I can't say as much for Amos Brown though. His column this week explains why the 7th District representative is only supposed to represent the interests of blacks and how Eric Dickerson isn't talking to the black community because he hadn't appeared on Brown's radio talk show--that is until last week. Brown writes:
From his heavenly residence, Rev. Mozel Sanders got Eric Dickerson to do what he hadn't done this entire fall campaign--come speak to our black community via its Black media.
Dickerson came, uninvited, to WTLC's "Afternoons with Amos" Mozel Sanders Thanksgiving Dinner fundraising luncheon Monday. For the first time since the primary, Dickerson spoke to our black community, through its Black media; after publicly saying he wouldn't.
Brown goes on to complain about biased polls and to trash Dickerson's campaign, which he refers to as "Black-hating blacks." He says, "I'd like to tell you where Eric Dickerson stands on the issues, but I can't because until Monday he refused to speak to Black folks via Black media." "Preferring to communicate through right-wing radio talk shows and racist, hatemongering websites," he adds. Dickerson's greatest sin, if Brown is to be believed, is being both black and Republican. Apparently, Brown would have us believe that the only way to communicate to Indianapolis' African-American community is through him. Brown might want to read and listen to his own words before he accuses others of being "racist" and "hatemongering."
