Race-Pimping Alert: Rangel at Apollo

I got this email from New York Public Radio. It’s essentially a race-pimping advisory, as the black Left annually uses the birthday of MLK, Jr for profit.

Think these people will have a discussion of how GREAT things were post-MLK, and pre-Obama?

Or will this just be more victimization?

Look at the list of participants and you will get evidence of what I know is your answer. The author of How to be black? Really. I didn’t know there was an authority. How about this one, the Director for Million Hoodies for Justice.
