A study by Cydney Dupree, assistant professor of organizational behavior at the Yale School of Management, found that liberals talk down to blacks. The research found that Democratic candidates used fewer competence-related words in speeches to audiences consisting mostly of minorities than they did in speeches to mostly white audiences. "It was kind of an unpleasant surprise to see this subtle, but persistent effect," Dupree lamented. "Even if it's ultimately well-intentioned, it could be seen as patronizing."
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez defended the practice of talking down to minorities and cited his Party's recent success in taking back the majority in the House of Representatives as "proof that this strategy works."
"Since we can't compete on the basis of policies that will truly benefit minorities we have to have a strategy that compensates for this deficiency," Perez explained. "By dumbing down our language so we sound more like the ignorant and uneducated voters who form our core constituency we feel we can win their trust. Our candidates may be millionaires, but if they don't sound educated that will be overlooked."
Perez also expressed gratitude "for our friends in the media for not calling us out on this condescending practice. The slightest hint of condescension by a Republican will bring a firestorm of criticism from the folks at CNN, MSNBC, and others. This allows us to paint them as racist or worse. Is it a double standard? Yes, but since the end result is desirable our use of this strategy is, in my mind, vindicated."

Fake...but accurate...and right on the money.
Anyone with their eyes open knows perfectly well that this is exactly right.
This can only be identified as satire because a RAT was caught telling the truth.
Liberals pretend to care for blacks. If a black says they support republicans or conservative values, then it’s shows their true color. They only care for blacks if they control them.
