Kinky and Race (Episode 3 in Kinky vs. Minorities)

After months of treating Kinky Friedman as nothing more than a sideshow freak in the three-ring circus that the Texas governor's race has become, the media have finally begun to explore the inherent flaws in Kinky's campaign.

True to its nature, the first of many flaws which the media have fixated upon is the more sensational misjudgments (and less policy-oriented errors) represented by the strain of racial tension undercutting Kinky's campaign efforts.

From Kinky's last political campaign as a Republican candidate to his current political campaign, Kinky has established a pattern of using racially charged phrases about his on-again-off-again distaste for the "tar baby" of politics, his thoughts on "nigger eggs," his views on punishment by mumbling "Negroes" in prison, his talk of "fried chicken in the ghetto," and his plans for the black "thugs and crackheads" in Houston.

Some call this pattern of comments racist, but others call this simply a foolish way for Kinky to guarantee that he won't win a single minority vote. In either case, it is not without good cause that Kinky has less than half of the minority support that Chris Bell enjoys and less than two-thirds of the minority support for Perry.

While Kinky's comments about the mumbling Negro prisoners, fried-chicken-eating ghetto dwellers, and black crackheads have already received much media attention recently, his "nigger egg" and "tar baby" comments have not.

Expect these comments from the April 2001 edition of Texas Monthly to surface in the next wave of press questioning Kinky's wisdom in courting the minority vote in Texas:

But it wasn't former U-boat commanders who torpedoed my candidacy. It was my inability to appeal to the religious right. To me, the religious right has always seemed like the kind of place where if Jesus walked in with three nails, they'd probably put him up for the night. But I persevered. I even went so far as to become a Southern Baptist until I realized that they didn't hold 'em under long enough.… Thus it was, because of my personal disillusionment with politics, that I finally became a charismatic atheist. About the only article of faith that we charismatic atheists truly cling to is the belief that ballet is basketball for homosexuals.... I often encourage young people to go ahead and get into politics themselves. You see, I don't like young people, and if they become involved in that worthless tar baby that is politics, the more chance there is that maybe they'll leave me alone.

For those too young to be familiar with the nature of the term "tar baby," historian and public schools curriculum advisor Randy Lightfoot explains:

Tar Baby gained a negative connotation during the period of American slavery. The nickname was given to African children living on slave plantations. It was a degrading term that implied a lack of intelligence and uncivilized behavior, he said.... "For those who know what it means, Tar Baby is very offensive," he said.


Also, expect to hear more soon about Kinky's recorded comments from his April 16th, 1980 concert at the Rockefeller Club in Houston, where Kinky joked with his mostly white audience:

Then I come down to Houston, I went to a bowling alley. I couldn't go bowling, there were no bowling balls. The people here throw 'em all in the sea, thought they were nigger eggs…thought they were nigger eggs.


Once the media tires of pointing that Kinky hasn't done much to win the trust of black voters in Texas, it will ultimately see that Kinky is not a better friend of the Native American or the Tejano.

Maybe, just maybe, after all that discussion of Kinky’s propensity to offend minority voters the media will finally consider the fact that Kinky's absurd proposed political policies present the greatest threat to Texas.

Right, Sonia, you've got me into this now and the interesting thing is you don't know where my readership comes from - it's half British, half US and half the US is from Texas. Half the rest is from Russia and Australia. Now why would that be? Anyway, you going to link me, girl? Now that I'm in it up to my neck?

Your site is very informative. Our local newspaper has an online edition with an opinion story about Kinky. I left a comment, but I am not good with words.

Well, it's no suprise he is racist, elitist and was using Christianity merely to win votes-he's Jewish, after all. They are bred to believe in their own "God given" supremacy over the rest of us Goyim from the time they can go to temple...We have enough Jewish control of the Federal government, so I'm glad he doesn't look to be winning Texas!
