I typed in Barack Obama's name on google and was STUNNED when I came upon this article about what was said in South Carolina by a Black minister proclaiming his support for Hillary. (Hillary Clinton today fired back at Barack Obama and his announcement about Oprah Winfrey. She picked up the backing of Barbra Streisand, and in South Carolina, where half of Democratic voters are African-American, a big group of black ministers endorsed Hillary and took a swipe at Obama. His quote exactly.........."We don't need to be filling our heads with hopes and dreams," the Reverend Timothy Brown said. "We need someone that can take the Oval Office and lead us into this next generation." )
Could you imagine if Martin Luther King's "I have a Dream Speech" was instead titled "We dont need to be filling our heads with hopes and dreams?" The reverends SWIPE at Obama EXPOSED the HATRED some blacks have for themselves that they cant do better so they might as well settle for what they THINK they know.
This is exactly what Michelle Obama was talking about when she was asked about the blacks that say they wont vote for Obama because white people wont vote for him. The disturbing part of this statement by Reverend Brown is that he is suppose to be a leader in the black community.

For those of you that think Michelle Obama was NOT asked what she thought of black voters that say they wont vote for Obama because he is black, here is a link to the video of the actual question and Michelle Obama's response http://bravenewfilms.org/blog/18696-michelle-obama-interview-on-msnbc?play=1
[Update] This should be the real title of this diary, but I did not have enough space "Blacks, give up all your hopes and dreams..............VOTE FOR HILLARY" quite an endorsement!
