Arthur Davis: Every Black Person in The Room Knew What “Ya’ll” Was

Former Alabama Democratic Representative Artur Davis, who also co-chaired Obama’s 2008 campaign and seconded his nomination at the convention, has basically done a full turnaround; he now officially supports Romney and will be a speaker at the Republican National Convention.

Angered by Joe Biden’s comments, Davis told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer:

I know what Joe Biden was doing yesterday and every black person in the room knew who the y’all was, they knew what the chains were about, knew what the metaphor was. And I will give that audience credit… It’s a divisive tactic that’s insulting to African-Americans, it’s insulting to the American people, it’s an insult to the legacy that he used to build up as an orator that used to inspire people … and it ought to embarrass President Obama.”
