The Black Political Review

President Clinton’s sharp criticism of Sen. Barack Obama has cost his wife any chance of wooing African-American voters in this Democratic Campaign. In fact, the former president is publicly admiting how damaging his vocal support of Hillary (i.e. South Carolina Primary) has been. 

Douglas Wilder (1st African-American Governor in USA/Virginia) is not ready to forgive or forget the comments of Bill Clinton. “Barack Obama is not a fairy tale. He is real,” said Wilder. He is on record stating that he was deeply offended and shocked by Clinton’s comments. “It’s not just me (who) feels that; any number of people feel that,” Wilder said. “A time comes and a time goes. The president has had his time.”

Wilder holds tremendous influence in the state which is holding a primary Tuesday, February 12. He is the grandson of former slaves and was elected Governor in 1989. Currently, Wilder is the Mayor of Richmond.

    The Associated Press’ choice of words was the topic of my most recent post. The media has framed this political discussion in a racial context, which serves to continue Bill Clinton’s dismissal of Obama’s success.

    It is opined that Bill Clinton committed racist hate crimes, and I am not free to say anything further about it.
