May 12, 2008 : Tell Clinton to stop Race Baiting
Group: Tell Clinton to Stop ‘Race-Baiting’
By Kate Phillips"
“Senator Clinton’s race-baiting must end today,” said James Rucker, the executive director of ColorOfChange.org, a black-led advocacy group that boasts a membership of 400,000. “She is sowing division and making the outrageous claim that white voters won’t vote for a black candidate. The politics of division now seem to be her core strategy. It’s a strategy where everyone loses; we can do better and we should be able to expect better from Senator Clinton.”
The group cited Mrs. Clinton’s published in an interview in USA Today on Thursday, in which she said: “I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on,” she said in the interview, citing an article by The Associated Press that “found how Senator Obama’s support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me.”
In the interview, she said her comments weren’t intended to be divisive: “These are the people you have to win if you’re a Democrat in sufficient numbers to actually win the election. Everybody knows that.”
The Obama campaign was quick to respond that its candidate had made inroads in the latest contests among white voters, with exit polls showing he did better than, say, in Pennsylvania last month, and called Mrs. Clinton’s remarks disappointing and untrue.
Is Hillary Race Baiting ? Methinks so . In desperation Hillary and Bill are swinging for the fences . I personally think they need to be thrown out of the game . The Clintons have proven again that they are masterful polticians , when appealing for white votes they will throw black voters under the bus . Can you say Sister Souljah ?
