The third Presidential Debate was quite amusing as we watched Mitt Romney dance around the foreign policy issues and grab hold to the president’s coattails and not let go. Like Al Sharpton said, he just needed to survive and that’s what he did…by endorsing Obama’s every move on foreign policy.
But now here comes a super PAC sponsored ad for Romney that puts the less than qualified candidate at the forefront for young African Americans. Two young black people, a man and a woman, are seen in black and white saying that the president, essentially, does not care about the black community:
“What has he done as president?” asks the young black woman.
“And his support of gay marriage is a slap in the face to people of faith,” she adds.
“Cut aid to black colleges,” says the young black male. “Cut aid to black businesses.”
The two conclude their argument saying that President Obama doesn’t respect them. How is it possible that these ideas have been ingrained in such young people, you say? Well, a partnership between Pivot Point, headed by Dave Shemwell and Rev. Wayne Perryman, a local black evangelical pastor in Washington state.
According to The Slate, the two have come together to:
“…communicate to African-American communities that it’s okay to consider switching political parties.”
Shemwell would like the more naive, like Perryman and those featured in the ad, to believe that it’s about political party, but it seems that it’s about race. Why not diversify the young people involved in the ad? Why show them in black and white? While the new PAC only raised $15,000 to construct the ad, it’s showing for nearly nothing on BET. The Slate reported:
“It’s raised less than $15,000, but that’s more than enough to put it on the air in two markets — the Seattle area, where the PAC managers live, and Cleveland. In both markets, it’s playing on BET for next to nothing. I called Dave Shemwell, the scientist who runs the PAC in his spare time. ‘You have no power when people take you for granted,” Shemwell told the Grio. “You only have power when people believe realistically that you’ll seek an alternative if they don’t come through.’ ”
But it appears that Shemwell is exploiting African Americans to complete his sinister agenda against President Obama, not the Democratic party. If not, then, he would be more substantive in his attacks against the president and be more inclusive of all people in his rant and not just African Americans.
Reverend Wayne Perryman, is also the author of Whites, Blacks & Racist Democrats and he calls the black community “a forgotten race.”
“The Democrats take it for granted. They don’t put anything on the table, but they get our vote,” he said. “For all the votes they’re getting, they should have an agenda.”
But where were all of these black conservatives when Reagan and the Bush’s set all of this into motion. The black community’s problems BEGAN with them, yet no one held their feet to the fire as they divested from black America. Go somewhere with this bullcrap, Shemwell and Perryman!
