    Carol Moseley Braun is a Racist


    Carol Moseley Braun formally announced her campaign for mayor of Chicago on Nov. 20, 2010 at Northerly Island along the city’s lakefront.


    “Surprised.”
    No, even better: “quite surprised.”
    See, that’s why I revere Carol Moseley Braun, in an ironic but very real sense, and will miss her when she returns to the deep obscurity she popped out of to stage her quixotic quest for mayor. Because she can say things like “I was quite surprised” after state Sen. James Meeks dropped out of the mayoral race last week.
    Moseley Braun, the former senator, former ambassador, and current would-be mayor, was caught off guard when the pastor of the Salem Baptist Church took his ball and went home, while even third-rate pundits who live in the suburbs saw this coming a mile away.
    From this column exactly 11, count ’em, 11 weeks ago:
    “This is Meeks’ way of dropping out of the race,” I wrote, on Oct. 11, after Meeks, in the first of a series of jaw-dropping gaffes, vowed that he would keep his day job running a mega-church after he was elected mayor — a premise that might have pleased the flock “but, to non-parishioners, it seems a preacher-slick way of saying, ‘I quit.’”

    Re: Carol Moseley Braun is a Racist

    When Richard M. Daley announced that he would not run for re-election as mayor of Chicago, a whole gaggle of politicians announced their candidacy including many local and state black politicians. Coming out of the gate, former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel had the best polling numbers. A black voting-rights advocate then filed a complaint that Emanuel has lived in Washington for the past two years and is thus no longer a resident of Chicago. The Election Commission held a hearing and ruled that Emanuel did not lose his city residency while serving as Obama's Chief of Staff in D.C.

    Enter Jesse Jackson and the local black caucus. He basically said that too many black candidates ruined the chances of an Afro-American winning the mayoral election. He urged black candidates to withdraw until there remained only one black candidate. And that is exactly what happened. The only Afro-American now remaining is former US Senator Carol Moseley Braun. Rev. Jackson has also called on the president to refrain from publicly supporting Emanuel, because Jackson knows that campaign support from Barack Obama (POTUS and former Illinois state senator) would most likely fracture the Chicago black vote.

    There is an element of racism in this election, but it didn't originate with Braun. Draw your own conclusions.

    Will the day ever come when we don't have the likes of the black caucuses, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton pointing out a person's skin color at every turn?
    BTW, I have no love for dead fish Rahm Emanuel. He creeps me out almost as much as Chicago politics.

    Re: Carol Moseley Braun is a Racist

    Because this reporter has a negative (yet correct) opinion of Braun, the blacks do this.....



    On Tuesday, Dec. 28th at 12 Noon a cross section of leadership from the Black coommunity will stage a public demonstration and press conference against the Chicago Sun-Times newspaper at 350 N. Orleans near the Chicago River. African-American clergy, business owners and community leaders expressed outrage over a column written by Neil Steinberg in the Monday edition of the paper.

    The column ridiculed mayoral candidate Carol Moseley Braun, Chicago's first Black Mayor Harold Washington, as well as other black politicians, and the newspaper, N'DIGO. Protesters are calling for Steinberg's dismissal and are asking for a meeting with the Sun-Times editorial board regarding allegations that while The Sun Times enjoys significant financial support from majority Black communities that the paper does not reflect the proper staffing of Black reporters or sensitivity when covering Black community issues.

    One way or another, Chicago will have an idiot for mayor.
