You know you are at least a Lawn jockey when you are not above exposing your late grandmother as a white woman, in order to win White voters outside of the district you represent, in campaigning for public office. The problem with Harold Ford, Jr., is that he considers himself to be an erudite, accomplished, intelligent, educated, attractive member of the House of Representatives, who is running for a seat in the U. S. Senate. He probably believes that in sharing the information that his late grandmother, Mrs. Vera Ford, was a white woman who passed as an African-American, doesn't really make him a hater of the race; in fact, if you should happen to question him, Ford would probably tell you he's a proud African-American man, who happened to have a white grandmother. If he's proud of his Afro-ethnic lineage, the race of his late grandmother should not matter, and shouldn't merit any mention by Ford or anyone else. The fact that he's emphasizing she was white, speaks loudly as to how he perceives his race will be a political issue in this campaign.
It says that he's ashamed to be an African-American. Check it out at the Pesky Fly, read it and then commence weeping, for it is a sad day in Black America when our Black elected officials demonstrate they can't be judged by the content of their character when they don't have any.
Say "HELLO" to the front runner for the Stepin Fetchit Award at the 1st Annual Lawn Jockey Award Dinner to be held in Washington, DC this summer.
