“Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) reportedly said Democrats don’t need ’any more black faces that don’t want to be a black voice’ during a liberal Netroots Nation conference on Sunday, a comment that comes as racial politics threaten to divide the party. The Washington Post reports Pressley said she’s not interested in bringing ‘a chair to an old table.’ ‘This is the time to shake that table. … We don’t need any more brown faces that don’t want to be a brown voice,’ Pressley reportedly said during the event. ‘We don’t need any more black faces that don’t want to be a black voice.’”
