Kinky vs. Texas Minorities (Why They Distrust Him)

The internal crosstabs at the latest SurveyUSA poll show that Kinky has the least support of all the candidates among Black voters. Kinky's support among likely Black voters is down to 6% and down even lower to 4% among those racial minorities who did not list their race. Kinky's paltry level of support is less than half the support among Black voters than even notoriously unpopular Governor Perry receives.

Why is Kinky's support so low among likely Black voters?

What could be diminishing Kinky's support in the Black community to less half the level of the widely disliked governor?

Could it be this video from Kinky's appearance last November on CNBC's "The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch" where Kinky explained his view that criminals should be punished by locking them in prison and making them "listen to a Negro talking to himself"?

Could that be why Kinky is so distrusted in the Black community?

Or perhaps Kinky is so unpopular among Black voters because Donny Deutsch asked if Kinky's statement was possibly a little racist, and Kinky replied that "Negro is a charming word."

If Kinky thinks "Negro is a charming word," I can only guess what Kinky thinks about the word "tar baby." The last time Kinky ran for public office, when he ran openly as a Republican, Kinky lost and he was bitter about it. Kinky said he was leaving “that worthless tar baby that is politics.” Just count that as one more broken promise.

Maybe this is why Kinky is widely unpopular among Black voters.

Likewise, the crosstabs at the SurveyUSA poll show that Kinky has the least support of all the candidates among Hispanic voters.

Why is Kinky's support so low among likely Hispanic voters?

Could it be the newspaper interviews where Kinky promises to take "a harder line on immigration" than any of the other candidates and where Kinky says the Tejano protesters marching in favor of immigration reform are "half playing hooky"?

Could it be the other newspaper interviews where Kinky says "Mexico is not a poor country" and "I will divide the border into five jurisdictions, assigning one Mexican general to each and providing a trust fund for that general"?

Maybe it's those interviews where Kinky says "all of these politicians are afraid of offending Hispanics ... I want the border off the evening news until we get something resolved."

Obviously, Kinky is not "afraid of offending Hispanics" – or Black voters, for that matter. Maybe that's why Kinky is the least popular candidate among minority voters in Texas.

Holy cow! No wonder Kinky has such low approval ratings among minority voters.

You're analyzing Kinky as if he were a regular politician. The biggest plank in his platform is: he's not a politician. He's a "regular guy", so to speak, set apart by fame. Because he's been famous for years, there's a hefty record of things he's said over the years.
If any one of us were as famous as Kinky, most likely we could dig back a few dozen years and find some really choice politically incorrect nuggets, as our host blogger has done here.
I challenge you to continue to criticize Kinky without trotting out that tired Bob Marley cocaine quote.

On your attempt at making Kinky out to be some sort of racist, you are totally wrong, totally misquoting out of context, and adding your own spin on the truth.

"tar baby"

A "tar baby" is metaphorically any "sticky situation" you moron.

"Negro talking to himself"

I personally, on Sat. Sept. 9th in San Antonio, met with Kinky and Jewford. Jewford and I got to talking for a bit, and I asked him what Kinky meant when he said:

"As a general rule of thumb, however, if you thought of New York as a Negro talking to himself and of California as a VCR with nothing to put in, you wouldn't be too far off the mark."

Friedman, Kinky (1993), A case of Lone Star. New York (Wings Books), 379

Jewford told me back when him and Kinky lived in NYC, that is the reality of what was going on. On the streets where they bar and club hopped, there were addicts, druggies, fiends, all over the place, many of them happened to be black. This, Jewford said, was the truth back then. About California, the people there were superficial.

"crackheads and thugs"

The truth hurts.

"Tejano teenagers"

"He said Tejano teenagers marching for immigration reform this month were "half showing pride, half playing hooky." And he said Texas leaders are "too afraid to offend anyone" to make tough decisions about the "scads of illegal Mexicans" in the state."

If you watched these protests and what the TEENAGERS were saying when interviewed, you would agree.

You are probably going to pay for what you are doing greatly. I would hate to walk a day in your shoes.
