New Hillary team email reveals plan to use token blacks to give appearance of valuing black folks
A new batch of purportedly hacked emails from the account of Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta wee released on Sunday and one does not look good for the candidate’s courting of the black vote.
In it, Podesta drew out a plan to pander for the votes of African-Americans by simply hiring a black person in a prominent role for appearances.

The black is obvious super critical. I’m hearing the same complaint in > political circles that i continue to hear while fundraising. “The campaign doesn’t value black folks and takes us for granted,” Frank White Jr., a hedge fund manager and founder and CEO of DuSable Capital Management, wrote to Podesta. “Can I make a suggestion? A black campaign vice chair or Sr advisor would go a long way during the > primary and send the message that, Hillary puts her actions where her mouth > is, and actually does appreciate the black vote.”
“I have been working on that and will resolve soon. We need to strengthen the overall structure and this is the most critical piece of that,” Podesta wrote back. “Right now I think we should do this right after Super Tuesday.”
It was the second time White expressed concern with Clinton apparently taking the black vote for granted.
About a month before he chastised the campaign for Clinton snubbing a get together of African-American “elites” who could be potential donors.
Many on social media were insulted.
