COLUMBIA, S.C. — Reminding African-American voters here that they should remember who got them this far, Sen. Hillary Clinton today said that they should be grateful to the white executives who gave them everything they have.
“People talk about Martin Luther King Jr., and he was great and all. But let me tell you, without a white person in the White House to give him what he asked for, he’d still be marchin’ across bridges in the segregated South, cryin’, Lawd hep me!” Clinton said.
“Slavery? You don’t see a memorial in Washington to Toby or Sally! No, it’s Abe Lincoln sitting in that big ole stone chair! And Jackie Robinson didn’t just walk on to the L.A. Dodgers. Branch Rickey asked him to!
“You think Oprah became a billionaire on her own? Heck no! A bunch of white people in management said let’s make some money off this black woman! Will Smith? He was broke when NBC executives gave him that TV show! Welfare? FDR and LBJ. Basketball? James Naismith. You name it, my friends, there’s a powerful white leader behind it.
“You can talk all you want about hope and change. But where has hope ever gotten anybody? Nowhere but the ghetto. You want results, put a powerful white person in charge. You know what I’m talkin’ ‘bout!”
Clinton then said she felt for all who suffered in the civil rights movement while waiting for the right white President to come along and hand them their freedom, squeezed a few tears out of her left eye, and sped off in a big white Cadillac with a giant steer horn hood ornament.
