Who’s Really Playing the Race Card in This Election?

According to BOND ACTION, Inc, Founder and President, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, the Obama campaign and its surrogates have knowingly used race as a wedge issue to scare black voters and mischaracterize Republican positions on the issues. Rev. Peterson said today, “If the McCain campaign doesn’t start aggressively combating these false allegations it will cost them the election.” Rev. Peterson pointed to the following examples of Democrats injecting race into this election:

  • On Tuesday, during an appearance on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, Democrat strategist James Carville hinted at riots if Sen. Obama loses the election. 
     
  • Last Monday, Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) said that Republican criticism of Democrats over the nation’s housing crisis is a veiled attack on the poor that’s racially motivated.  
     
  • This week, Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-NY) said, “…They [Republicans] know they can’t win on the issues, so the last resort they have is race and fear.” 
     
  • This week, Rep. Ed Towns (D-NY) recently said, “Racism is alive and well in this country, and McCain and Palin are trying to appeal to that and it’s unfortunate.” 
     
  • September 24, Rep. Alcee Hastings (D-Fla.) speaking to the National Jewish Democratic Council, warned black and Jewish voters to be wary of Sarah Palin because “anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.” 
     
  • Last June, in a speech in Jacksonville, Fla., Sen. Barack Obama told the audience, “[Republicans] They’re going to make you afraid of me…he’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name…did I mention that he’s black?”

Rev. Peterson said, “Democrats are using the same racially charged scare tactics used by white segregationists in the past to antagonize the races. This is shameless and dangerous, and we have a moral duty to point it out.”
