Video: Nader Plays Race Card Against Obama

Ralph Nader says Obama is trying to "talk white" and appeal to "white guilt." Maybe this is Nader's way of making sure that people don't vote for him during the election thus ruining Obama's chances of beating McCain.

In video posted by The Rocky Mountain News Nader says Obama is deceiving people when it comes to lobbying. He says 5 out of 6 "industries" have give more money to Obama than McCain. Nader says only the Transportation Industry has given more money to McCain. Truckers for Mac! That apparently leaves the health industry, securities industry, defense industry and two others Nader doesn't name.

He then says:
"There's only one thing different about Barack Obama when it comes to being a Democratic presidential candidate. He's half African-American," Nader said. "Whether that will make any difference, I don't know. I haven't heard him have a strong crackdown on economic exploitation in the ghettos. Payday loans, predatory lending, asbestos, lead. What's keeping him from doing that? Is it because he wants to talk white? He doesn't want to appear like Jesse Jackson? We'll see all that play out in the next few months and if he gets elected afterwards."
How many times are people going to throw Jesse Jackson under the bus? First, Bill Clinton, now Ralph Nader.
