A politician is accused of running a racist campaign because he's getting a black family to star in TV ads and fliers. It's terrible that this politician dares to say that New York City is really "two cities" because of great divisions of class and wealth.
It's just wrong to use a family like that as props in a political campaign. Mayor Bloomberg thinks it's wrong even though the family in question is actually that of his opponent. "It's comparable to me pointing out I'm Jewish in attracting the Jewish vote," Bloomberg said recently.
