The Race Card: Congressman Charles Rangel: "You Have to Play This Filthy Obsene Game"

Was Vice President Joe Biden resorting to the dirtiest political trick known to politics by playing the race card earlier this month when he was speaking to a mostly African-American audience in Virginia? With a straight face White House Press Secretary Jay Carney denied it as did people on the Obama campaign team.
However, Charles Rangel, one of the longest standing veterans in Congress, a Democrat who has represented Harlem for decades said, "You bet your ass he was."

In an interview that can be seen here Rangel said using race-based fears in negative ads is necessary to win. Speaking candidly in an interview with Roberto Perez Rangel had plenty to say about the words Joe Biden used to manipulate a mostly black Virginia audience. In an African-American vernacular Biden said, "They going to put y’all back in chains.” Rangel said, “Was he talking about slavery? You bet your ass he was. Was he using the vernacular? Yes, he was. Did he think it was cute? Yes, he did. Was it something stupid to say? You bet your life it was stupid."
Rangel went on to say, "If you want to win you have to play this filthy obsene game of negative ads."
