Clinton Racism Continues

From AmericaBlog:

(click image to see larger version)

DailyKos has the original scoop. I went and got the original footage from the Clinton ad, and then compared it to 3 different video clips of the same debate from 3 different sources. I did this so as to take into account any editing, or quality issues, that might have accounted for Obama having darker skin in any particular video. None of the 3 video sources I found showed Obama nearly as black as the Hillary ad does. Click the image above to see a larger version. Look at his lips. Look at his eyebrows. Look at how the red MSNBC background has turned more purple. Clearly the image was darkened. The question is "why."

It just keeps happening again and again and again. The Clintons keeps doing things, saying things, that sound awfully racist. And we're to believe that this, the - what? 8th, 10th time? - this has happened is again just a coincidence. The first half a dozen times you launch seemingly racist attacks on your black opponent, maybe - maybe - we can write it off as "boy you're really dumb not to get it." But having a seemingly-racist attack from the Clinton folks on Obama every single week, after a while, you don't get to play the "I had no idea!" card anymore. After that many times, you're race-baiting. You're using racism to win. And you're destroying your legacy and your husband's. Enough already.

Blatant racism pure and simple. And if all the lies and smears are bought by too many Dems, then I will write in Ron Paul in Nov. Anybody who justifies voting for Hillary now is either willfully ignorant or she reflects their values.

I'm sorry to disagree. I'm no Hillary fan, but the suit is darker in the top picture, so is the tie and the shirt. I really hope after tonight Hillary will do the right thing and step down. (I haven't seen any news on how she is doing in Texas or Ohio)

Parson - That's the entire point (and you're NOT disagreeing. The entire photo has been darkened. It HAS been doctored.

John- I'm an Obama supporter but I don't know if that inherently puts it in racism. They could have simply darkened the picture to make it look more miserable and drab.

Maybe they hired the same computer guy who made O.J. look darker on the cover of Time.

I'm not sure that I would call the Clintons racist, but I am SURE that they WILL use racism as a tactic.
