A Democrat's Defense? Play the Race Card!

HT to Alex C at PAWaterCooler for bringing this into the light:

Goode Tracking

An investigative reporter for Philadelphia’s Fox29 has potentially struck gold.

Cole has made a specialty of following city employees around on the sly, filming them doing things they don’t want made public.

Cole, following [City Councilman Wilson] Goode as he left Council’s chambers, said that he had videos of [chief Legislative aide Latrice] Bryant attending to personal business while she was logged in as working at her City Hall office. The videos include Goode and Bryant entering his home with a case of beer and Bryant leaving Goode’s house on another day at 11:30 a.m., “appearing as if she may have spent the night there.”

Goode, clearly frustrated, turned outside his office door and wagged his finger at Cole, saying: “Now you’re being disrespectful. Leave my office.”

Cole refused, so Goode went into his office and closed the door.

It had started as a troubled day for Goode and Bryant. Cole tried to interview her as she arrived for Council, wearing wrap-around shades indoors, but she grabbed the television-camera lens and gave it a shove. Goode cautioned Cole: “Don’t you ever disrespect a black woman like that again.”

Inside Council chambers, Bryant held up signs drawn with pen on loose-leaf paper. One had a cross through Fox 29, another said “Fox 29 are racist” and a third said “Jeff Cole K.K.K.”

Why does it always have to go racialist?

Far be it for me to question subject verb agreement and grammar, but is “Fox 29 are racist” even correct? I’d go with “Jeff Cole is racist” is better or “Fox 29 is racist.”

The truth of the matter is that neither Fox 29 nor Jeff Cole are racist, they just got too close for comfort to two African-American politicians who instead are going to make it a racial issue instead of a) ignoring it b) dealing with Fox29.

Best part? Now everyone knows, not just Fox 29 viewers.

Because THAT is their only defense and , therefore, you can assume they are guilty of the charges being brought against them.

"Jeff Cole KKK"

Is this what $90,000 of taxpayer dollars buys at City Hall?

That's the easiest and most effective card to play because no one challenges it because they could possibly get labeled a "racist." It's such a joke anymore!

What slays me is that only and I mean ONLY white people are racist.

Those 3 black punks who threw a glass bottle at me and my friends when I was in 6th grade, shouting "Fu*king White Honkies"? Not racist, rather it's the release of pressure for decades and centuries, and millennia of oppression by the white man.

Yeah, and if I say "Fu*king Black Ni&&ers", it's a hate crime.

Give me a break. We're all inherently racist. That being said, It's not racism that is in question, but rather bigotry and hatred. The world could do with a little less of that.

Nah, she was snagged loafing and the only thing that this woman could say in her defense is "it's because I'm black", which I'm frankly getting tired of.

The taxpayers of Philadelphia should be demanding a pink slip here.
