured itself.  Yesterday’s radicals, eg Robespierre, became today’s guillotined.   Now a candidate for DNC chair says people must shut their mouths if white.  The candidate, Sally Boynton Brown, has not won the chair, nor is it even clear if she has a chance.  Her winning would mark internal self-destruction of the Democratic Party.

Perhaps there could also be fruitful meditation on the paradox of Ms Brown, who says ‘shut their mouth if their white’, is apparently white.  So how can she lead?
