Romney Evokes Rev. Wright, Racial Imagery In Anti-Obama Ad
This Romney ad has already come under scrutiny for “intentionally” taking President Obama out of context. There may be an even more egregious offense, however. Democratic strategist Tad Devine says he’s shocked to see imagery of a black church in the ad, an attempt to invoke Obama’s former controversial pastor.
The ad, Romney’s first of the campaign, is “clearly an attempt to bring back Rev. Wright and race,” Devine tweeted…
“It appears to be a congregation of African-American people,” Devine told The Hill. “In the first scene there are no white people at all, in the second … it is all African Americans except possibly one person, [whose race] you can’t really tell.”
Devine said he believes these images were selected intentionally to invoke race and the controversy involving Wright, the president’s former pastor.
“As someone who does this for a living, there is absolutely no way that’s not intentional,” Devine said. “There is no other rational explanation for that scene other than to suggest a racial reference, and most likely invoke Jeremiah Wright.”
