Obama’s New Radio Ad Upsets African American Community

Some voters from the African American community found a new radio advertisement released by President Obama’s campaign offensive. The targeted “We Got Your Back” ad is set to a retro urban beat. Irvin Mcclain, wrote on Redding News Review’s Facebook: “I love Obama and voted for him but Rob when [you] played that we got your back for his campaign that was an insult to black folks…”

Afia Cayee, another listener from Facebook also had a comment…”Yes, I agree…THAT OBAMA commercial is TERRIBLE…almost INSULTING! The last thing Black people need is another JINGLE commercial.. RIDICULOUS ! MEMO AMERICA, BLACK PEOPLE APPRECIATE STRAIGHT TALK! STRAIGHT, NO CHASER!” Another listener said that Obama was simply trying to appeal to the blacks who like Tyler Perry’s slapstick movies. So what do you think?
