This past Saturday, Democratic Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio chose to venture into waters that even Angels fear to tread by attempting to inject racial humor into a political event.
Clinton attempted to playfully chide de Blasio regarding the lateness of his endorsement of her political campaign by remarking it “Took you long enough.”
New York City’s Mayor, who is married to activist and poet Chirlane McCray, an African-American, responded to the Presidential hopeful with the following quip; “Sorry, Hillary, I was running on C.P. Time.”
After a bit of nervous laughter, Hillary responded “Cautious politician time. I’ve been there.”
For those who may be unaware of the cultural minefield that both de Blasio and Clinton have willfully chosen to enter, the term ‘C.P. Time’ translates into ‘Colored People Time’; a stereotypical inference that ‘Colored People’, a term not used since the Jim Crow Era, are always late.
In the wake of this ill-advised and even worse timed ‘joke’, both Clinton and de Blasio have expressed regret and stated that they in no way intended to offend the African-American community.
The primary problem with such a half-assed ‘apology’ is that it reveals how little regard Democratic Party politicians like Bill de Blasio and Hillary Clinton actually have for an African-American electorate that is not only a primary, but also the main pillar to all of their political aspirations.
One has to wonder what would have been the national reaction if Hillary Clinton and Bill de Blasio performed the following skit prior to New York’s fast-approaching primary election.
de Blasio: Hey, Hillary, some of the people want to know why they had to pay so much for admission to this event, but received such little food.
Clinton: Well, Bill, you should know better than anyone; this is your city after-all. This event was organized by Jews who are notoriously cheap bastards. This is ‘Hymie Town’ after all.
I am certain that you agree that Hillary would never state such publicly as offending the Jewish Community in such a manner would most certainly mean the end of her Presidential campaign. Although the Jewish community is numerically smaller than the African-American community, their political power which rests upon financial clout and political organization guarantees that they are a force to be reckoned with in the political arena. Keep in mind; you will not become President if you have not answered questions regarding your position on Israel.
So the question that should be asked is a very simple one. Why would Hillary Clinton and Bill de Blasio feel so comfortable singling-out African-Americans for this public embarrassment?
The answer is simple. Because they can. Hillary knows that with a half-hearted ‘apology’ and a public appearance or two with power hungry elected Black officials, she will once again become the only option for a formidable African-American electorate. Even with the New York primary being approximately a week away, there is no doubt that Black New Yorker’s will show out in droves to support Hillary Clinton.
I am certain that her only real concern is will they be there on time. Cause you know how Niggers do; if not, ask de Blasio and Clinton about C.P. Time, trust me when I say that they will know exactly what you are asking them about.
