kamau bakariIn the just concluded US midterm elections in which Republicans took control of the house of representatives, a Kenyan… or rather a man with a Kenyan name was vying for Congress.

Kamau Bakari was an independent candidate in Nevada’s 1st Congressional District. He emerged a distant last in a race where Democrat Dina Titus was re-elected.

Throughout the race, Kamau was the clear underdog and the only reason he made some news was because of the endorsement he received from famous Racist, Anti-government rancher Cliven Bundy.

The two appeared together in an ad.

“This is one white man who’s not scared to talk about race,” Bundy says in the ad for Kamau. “I dare you to come to Las Vegas and talk to us.”

“And don’t give us that ‘you’re too busy’ stuff,” Bakari says. “You weren’t too busy to go to Ferguson, Missouri.”

Here’s the video.

Don’t get ahead of yourself Kenyans… the guy’s accent screams a man who has been in the US all his life. He’s probably never stepped on Kenyan soil.

But hey, he had some cool graphics.
