HomePolitical NewsPete Buttigieg's Attempt to Prove Black People Like Him Fails Miserably Mike Vance November 17, 2019 All of the Democrats seem to be laying the blueprint fow how to not win the primaries. Count South Bend Mayor and 2020 Democrat hopeful Pete Buttigieg in that group. Buttigieg put forth a pathetic effort to prove black people support him. This may have been even worse than Hillary Clinton pretending like she takes a bottle of hot sauce with her everywhere she goes. Yesterday Pete Buttigieg put out a list of 400 Black South Carolinians that endorse him/his plan. -A lot of the people are confused because they didn’t endorse. -42 percent of the list is white. -They used stock photos from Kenya. Yet we have heard nothing from his campaign. — Rachel R. Gonzalez (@RachelRGonzalez) November 16, 2019 Wow! Talk about embarrassing. So instead of proving he has black support this turned out to be a total sham. Many of the people on the list had no idea who Pete is. Then many more of them were white. But wait, there's more... The Buttigieg camp used a stock photo from Kenya to promote its Frederick Douglass Plan for Black America. https://t.co/b3b3bnqmTr — Rachel R.

Gonzalez (@RachelRGonzalez) November 16, 2019 They did a pathetic job of explaining how this happened: Pete Buttigieg’s campaign sent out an email telling people they needed to opt-out of being on the endorsement list. This is not how is works. pic.twitter.com/s4SruVCXiE — Rachel R. Gonzalez (@RachelRGonzalez) November 16, 2019 So they didn't opt out of supporting Pete? Here's a better question: Did they even know they opted in? One of the worst parts is that one of the names Pete Buttigieg’s campaign used is Johnnie Cordero. Johnnie Cordero is the Chair of the South Carolina Black Caucus. They really thought he wouldn’t notice. — Rachel R. Gonzalez (@RachelRGonzalez) November 16, 2019 This keeps getting funnier. As a black man and gay man, it’s time that I took a sledgehammer to the intellectual laziness that perpetuates the myth that African Americans are homophobic and, therefore, won’t vote for Pete Buttigieg. https://t.co/AdrMsn8OU2 — Jonathan Capehart (@CapehartJ) November 8, 2019 Just when you think it can't get any worse, it keeps getting worse and worse for Mayor Pete. This is unbelievable. Buttigieg put out a list black ppl who endorse his plan; half are white and the others include stock photos from Kenya — and ppl were told they had to *opt out* of endorsing. This campaign is the whitest thing in the universe. https://t.co/ktcEO54LQF — Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) November 17, 2019 The Democratic hopefuls are a competition as to who can be the worst. As soon as one outdoes the rest someone steps up and says "hold my beer!"
