I'm showing this just because Greg Kane is deliberately throwing dirt in the faces of Black Democrats in Maryland:
The rejection of both Mfume and Simms should provide Maryland’s black Democrats with some food for thought and prompt some questions. And the first question should be why white Maryland Democrats don’t vote for black Democratic candidates for statewide office in the same proportion black Maryland Democrats vote for white candidates for statewide office.
In fact, blacks do that at the municipal level in Maryland. O’Malley is the white mayor of predominantly black Baltimore only because enough black folks voted for him -- against two qualified black opponents, by the way -- in 1999. One of those candidates, former Baltimore City Council President Lawrence Bell, was actually more qualified than O’Malley.
But if Steele can get elected to statewide office by Republicans while being an Uncle Tom/Sambo/Oreo cookie, what do we call black Maryland Democrats who got chumped by their party for the second straight election?
There is one little problem with the crowing by Greg Kane and that is called the general election.
Right now, polls show Steele behind Cardin and that is the reason why the state Republican party wanted Steele to go against Mfume and that is why Republicans pushed the issue of the Maryland State Party supporting Cardin and not Mfume.
If the polls hold out and the election goes to Cardin, what will Kane write then? Consider this: in political polls, there is always more stated support for the Black statewide candidate then when the voting results are tallied.
