Hillary's Fake Southern Accent

In describing yesterday's speeches in Selma, I wrote that Clinton shockingly assumed a fake southern accent in order to "relate" to her black audience. It honestly made me ill.

What do you think?

    she was quoting the lyrics of a slave spiritual, sung in that voice. Read the entire speech. Look up "context" in the dictionary.

  2. That's the point! Clinton and jf believe that in order to recite a song sung by slaves one should do it with a "slave" accent?

    That's ridiculous, and racist!

    BTW: I watched every second of that speech live and I can tell you that she used that phoney accent throughout. Pathetic.
