Black Town Hall Questioner Tears Apart McCain In Facebook Message
You may recall the second question from Tuesday night's town hall debate from a young black fellow named Oliver Clark. Clark asked the candidates what the bailout package does for the Average American. McCain responded by attacking Obama for not regulating Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- it was his ONE JOB AND HE BLEW IT -- and in the process said to Clark, "You probably never heard of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac before this." Because how would anyone have known about these two mortgage giants that back 70% of the country's mortgages? Well, it was condescending anyway, and Clark has posted a hilarious message on his Facebook saying that he has like 500 college degrees and calling Walnuts a horrible racist.
He answers a bunch of questions -- apparently he has been bombarded with them, on this Facebook, but here's the juicy one:
7. How did I feel about Sen. McCain stating “You probably never heard of Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac before this.”
Well Senator, I actually did. I like to think of myself as a fairly intelligent person. I have a bachelor degree in Political Science from Tennessee State, so I try to keep myself up to date with current affairs. I have a Master degree in Legal Studies from Southern Illinois University, a few years in law school, and I am currently pursuing a Master in Public Administration from the University of Memphis. In defense of the Senator from Arizona I would say he is an older guy, and may have made an underestimation of my age. Honest mistake. However, it could be because I am a young African-American male. Whatever the case may be it was somewhat condescending regardless of my age to make an assumption regarding whether I was knowledgeable about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
Someone from the McCain campaign needs to tell NBC not to put these subprime "risky minorities" on the teevee anymore.
