Cliven Bundy: ‘It’s Almost Like Black Folks Think White Folks Owe Them Something’
[su_right_ad]Cliven Bundy appears in a campaign video for independent congressional candidate Kamau Bakari where he dares Eric Holder to come to Nevada. After all, Bundy reasons, he took time to go to Ferguson.
After playing a clip of outgoing U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, labeled “race baiter,” Bundy says that unlike those “billionaire ball team owners” who were forced to apologize for their racist remarks, he is not a “coward.”
“I know black folks have a had a hard time with slavery and you know, the government was in on it. And the government’s in on it again,” Bundy says as spaghetti western music plays in the background. “I worked my whole life without mistreating anybody. A man ought to be able to express himself without being called names.”
In turn, Bakari calls Bundy a “brave white man” who is just what America needs to “put an end to this political correctness stuff.”
Together, the two men decide to challenge Holder to come to Nevada so they can show him they are no cowards. “Mr. Eric Holder, this is one white that’s not scared to talk about race,” Bundy says. “I dare you to come to Las Vegas and talk to us.”
