The Republican National Committee (RNC) is running a purely racist ad against Harold Ford in Tennessee. Ford, an African-American congressman, is campaigning for the United States Senate. With their hold on power slipping the RNC, headed by George Bush’s appointee Ken Mehlman, is using all their old tricks to hold on to the South. Kanye West was right when he said in the wake of George Bush’s disastrous and deadly slow response to the suffering caused by Hurricane Katrina that the president doesn't care about black people. His party’s racist attacks on Ford prove the point.
