Tavis Smiley, the bestselling author of the "Covenant With Black America," is in a world turned upside down. He said he's being "hammered," "barbecued," and is "catching hell" from black Americans for suggesting that Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) made a major mistake by declining to speak at the State of the Black Union event that Smiley plans to host next week in New Orleans.
"There's all this talk of hater, sellout and traitor," Smiley said to me in a telephone interview. Smiley even mentioned getting death threats, but wouldn't elaborate. He said his office has been flooded with angry e-mails. "I have family in Indianapolis. They are harassing my momma, harassing my brother. It's getting to be crazy," Smiley said.

Another famous black author, Larry Elder, also wrote:
“Blacks are more racist than whites”.
One of the Clinton's house slaves.
Glad to hear he's not being "Lynched!" /sarc
Live by identity politics; die by identity politics.
I think, as a group, blacks smell blood in the water and they see a chance to get the guy in.
“It’s getting to be crazy,” Smiley said.”
It’s a religious fervor.
Good to see this tolerance thing is working so well for the libs.
Same guy whined about Republican candidates not wanting to appear at his debate a few months ago.
Tavis Smiley is a dope.
How dare he criticize the Magic Negro?
Hmmm, I wonder if at some point there will be coded threats of - let’s say “unrest” - if the populace doesn’t vote a certain way?
Well .. if Hillary wins over Obama, or if McCain wins over Obama .. I hope the nation is prepared for the backlash.
If people remember what happened in the Watts section of LA - I predict it will be worse.
This is only the begining... by the time the GOP gets to bat.. the Consevatives will be the equivalent of the KKK... say anything to counter Obama’s liberal plans and your racist, hater, homophobe, far Right Wing Conservatives...
Thank you, Mrs Cuomo.
What goes around, comes around.
Some of those commenters are effectively pleading, “pssssst - don’t anybody tell the voters that Obama is black, and maybe he’ll be able to sneak into office before any of them figure it out”... LOL...
“Hmmm, I wonder if at some point there will be coded threats of - lets say unrest - if the populace doesnt vote a certain way?”
No. Ickes has already stated that it doesn’t matter what the people want.
There is no ‘majority rules’, and there is no ‘one person-one vote’ in Democratic Primaries.
It is a setup to allow the corrupt to stay in power.
Regardless of Obama’s, or any other Democratic Candidates take on the issues, the contest should be run fairly.
It is not.
I just posted a comment over there, how long it will stand is another question.
