Amy Klobuchar Talks About Her Moderate Message

Amy Klobuchar’s been gaining steam on the campaign trail recently with her moderate message, but on Martin Luther King Day, she was asked if she was the kind of “white moderate” that King once wrote “prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice.” Klobuchar was unequivocal: “No.”

“At the time, there were plenty of whites that would perhaps profess to be helpful to African-Americans but were actually holding back a lot of federal civil rights legislation. That is not me,” the Minnesota senator said at the 2020 Iowa Brown & Black Presidential Forum, presented by VICE News. The forum featured nine Democratic candidates addressing issues of concern to black and Latinx voters.
