Hillary’s hypocrisy on ‘black folks’

What will it take for Democrats to lose the 95 percent black vote?

Hacked email to and from staffers at the Democratic National Committee and to and from John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, shows she cares far more about the black vote than black voters.

Concern for lack of diversity: One email, three months before she announced her presidential candidacy, shows Clinton’s future campaign staff mocking the criticism that it lacks racial diversity. Her then-spokesperson and future traveling press secretary Nick Merrill dismissively joked that former Bill Clinton chief of staff and future Hillary Clinton campaign director Robby Mook “claims he’s 1/16th Apache, so we should be all set.”

Earlier this year, “Frank” (identified by WikiLeaks as fwj77@comcast.net, and reported by RT.com to be Frank White Jr., who raised $2.3 million for Barack Obama in 2012) wrote to Podesta about courting black votes: “I’m hearing the same complaint in political circles that I continue to hear while fundraising. ‘The campaign doesn’t value black folks and takes us for granted.’ Can I make a suggestion? A black campaign vice chair or senior adviser would go a long way during the primary and send the message that Hillary puts her actions where her mouth is, and actually does appreciate the black vote.” Podesta replied: “Right now I think we should do this right after Super Tuesday.”

“Birtherism”: Clinton routinely attacks Donald Trump for what she calls the “racist lie” that Obama is a Muslim from Kenya. Yet a 2008 memo between a polling analyst and several people close to Clinton’s campaign – including Podesta – listed several “negatives” of her opponent, then-Sen. Obama, included the following: “Obama (owe-BAHM-uh)’s father was a Muslim and Obama grew up among Muslims in the world’s most populous Islamic country.” Just weeks ago, James Asher, former Washington bureau chief for McClatchy news, stated that during the 2008 campaign long-time Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal told him to investigate Obama’s African birthplace: “Blumenthal visited the Washington Bureau of McClatchy, where he and I met in my office. During that conversation and in subsequent communications, we discussed a number of matters related to Obama. He encouraged McClatchy to do stories related to Obama and his connections to Kenya.”

Ridiculing an “African-American sounding” name: Another DNC email chain shows staffers making fun of the name of a black woman named LaQueenia. Why is this noteworthy?

In recent years some academic experiments purport to show racism by showing how prospective employers discriminate against “African-American sounding names.” Never mind the same employers show similar reluctance to hire those with “white-sounding names” like “Emily” and “Todd.” And never mind that employers located in black neighborhoods also showed reluctance to hire those with “African-American sounding names.” So, if it’s “racist” to draw a negative inference from a “black-sounding name,” what is it to mock such a name?
