Houston white man wins election by posing as black politician

 
HOUSTON—Dave Wilson, a right wing perennial candidate in Houston politics, finally won one. Posing as an African, he defeat­ed Houston Community College Trustee, Bruce Austin in the November 5 local elections. Austin, an African, had held the office for 24 years.
 
Since the election and re-elec­tion of Barack Hussein Obama, who ascended into the U.S. presidency without having to address a single concern of the African community, many local politicians attempting to win favor from the white moneyed class and white people, have followed suit.
 
In fact, all Dave Wilson had to do was put out a campaign flyer with photos of African family portraits proclaiming, “Please vote for our neighbor and friend Dave Wilson.”
 
Ol’ Dave even claimed he was endorsed by his cousin Ron Wil­son. Ron Wilson is the name of a popular African state representa­tive here in Houston. However, after the election, Dave revealed his cousin Ron as a relative living somewhere in Iowa.
 
One thing is certain—Dave had peeped the essence of neo­colonialist politics and U.S. elec­toral politics as well. Dave Wilson says he didn’t trick anybody.
 
Why speak to the issues, Dave figures. Nobody else does. He claims, and rightfully so that:
“Every time a politician talks, he’s out there deceiving voters.”
 
This is truly the culture of U.S. electoral politics, national and lo­cal.
 
In Houston, where whites are a minority, like they are in the world, Annese Parker, a white woman has won the last two may­oral elections over two African opponents, Gene Locke and Ben Hall, both of whom refused to say anything about the black com­munity. Hall did talk about how he would escalate the locking up of “criminals.”
 
In the many African newspapers here in Hous­ton, all decried the election as trickery. None of them addressed the issues involving the Houston Community College System, in­cluding the dispensing of its half billion dollar budget.
 
This includes the building of a campus in Bahrain.
 
Bruce Austin, the defeated 24-year incumbent, once he found out who his opponent was could only cry out, “He’s white!”
 
Smash Neocolonialism!!!
