But there is absolutely no doubt that a large part of the commentary on Diane not just during the general election but over the years has been driven by straightforward racism and misogyny and you just have to look in online to see it. It is disgusting and it has got to stop. Frankly it will put young black women off getting involved in politics.feedback
