Slick Willie wants you to question your motives very, very deeply. Then, after you've examined your conscience and rid yourself of every vestige of bias, bigotry, intolerance, small-mindedness, etc., surely you'll see the light and support Slick Willie and those he supports, like Mayor [David Dinkins]. Merely a matter of transcending your prejudices and achieving a state of Slick Willie-like enlightenment, to which, Slick Willie is sure, we all should aspire.
Oh, the rather serious problem with Slick Willie's analysis, of course, is that Mayor Dinkins is the incumbent. Got elected four years ago. A sufficient number of New Yorkers - white, black, brown, yellow, Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, whatever - voted for him because they believed he was the man for the mayoralty. Many of those who voted for Dinkins in '89 are disappointed with the result. They're thinking about voting for [Rudolph Giuliani] this time. Where is racism a factor in this - other than in the manipulative mind of Slick Willie?
