In his Beaumont rally he has a soundbite telling folks not to eat Popeye's for breakfast.
I understand his strategy...
But it's curious.
He also had a Bill Cosby moment.
The only difference is he's potentially in a position were he can actually render aid, and not just chastisement.
I heard one of the talking heads on MSNBC ranting about how ONLY Obama could get away with saying this. In other words....only Obama can get away with telling black folk to get off their lazy azzes by cutting the TV off, stop eating fried chicken, start doing your home work....Yadda Yadda Yadda. Its the "Personal Responsiblity" - you are your own worst enemy black folk- school of thought.
Hell...Bill Cosby might as well be running for President.
lets see....so far Obama did not attend some black events because his white advisers thought it was a bad idea and it might scare white voters. He answerd a question from a black person about the negative impact of immigration on black folk and he called it "scapegoating. He turned down an invitation to the SOBU. He denounced and rejected Farrakahn for the national audience......now this brother is chastising black folk.......
And Negroes on this forum are upset with me for suggesting that he will simply become a proxy for white interest.....
