ELECT ALL OF THE AFRICAN AMERICAN JUDICIAL CANDIDATES!

ARE YOU BOTHERED BY THIS BILLBOARD AT ALL?

Okay, I was in North Forest on Monday when I passed a political sign that caught my attention. It was for a group of candidates who were running for various judge seats in Harris County. The sign read vote straight Democrat in the November 4th election. The billboard also indicated we should all vote for these candidates because they are African American. It didn’t say that outright but it did send me that message. Remember that group of Republican Judges we all saw on television during the political season. I wonder what kind of heat they would’ve taken if they said vote straight Republican and by thew way elect all of these White Judges. It may just be me. You think? But the sign left me a bit uncomfortable in a country that just elected its first African American President. Obama didn’t ask people to elect him as an African American President but as the man he felt was best suited for the job. I have nothing personally against any of the judicial candidates but I’m just wondering if they made the right decision with the political sign. But in the end I guess it worked, because many of them were elected. What’s you feelings on this issue?
