Ditto! It Is Disgusting
Anti-Kerry radio ads run on black stations:
"The Kerry campaign denounced the ads, all of which are being aired on black radio stations. 'It's disgusting that the president's political allies are now using race as a political weapon,' said Bill Lynch, deputy manager of the Kerry campaign. 'First a group of right-wing Swift boat veterans began smearing John Kerry's military service, and now another group has resorted to playing racial politics.'"
"Another ad attacks Teresa Heinz Kerry, who, at the Democratic convention last month cited her birth and upbringing in Mozambique and who has described herself as African American. In the radio commercial, the announcer says: "His wife says she's an African American. While technically true, I don't believe a white woman, raised in Africa, surrounded by servants, qualifies.""
For the record, when asked, I use the term Black American (because I am American by birth and generations of residence (forced or not). Teresa Heinz Kerry IS African American and has every right to call herself that.
These fools NEED to stop!
