This is a flyer for Stan Watson’s campaign against Burrell Ellis for Dekalb County CEO.
This did not get much attention during the primary. It certainly did not make the front page of the AJC. It is pretty blatant race baiting.
You can see it blown up here.
Here is the other side, in which Watson describes his relationship with Barack Obama and how hard he’ll work to make sure Obama becomes the first “African-American President.”
It’s pretty pathetic that in the 21st century this type of tactic is still considered persuasive. And we both know there are areas of this state where the same thing would be persuasive among white voters.
The difference is that the AJC would put that on its front page and did not, to my knowledge, put this on the front page.
