I couldn't make this story up if I tried to. I've been meaning to write about this story for about a week. All I can say is that I just love what happened!!I still laugh when I think about it. What are the odds of a white conservative Republican male being elected to any public office position in an area that is predominately made up of black Democrats? The odds are as good as using a sling shot to hit a moving target five hundred feet away. It's not impossible for a white person to be elected in a mostly black city or district. if the white guy is a Democrat. Dave Wilson is a white conservative Republican who ran for a seat on the Houston Community College board. Houston is a mostly black city. So how did Mr. Wilson pull off this Mission Impossible task? He did it in the most bizarre and imaginable way possible and in the process beat the 24 year black incumbent. He ran his campaign by making the voters think that he was a black guy!
There should be a comedy movie made about Dave Wilson's campaign. It was sheer political brilliance how he was able to play the voters of Houston's racial voting habits against them. Oh well, fools get played if they don't pay attention. By Houston residents focusing on the race of the candidates, they overlooked just who they were voting for. Again, this is just too funny!!
