This guy is genius imo , he proves blacks are racist and uses their racism to win then gets to troll
Correction... Just some individuals. Actually, although funny, this was a bit over the top. I could never support such a person. And he has 6 years there so he better do some good now that he is there. He owes it to them.
The incumbent, the person he was running against, was a black man. How does his pretending to be black prove that people who voted for him are racists (or even black? or even saw his print material?). Do you really think that he has any intention of dutifully representing the interest of his constituents?
I wonder if Obama would have ever been elected were it not for his "race".
If we just focused on policy instead of colour, then things like this would not occur.
This certainly brings things to the fore.
Yet another reason to join Russell Brand in not voting again ever.
What's the point of a having a nation by the people and for the people when a large majority of the people have the intellect of amoeba? If you actually pay attention to things, especially the things that are being pushed as OK and politically correct, it's hard not to be in a constant state of frustration and anger.
This is funny as hell, but also embarrassing. NOBODY bothered to check into this guy's background before they cast a vote?? And these types are among the effing morons putting the dipsh**s & greedy a-holes in Washington. Nuff said. I know it's everyone's right to vote as they please, but holy frick, you guys. No wonder we're in the toilet here. Maybe mandatory voter education classes is a better idea than I thought.

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!
That was actually just a snarky comment, so no.
But let's put a stop to this BS right now.
An electrician best known for mailing homophobic fliers to thousands of Houston voters attacking the city’s lesbian mayor narrowly won an election to the Houston Community College Board of Trustees after he misled voters into believing that he is African American. Dave Wilson defeated longtime incumbent Bruce Austin, who actually is black, in an overwhelmingly African American district.
Wilson’s campaign fliers were filled with black faces that he admits to simply pulling off of websites, along with captions such as “Please vote for our friend and neighbor Dave Wilson.” Another flier announces that he was “Endorsed by Ron Wilson,” which is the name of an African American former state representative. Only by reading the fine print will voters discover that the “Ron Wilson” who actually endorsed Dave is his cousin. The cousin lives in Iowa.
Okay, so the guy he unseated was black too? Think about that for a minute. How can we can now conclude that race was the issue? If the voters thought that both candidates were black, they weren't voting for Dave Wilson "because he was black" were they?
This whole thing is disgusting and the fact that people just jumped all over a chance to pull the reverse racism card is sickening.
