Democrats bullied black Reverend out of Florida Congressional race in favor of white candidate


Apparently the Democrats thought it would be very difficult for white Democrat voters to get behind a black Democrat candidate.: 

Rev. Manuel Sykes was the only official Democratic candidate in the 13 Congressional district in Florida when he received a bullying call from the Pinellas County Democratic chairman telling him to get out of the race in favor of another candidate, a white candidate, Ed Jany. Jany has since dropped out of the race under a cloud of having: exaggerated some of his background.

The Chairman made it very clear to Sykes that Democrats thought he stood less of a chance because he was running in an overwhelmingly “white district”. So not only were they being offensive to him, but they were making an offensive judgment about the district in general.

Democratic-donkey

Isn’t it a bit: odd that the party that is always claiming to be inclusive and diverse would do this? There’s got to be something else wrong with him for other Democrats to treat one of their own this way.: Perhaps he’s honest or something?

Watch Reverend Sykes speak about the incident and give his thoughts on why he was pressured to drop out:
