Alec Baldwin Says “If Obama Were White, He’d be Up by 17 Points”
“If Obama was white, he’d be up by 17 points,” Baldwin tweeted.
There is certainly some truth to what Baldwin says when one considers what an inept candidate Romney has been for the majority of this campaign. Thus far, Romney has only had one shining moment, and that was during his first debate with President Obama. But up until then, Romney made one misstep after another, from attacking President Obama on Libya to the 47 percent remark. He’s also the same guy who previously held opposing positions on almost every issue that Americans care about, demonstrating that he really doesn’t have any core beliefs.
Romney is undeniably one of the worst candidate’s this country has ever seen, and yet he’s still within striking distance of Obama, and that should tell us something about the American electorate. Baldwin seems willing to tell the truth about the double standards many white Americans hold where black people are concerned.
But this is not the first time that Baldwin has called a quacking animal a duck. Just last week, Baldwin tweeted that “Romney will continue the GOP legacy of crippling less powerful Americans in order to elevate rich, white, heterosexual, Christian males.”
To anyone paying attention, this is a no brainer as well. Guess it sounds a bit different to the ear when Baldwin says it as opposed to when black people make these very same observations. Either way, Baldwin deserves credit for speaking truth to power. Most celebrities are so busy counting their money that they neglect political advocacy. Beyonce and Jay-Z could learn a thing a two from watching Alec Baldwin.
