President Barry Obama is the first African-American to be elected as the U.S. President. Nevertheless, many White Democrat Party candidates are refusing to meet Obama on the mid-term elections campaign trail.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, "In addition to a Milwaukee visit on Monday, President Barack Obama will return to Wisconsin before Nov. 4 to campaign for Democratic candidate for governor Mary Burke, a party spokesman said Thursday. The announcement made to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel came swiftly after Republicans criticized Burke for saying she couldn't appear with Obama during his Labor Day visit to Milwaukee because it was an official stop, not a campaign event."
Nevertheless, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, a Republican, is quoted as saying that, "Important for me on behalf of all the people in the state of Wisconsin to officially greet the president and thank him for his presence here."
As reported by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, "Burke's campaign had strenuously objected to the GOP claims she was ducking the president because of his lackluster approval rating, saying that the former Trek Bicycle Corp. executive had already requested a campaign visit from Obama for a public event and could back that up."
White Democrats might claim to be racially tolerant, but that doesn't mean it's true.
