Further Evidence That Some People Just Do Not Have Your Interests At Heart-Introducing Bob Johnson

Thanks go out to resident commenter Sergio and an additional hat tip to Bossip. We have seen a number of the civil rights vanguard speak out of term regarding Senator Obama, now you can also add former CEO (and present Chairman) of the minstrel channel (BET) to the growing roster of haters. Check out this latest faux pas, courtesy of Bossip:

Hoes Sit Down

Here is what BET founder and Clinton supporter, Robert Johnson, said about Barack Obama today at a Black church in South Carolina:

“As an African American, I’m frankly insulted that the Obama campaign would imply that we are so stupid that we would think Bill and Hillary Clinton, who have been deeply and emotionally involved in black issues when Barack Obama was doing something in the neighborhood that I won’t say what he was doing but he said it in his book,” Johnson said while campaigning with Clinton in Columbia South Carolina.

Although he later tried to clean up what he said, he is obviously referring to Obama’s admitted drug use. How many other negroes support is for sale?

Again, this is coming from the man that doesn't want to attest for the imagery that BET engenders and currently promotes. And remember that BET Uncut ran while BET was still under his helm before the Viacom purchase. What do you think about this latest issue? What are your thoughts?
