      Virginia Thomas, 54, is a special correspondent for the Daily Caller producing videos of emerging leaders and educators in the public square. Her ear is to the ground outside the Washington Beltway as a social entrepreneur. Previously, she was the founder of LibertyCentral.org (nonprofit for citizen activists), and has worked at The Heritage Foundation, Hillsdale College's Washington office, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the senior levels of the legislative and executive branches of government. She has maintained her midwestern authenticity after 30 years in Washington, D.C. and enjoys motor homing and the Nebraska Cornhuskers with her husband, Justice Clarence Thomas. Her degrees are: Business Communication & Political Science from Creighton University, and J.D. from Creighton Law School (Omaha, NE).

Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) whistle-blower Anita Moncrief urged African-American voters not to allow Revs. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to speak for them. Black voters should instead, she said, make independent decision based on candidates’ qualities other than their skin color.

“One of the things I like to tell black people is that we are not victims,” Moncrief told The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas. “We are not numbers, we are not statistics. We are not pawns.”

Moncrief pointed to Detroit as an example of a city where the policies of Democratic and black politicians have severely hurt voters.

“It is not acceptable, but for some strange reason we do not ask anything of our politicians. We let them come into our community and use us every four years for the election,” she said. “We’re so accepting of the narrative, and we don’t look for ourselves to see what’s really going on.”

“It’s time to stop voting on color.”
