NEWS FLASH. BILL CLINTON IS NOT NOW NOR HAS HE EVER BEEN BLACK. I'm so sick of people saying that he was the first African American President. Why? Because he was a playa? Because he was smooth? Because he cheated on his wife? Or was it because he played the sax on Arsenio Hall and loved himself some Aretha Franklin? I do not deny that Clinton had a number of Blacks on staff and was definitely a more inclusive president. But does that give him a black card? Please.
The latest offender is former civil rights activist and politician Andrew Young who stated, “Hillary Clinton, first of all, has Bill behind her. And Bill is every bit as black as Barack.” WHAT? Are you kidding me? So Bill faces the same struggles and racism as an obvious African American? Is Obama not black enough because he's educated? Give me a break. Mr. Young you do a disservice to yourself and to African Americans as a people by implying that Clinton is a) black; b) as black as Obama and by suggesting that there is some litmus test for being black.
