David Lowery, President of the South Suburban Branch of the NAACP, alleges Louis Raymond, a director of the re-election campaign of Barack Obama, “threatened and intimidated” him because he doesn’t support President Obama. Why must we always have infighting in the black community? Can we ever stand together as a unified group?
David Lowery says he believes he was threatened during a phone conversation with Louis Raymond, the Illinois political director for Obama for America. Lowery says he doesn’t personally support the president because he’s not addressing issues important to the black community. He said he was explaining that to Raymond when the Obama campaign official told him, “You know what? I know everything about you.”
Lowery filed a report with the Oak Forest police report, he says, “in case something happens.” He says it was suggested the NAACP should automatically back the president. Lowery notes a non-profit cannot support a particular candidate. He says it’s a clear signal the Obama campaign is concerned about the black vote. Source
David Lowery, please, by all means vote for Mitt Romney, who will support the black community in ways you couldn’t possibly imagine — sans the 47 percent insult and all. President Obama has 94 percent of the black vote to Mitt Romney’s two percent. I don’t think he’s worried about the black vote.
