Ok now if this doesn't count as Political madness, I don't know what will.
Although what this man did is deceptively dishonest, you can't help but chuckle. I mean come on... Dave Wilson figured on his winning as being a long shot. What he did is use African American actors for his ads. And also added in an endorsement that read, "endorsed by Ron Wilson". No not Ron Wilson the African American state representative, but Dave's cousin, Ron Wilson. He did place a small disclaimer on the bottom of the ads mentioning that Ron Wilson was his cousin.

So I know there will be some varying opinions on this. So what do you think, was this man wrong to represent himself as being black? Although he never really did say that he was black. Or were the people that choose elected representatives by race fair game? Think about it, it was his principles that won the election. And he would have likely lost the election had they known he was white. Me? I am on the fence on this one due to integrity issues, but it is still darn funny.

The low information voter got exactly what they deserved. Maybe voting for a Race instead of a person isn't the best choice after all.

Yes, and it took one wild and crazy experiment to prove this, I must say. This is one for the psychology books.

I think it is funny as hell.

A white, ultra-conservative man used racial profiling to his advantage.

Sort of how people ended up with Obama and his Obamacare? Yep, another classic example! Maybe we should just give up the country now if this is what we are up against?

My god hahahaha people are so dumb, please somebody just put me out of my misery
Why on earth would you vote for somebody you clearly don't even know based on a crappy leaflet. In this case I truly believe the people got what they deserve. I'm running out of sympathy for this level of stupid.....sorry.

I'm not surprised, Republicans have been lying to black people for years.

Are you serious? What does this have to do with repubs, and black people?

People that vote for a race, rather than the person, are completely ignorant.

I have never, and will never care about a persons skin color. Its ridiculous to do so... but hey, to each their own.

This goes to show how stupid voters are. It makes me sick!

Exactly.

People sign up for an orwellian police state.


This supports the experiment that Mark dice is doing with field surveys.

Already infamous for mailing homphobic fliers to voters in Houston as part of a campaign against its mayor Annise Parker (who's a lesbian), Wilson—a white Republican in a district filled with mostly black Democrats—was elected to the Houston Community College Board of Trustees by conning voters into believing he's black.

Let me get this straight.

You're all applauding this guy without knowing anything about him at all because you read a single article that he was able to get elected in a predominately black district by generating fake campaign literature depicting him as a black person? REALLY? How are you any better than the people you're mocking for voting for him? You don't think the exact same tactic could work in reverse? Because none of you have any bias. That couldn't be why many of you are so jittery with excitement at this perceived confirmation of the asinine notion that white people are somehow people persecuted.

Here's something else interesting:


Another flier read "Endorsed by Ron Wilson," who voters probably assumed was the former state representative, who happens to be African-American. Wilson was referring to his cousin who lives in Iowa, and the fine print—which he basically dared people to read—even says so. Downright evil.


So it wasn't even just a matter of swapping out his picture after all?

You know what? Just take it for what it is, funny... Did any of us say it was right to do? In fact, I stated that it was deceptive. But the people who voted for him were a bunch of num nuts also, and got what they deserved. Come next election maybe they will have learned a valuable lesson and become informed voters?

(Yeah maybe learn to look for the made in Africa tag next time around. True? LOL...)

I don't think it was wrong. We live in a very racist country, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do I guess. I wonder if they even care about his politics.

First of all, who is "you all". Are you making a blanket statement towards every poster in this thread?

I have no clue what you're on about here.... could you reiterate your point, please?

It's all good in their minds because it somehow proves that black people are racist? This election was for a Board of Trustees seat at a Community College that had come under fire for doing business with overseas companies (not sure what that entailed actually) but this guy promised to investigate the issue and thus got elected.

Who cares if he lied, right guys? Murica!
