Black Man At McCain Rally in Wisconsin Urges McCain To Drive The Message Home

Make sure you watch AT LEAST starting at 2:10 in! Unfortunately it is a CNN clip and they made sure to cut it up but it's there.

And the list goes on...
Tony Rezko
Jerehmiah Wright
Bill Ayers
Farhakkan via Rev. Wright's church Obama attended for 20 years

McCain had his chance back in April when the North Carolina Republican Party ran a gubernatorial campaign ad that included the linking of Obama with Jeremiah Wright. The ad was duly denounced by The New York Times and other deep thinkers as racist.

This was patently absurd. Racism is treating people differently and invidiously on the basis of race. Had any white presidential candidate had a close 20-year association with a white preacher overtly spreading race hatred from the pulpit, that candidate would have been not just universally denounced and deemed unfit for office but written out of polite society entirely.

Obama is a man of first-class intellect and first-class temperament. But his character remains highly suspect. There is a difference between temperament and character. Equanimity is a virtue. Tolerance of the obscene is not.

And because I have been told that I am the "make you think blogger" I want to bring people and ideas to you that I am sure you're not seeing in the mainstream media. Here's a man who has something to say. Here's a BLACK man that has something to say. Why isn't he being given a mainstream platform?

Now even though it's NOT true, I heard and hear "we never see black people on telvision." I was subjected to this idiotic ideology in college in the 1990's. And when I would waste my breath listing shows I saw or newscasters I saw my ENTIRE life on television (although why should I have to think about someone's race at all!!) you know what I heard back? Those shows are caricatures and make blacks look like bafoons OR they're too white.

Well here is a very intelligent black man who THINKS. Here's someone who fits the bill of being black. Here's a man who uses his brain and communicates analytical thinking brilliantly. Why isn't the media giving him a public voice?

Do I agree with every view of this man in the video? NO. Certainly not. But I think he's brilliant and intelligent and analytical and a free thinker and for the most part I do agree with him.

Why doesn't the media want you to see this?

Great clips...both of them. I love the 2nd clip.

I'm so tired of hearing about racism. It's grown out of control. Too black, too white black people...what the hell? Look for an upcoming post on my blog about this!

I wish everyone was exposed to the diversity that actually resides within the McCain camp.
