Andrew Young, former civil rights leader from the 60’s, comes off as a tool for the Clinton campaign in an interview he gave over the weekend. In a comment that would have the head of anyone white who said it, Young basically called Barack Obama not black enough to be black, whatever the hell that means, when he said “Bill (Clinton) is every bit as black as Obama.”
He went on to say (jokingly, he said after), “He’s (Clinton again) probably gone with more black women than Barack.”
So Barack isn’t black enough, but Bubba is? And the number of black women you’ve slept with is somehow an indication of blackness? Joking or not, the thought occurred to him. From the Left, silence. From the Clinton campaign, silence, they probably know it’s true about the sleeping with since Obama is happily married and Bill is married to Hillary.
“There are more black people that Bill and Hillary lean on,” Young said. “You cannot be president alone. … To put a brother in there by himself is to set him up for crucifixion. His time will come and the world will be ready for a visionary leadership.”
So according to Andrew Young, the number of black people you ask for advice makes you more black than actually being black?
Ignorance like this is what Martin Luther King marched against. He must be spinning in his grave knowing people have taken his words and ideals to this point.
