Diamond And Silk On Racist Pandering For Votes (OOh, That’s Going To Leave A Mark)

Ever hear the William Congreve line, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned?”  Try this one on for size:

Ain’t no mad like black women being talked down to and being treated like children.

That’s this writer’s “white girl who has lived close to the ghetto for decades” interpretation of the latest Diamond and Silk video presentation entitled “See How a Crook Baits Her Hook for Black Votes.”  Let’s just say the ladies from Fayetteville, North Carolina are NOT amused.

Don’t know about y’all, but any woman, black, white, Eastern European, Chinese, or Native American shoots a look like that at me, I’d look for a dagger, bullet hole, or arrow in my mid-section.  Oooh, girl.

Just a few thoughts here:

Is that Nelly?  He’s from the same ‘burg I am.  Ugh.

Hillary, honey, there are some things the world does not need to see.  You attempting to dance is one of them.

There is nothing more grating to the people of any one group than a clear outsider trying to act like an insider, adopting speech patterns and such, without the charm to pull it off.

“Lure you in with a bottle of hot sauce”…yeah, that one’s on another cultural plane.

Now we see it happening. Members of one of the groups pandered to for years for Democratic votes are not amused that they are once again being targeted at the expense of their own interests. Flattery gets the smooth talker nowhere if the promises aren’t kept.  Hillary is neither a smooth talker or a promise keeper.  That has been recognized.

In 2016, people like Diamond and Silk – everyday Americans – have been inspired to report themselves on what they see in the world around them.  They are smart enough to know when someone is “talking down” to them or pandering.  Now they’ve called out the party doing the pandering.  Good for them. They are doing themselves and the country a marvelous service.
