Oh Hillary…

You’d think Hillary Clinton’s campaign would back away from trying so hard to be down with communities of color after [email protected] clapped back when the Clinton campaign said the candidate was “just like your abuela,” or when she switched her logo to honor Rosa Parks by putting her back on the bus and Black folk were none too pleased.

Still, in an effort to show a bit of cultural competency, Clinton’s camp incorporated the Kinara and the seven candles representing the Nguzo Saba, or principles, of Kwanzaa. While Clinton’s campaign may have been attempting to show how inclusive they are, the whole thing backfired.

Of course, it also spawned a hilarious hashtag: #NewHillaryLogo.

It wasn’t all fun and games, though. Writer and anthropologist Victoria M. Massie broke down why Clinton’s Kwanzaa logo was so problematic.

Hopefully Clinton’s camp was listening.

    Kwanzaa is Marxism with a black fist (“Ujima”). Naturally Hillary would associate with it. Of course, Today’s RADICAL Democrat/Progressive Party doesn’t give a rat’s patooty about the 7 Principals as long as Black Americans keep destroying their families and aborting their children to remain on the Democratic Plantation.

    Principal #1 of “Umoja” – Strong Families/Unity – is completely ignored by the Democrat Plantation “Massah.” The Communist who invented “Kwanzaa” wrote the 7 principals in 1966 when Black out-of-wedlock birth rate was under 10%. Thanks to the Democratic Party, that rate has grown to today’s ….. 72%. Holy Crap!! The Democratic/Progressive Party has managed to DESTROY THE BLACK FAMILY !!!
    Democrats want No “Umoja” for Black Americans.
    And yet … Black Americans continue to leave the whip in the hands of the Democrat Party. (Can you say “Chicago is a Democrat town”?)

    And yet, she’ll still get a super majority of black votes come November. Blacks know their place on the Democratic planation and refuse to acknowledge how badly they have been duped by the Dems for the past 50 years.
    If and when they finally do, it will be too late, as they will have already been supplanted by the new Dem 3rd world voter of their choice.
