Steele vowes to represent the 'hood'
The Washington Times...
Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele yesterday said his U.S. Senate campaign aims to bring "the 'hood" with him to Capitol Hill.
"The 'hood is going to show up on the Hill," said Mr. Steele, a black Republican. "That is what this campaign is all about, and that scares some people when I say stuff like that -- on both sides of the aisle, God bless them."
He said he delivered a similar message to Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, a Tennessee Republican supporting Mr. Steele's candidacy.
"I told him, 'Be careful what you wish for -- a brother shows up, I bring people,'?" Mr. Steele said to about 70 supporters at the opening of his state campaign headquarters in Temple Hills. "You have all had one of those picnics, right?
How insulting. He didn't have the balls to stand up to Bob Erlich when he had a fundraiser at an exclusive country club, and now he wants to talk about "da hood".
Maryland has one of the largest numbers of black professionals in the US. U Maryland has the most black students of any university in the country.
Yet for whites, he wants to talk about "being from da hood" and playing on ever negative sterotype of black people popular among the right.
No dignity, no self-respect, no character. And people gave me shit for calling him Simple Sambo. Well, you describe what he's doing here.
