Andrew Young Race Baiting Against Obama

20 12 2007

Ambassador Andrew Young has clearly lost his mind. In a recent media interview (see below), Amb. Young told an audience “Hillary Clinton first of all has Bill behind her. And Bill is every bit as black as Barack.” He also went on to say and that “Bill has probably gone with more black women than Barack.”

Newsflash: Bill Clinton has already been president twice. If he is trying to gin up support for Hillary, then by all means do your thang. But just be upfront about it. Its fine if people want to support a candidate, but do you have to do it like this? If you are going to support a candidate at all, at least let it be one that is actually running. Senator Hillary Clinton is a formidable candidate in her own right let her stand or fall on her own merit.

But, more importantly, it is absolutely maddening to see a civil rights leader who organized voter drives in the South during the 60’s race bait against any Presidential candidate, but especially against the first viable black Presidential candidate.

Watch it.
