Luke Campbell Excluded From Spanish-Only Mayoral Debate
Luke Campbell Accuses University Of Holding Racist Mayoral Debate
Luther Campbell’s campaign run for Mayor of Miami just got racist.
According to reports, Luke Campbell is one of seven Miami candidates excluded from a recent mayoral debate held at the Florida International University.
The debate was restricted to Spanish-speaking candidates only, and Campbell, along with candidate Roosevelt Bradley are calling foul.
A report by the Daily Mail stated the following:
Speaking to CBS Miami, Luther Campbell – a former rap star and African American candidate for mayor – said he was appalled at what he called a ‘Cuban-only forum’.
He said: ‘The university is having a Cuban-only forum, which is wrong to the students, because the students are from all different races and all different cultures and all the students don’t speak only Spanish.’
Roosevelt Bradley, another black candidate, said he was ‘outraged’ that the publicly funded university allowed what he called a ‘polarising and divisive event’ to be held on the campus.
He said: ‘This turns the clock back 50 years on race and ethnic relations.’
Campbell could simply hold his own debate in a Miami strip club, and discuss his views on taxing strippers.
On second thought, that might not go over too well with the public.
Despite how outraged Campbell and Bradley are over being left out of the debate, they have less than two weeks to work their campaigns.
The election takes place on May 24.
