What's So Bad About That Bill White-MLK-Obama Ad, Anyway?
Ever since Isiah Carey broke the story on his Insite blog, most of the other media outlets in town have followed up with items on the allegedly offensive advertisement that Mayor Bill White took out in the Houston Defender, a black paper, for Martin Luther King Day.
This is, supposedly, a terrible thing because it equates White with two icons of the black community.
What the critics fail to realize, however, is that the ad is simply derived from the mayor's standard template for such things.
We've gotten a peak at the Christmas ad he's planning to take out.
