Why does Obama copy the great racist Malcom X in his last speech?

Obama the race baiter strikes again and this time in the words of super Muslim and racist Malcolm X. Coincidence?

"They're trying to bamboozle you. It's the same old okie-doke. Y'all know about okie doke, right? ... They try to bamboozle you. Hoodwink ya. Try to hoodwink ya.”

- Barack Obama in a speech January 24, 2008

"You've been hoodwinked. You've been had. You've been took. You've been led astray, led amok. You’ve been bamboozled."

- Malcolm X

____________________________

If any other candidate gave a speech that included phrases from, say, a white power leader, he/she would be berated by the Obama campaign and the media as a racist and the world would come to end.

It's this kind of astounding double standards that will keep America from voting for this con man Obama.

    It is not to get the black votes. It is to get votes. Maybe to even get heard. It has nothing to do with a race. Malcom X wasn't as racist as he was just mad. I mean all the white people from that time did treat us like dirt. Didn't they? Malcom probably believed in eye for an eye not turn the other cheeck like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Maybe he was just talking about George Bush though. Did you ever consider that.

    It's no different from any other white candidate quoting presidents from before the civil rights act. most of them were racists.....even the first president George Washington was a racist. and all the other posters are right he does need the black vote.....even though personally i feel that quoting Malcom X has nothing to do with it. I am more concerned about the issues. And yeah malcom x was a racist but he was racist towards people who felt that they couldn't treat him or his people like humans only because of their skin color. Malcom had a radical approach while Martin Luther King had the non-violent more tolerant approach.

    marketing ploy.

    Obama has been accused of being more "white than Black", he has had to work harder than originally believed for the Black vote. So if he starts quoting Malcolm X, it makes him appear, "black enough" for the black vote.
