The Los Angeles Times has continued its racial attack on California gubernatorial challenger Larry Elder (R), this time on the news pages rather than in the opinion pages, with an article questioning his ties to the local black community.
The Thursday article, by Donovan X. Ramsey, is titled, “Larry Elder calls himself ‘Sage From South Central.’ But his ties to Black L.A. are fraught.”
Ramsey cites “critics” of Elder who “say he’s the Black face of white supremacy and his proposals would harm Black and Latino Californians” — linking to the Times‘ own opinion column, “Larry Elder is the Black face of white supremacy. You’ve been warned.”
The article follows the editorial line that black people with conservative political views can never be accepted as black. “I think most Black people know that Larry Elder is a sellout,” one person is quoted as saying.
