Chris Matthews: White People Like Their Black Folks To Be Winners

“You know,” muses Hardball host Chris Matthews in the clip above, “a lot of white people root for black athletes because they’re winning for the home team. People are quite willing to pick up black heroes, if they’ll win for their side.” It’s good advice for the Obama team: Remember how all the Caucasians in Chicago hated black person Michael Jordan until the Bulls started winning championships? Once that happened, it was almost as if he was as good as white people! Barack just needs to work on his perimeter shooting a bit and the race is over. Also, he should consider putting Scottie Pippen on the ticket. [Think Progress]
