White guy wins after leading voters to believe he’s black
#1
HOUSTON -- Dave Wilson chuckles as he talks about his unorthodox political campaign.

"I'd always said it was a long shot," Wilson says. "No, I didn't expect to win."

Still, he figured he'd have fun running, because he was fed up with what he called "all the shenanigans" at the Houston Community College System. As a conservative white Republican running in a district whose voters are overwhelmingly black Democrats, the odds seemed overwhelmingly against him.

Then he came up with an idea, an advertising strategy that his opponent found "disgusting." If a white guy didn't have a chance in a mostly African-American district, Wilson would lead voters to think he's black. http://www.khou.com/news/local/White-guy...22981.html

So he basically proved that a certain segment of America is racist because they vote along racial lines... and then accuse us of being racist. I think that is why they are pissed. Their duplicity is plain for anyone to see (who wants to).

I think he proved that there are a lot of low information voters out there.

He also proved that voting doesn't mean you get what you think you're getting, or what you want. But we knew that.

Funny story! Lots of food for thought.

Looks to me like a successful marketing strategy. Playing to the demographics. Nothing wrong about what he did and honestly I have yet to see where he "implied" he was black...

Agreed. I do see the trick with the cousins name as a little deceptive, but far from fraudulent. That's what I call a smart marketing campaign. Using African American people on his flyer says nothing about him being black. Those are the majority of the community he is in according to the story so that's just plain smart. This reinforces my belief that most people are just too ignorant to know what they're voting for.

You wouldn't be able to run as many people over with that car if it didn't drive as far. It should only have a 10 gallon fuel tank.

He proved why there are so many idiots in political positions.
