There are a number of things wrong with this clip. Number 1: You don't have to be a Senator to shop at "Whole Foods." I shop there and I don't have the money of the McCains or the Obamas; I just prefer eating fresh food. Hel-lo, I see normal black people (as well as other races) at Whole Foods.
Number 2: Have these pundits lost their ever-loving minds flipping the "angry black man" phrase around. So what Barack Obama is elegant and cool? What do you want to him to look like? He's running for President for Goodness sake. If Colin Powell was running for President eight years ago, would they say he needed to be like an "angry black man?"
Note to all these pundits: There are tons of black families who relate to the Obamas; you just don't put them enough on your TV screens since the "Cosby Show" went off the air. Now you think he needs to act like an "angry black man" to relate to the plight of the American people - you gotta be kidding me!
