BET Founder Says: Obama Not Ready for Prime Time

The billionaire founder of Black Entertainment Television says Barack Obama would not be a leading presidential candidate if he were white and that the Illinois senator’s campaign has ‘a hair-trigger on anything racial.’

‘Geraldine Ferraro [was] right,’ [Bob] Johnson added. ‘The problem is, Geraldine Ferraro is white. This campaign has such a hair-trigger on anything racial it is almost impossible for anybody to say anything.’

What’s your opinion about Mr. Johnson’s comments, Rev. Wright?
