Black Media & the ATTACK on Bruce Rauner

The race for Governor of Illinois is increasing by unprecedented, record breaking numbers relative to fundraising, mud slinging and commercial ads. Black folks in Illinois and especially Chicago are being dumb down to think they must vote for a Democrat at all cost. Behind this dumbing down is Black media pundits on social media and on Black radio. The support for Governor Pat Quinn by Black media pundits is unfair and unconstitutional.

Black people are being misled as it relates to Bruce Rauner as a person and politician. Black folks are being told by Black radio personalities not to vote for Bruce Rauner with no reasons why besides the fact he's a republican. The Democratic Machine in Illinois and Chicago has paid and bought Black media and uses it as a conduit to disseminate unfair innuendos about Bruce Rauner.

Most Blacks in Illinois have no clue Mr. Rauner graduated Summa Cum Laude from Dartmouth with a degree in economics. Most Blacks don't know Mr. Rauner has an MBA from Harvard University. Don't know Mr. Rauner was named "2008 Philanthropist of the Year" by the Chicago Association of Fundraising Professionals. Financial supporter: Chicago Red Cross Regional Headquarters, YMCA in Little Village, Six New Charter High Schools and recently pledged a million dollars to a struggling Black/African American South Side of Chicago Credit Union.

However, Mr. Rauner is being called an insensitive billionaire whose gonna destroy the Black community. FALSE! Its really unfortunate that in America one can be stigmatized for playing by the rules, going to college, working hard and making a success out of themselves. Currently the State of Illinois is in serious debt, and so is Chicago. In Chicago over 40 schools were closed by a Democrat. The State of Illinois is viewed as one of the most corrupt States in the Union, the State of Illinois (House, Senate, Secretary of State) is ran by Democrats.

"...the strategy of painting Bruce Rauner as 
a rich, republican white guy who is gonna 
take away gay rights and eliminate Black 
social programs is disingenuous and dangerous!"

At the end of the day Blacks in Illinois need to know the facts about both candidates. I'm humbly asking Black radio personalities on WVON1690AM to fairly report news on Governor Pat Quinn and candidate Bruce Rauner. The Black community deserves to know the truth about Mr. Rauner and his record! We can't afford to keep electing people simply because they are Democrats...that's ignorant and voter discrimination!

(Disclaimer) this post isn't insinuating the management of WVON1690AM is discriminating thwarts Bruce Rauner; however, most of the radio personalities are.
