From New York Post…
Public-advocate candidate Bill de Blasio has outraged black politicians and many of his own constituents by sending targeted mailings to African-American neighborhoods featuring pictures of his interracial family, sources told The Post.
Most of the ads mailed to predominantly white areas had no pictures or just showed photos of the candidate, the sources said.
“The insulting part of it is that if you want to appeal to the black community, then appeal to us based upon our issues, not based upon who you’re married to,” said City Councilman Charles Barron (D-Brooklyn).
De Blasio, whose campaign denied ethnic targeting, is a councilman who represents central Brooklyn. He’s white and his wife, Chirlane, is black.
Up to six of his mailers showcased Chirlane. At least one featured photos of their two children, a 14-year-old girl and an 11-year-old boy.
One of the ads reads, “Meet the de Blasios” and offers a picture of his family and a message from his wife on the back.
Another has a message from his wife simply saying, “He gets it.”
“This is the one I’ve heard so many black women complain about,” said one source.
The irony here is that City Councilman Charles Barron is a militant anti-white bigot who belonged to the Black Panthers. As recent as 2005, he stated “Whites have too much power in New York City.” Barron has not only publicly praised the murderous dictator of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, he invited Mugabe to NYC city hall for a meeting in 2002!
The bottom line is that no amount of pandering and grovelling, or even marrying a black wife, will win a white candidate long term black loyalty. Once a black candidate enters the race, leftists like de Blasios will get the Clinton treatment.
