Nader Says Obama "Trying To Talk White"

Uh yeah, because Nader has always made addressing POC issues a priority..? There are numerous places where I wish Obama spoke louder (and leaned further left), but these communities Nader says Obama is neglecting are basically the same ones I've usually felt Nader was neglecting..

Nader: Obama 'talking white'

"There's only one thing different about Barack Obama when it comes to being a Democratic presidential candidate. He's half African-American," Nader said. "Whether that will make any difference, I don't know. I haven't heard him have a strong crackdown on economic exploitation in the ghettos. Payday loans, predatory lending, asbestos, lead. What's keeping him from doing that? Is it because he wants to talk white? He doesn't want to appear like Jesse Jackson? We'll see all that play out in the next few months and if he gets elected afterwards..."

...Nader said he is not impressed with Obama and that he does not see him campaigning often enough in low-income, predominantly minority communities where there is a "shocking" amount of economic exploitation...
