While sitting on a panel at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference in New York Wednesday, Ben Carson’s former aide and current business partner challenged Black voters.
Armstrong Williams told the majority Black crowd that the Clintons “will say whatever they need to say and do whatever they need to do to get elected.”
Williams demanded that voters in the venue make Democrats earn their vote because “they play the race card, too, as they did in South Carolina against Barack Obama. Don’t get caught up in the short memory. This is a business.”
The Clintons have come under fire for past failings regarding race. The 1994 crime bill and the term “super predator” have been at the center of the controversy.
Williams’ plea to the audience was met with boos and hisses.
