NIGER INNIS ON BIDEN’S “CHAINS” REMARK
Statement from Niger Innis of CORE:
“Vice President Biden’s racial demagoguery has hit a new low. With his “They’re going to put y’all back in chains” comment made today at a speech before a majority black audience in Danville, VA, the Vice President of the United States has continued the pattern of mainstream establishment Democrats making a low, gutter appeal to black and brown voters. Trying to scare them to the polls to vote against the Republicans. I call it the Al Sharptonization of the Democratic party. They are doing this because the Obama era record unemployment in black and brown communities, the lost of wealth in the black and brown communities has their base in deep depression. They have an abysmal record to run on. Obama, Pelosi and Reid had control of the Federal Government for 2 years. A Federal Government that (domestically) was already firmly under the Democratic control of Pelosi and Reid, who took over Congress in 2007. In 2007 President Bush was still President, but he was a defacto lame duck, that used whatever political leverage he had left to promote the surge in Iraq.So what does the black and brown community have after the 4 years of Pelosi leadership, 6 years of Reid and 4 years of Obama?
