A great promotional campaign by an advertising firm in New York City named “Grey NYC” I believe are trying to deliver the message that the electorate should cast their votes based on the candidates’ policies and ignore their racial differences.
So here is a clip of Father Michael Pfleger, speaking Sunday at the Trinity United Church of Christ, where he said Hilary Clinton was a white supremacist who believed she would win the nomination because of “white entitlement.” I wonder if this will be a lingering issue as Pfleger has been a noted spiritual advisor for Barack Obama for decades while he has lived in Chicago. Even though he has since apologized for his words, these types of problems continue to linger on for Obama and will start to stick sooner or later.
Any comments or thoughts on what the guy said? Makes interesting points regardless of the matter he said it in… I’m not sure there really is a proper way to say what he said.
Here is a short text of the most controversial part of his speaking…
I really believe that she just always thought ‘This is mine’. ‘I’m Bill’s wife. I’m WHITE. And this is mine. And I jus’ gotta get up. And step into the plate. And then out of nowhere came, ‘Hey, I’m Barack Obama.’ And she said: ‘Oh, damn!’ WHERE DID YOU COME FROM!?!?! I’M WHITE! I’M ENTITLED! THERE’S A BLACK MAN STEALING MY SHOW. SHE WASN’T THE ONLY ONE CRYING! THERE WAS A WHOLE LOTTA WHITE PEOPLE CRYING!
