Would blacks vote for a white Obama?
Former NAACP leader defies racial politics in new movie, ‘Runaway Slave’
By Anita Crane
If Barack Obama wasn’t black, would most black voters really have reason to support him?
Rev. C.L. Bryant, a former chapter president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, or NAACP, is boldly challenging whether the expanding government programs and progressive ideals espoused by Obama and his allies are actually helpful to black people or whether “the sons and daughters of former slaves traded one form of slavery for yet another.”
“Black people are very uninformed,” Bryant told WND, one of the key reasons he has made “Runway Slave,” a powerful new movie blowing the lid off racial politics.
Bryant is a descendent of American slaves and Choctaw Indians. He’s also a Baptist minister who resigned from NAACP leadership when they required him to host an event directly violating the commandments of Christ. In Bryant’s film, leaving the NAACP was just one step on his journey away from the slavery of anger and one step towards the truth setting him free.
What, then, is the reaction of blacks who’ve seen “Runaway Slave”?
Bryant told WND: “I have not yet had an encounter with anyone black who has been confrontational.”
He said that at screenings most tell him they didn’t know a lot of facts in the film. Still others get choked up and want to hug him. And he’s got video to prove it. Audience reactions to the Atlanta screening of “Runaway Slave” can be seen in the video above.
Yet as Bryant’s film shows, there is black-on-black bigotry towards those who defy the Democratic Party’s agenda.
