Chavez Wants Dialogue with ‘Black Man’

Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez has predicted that Obama (whom he always refers to as “the black man”) will win on Tuesday and has offered to start a dialogue with the new administration. “We’re not asking [Obama] to be a revolutionary,” Chavez said at a public meeting. “We’re not asking him to be a socialist. We just want the black man who’s about to become president of the U.S.A. to rise up to the times that the world is facing.” More Chavez: “I want to get closer to the black man from here, because we are indigenous, blacks, Caribbeans, of South American race.” Chavez has urged Obama to end what he has termed the threats from the US toward Venezuela.
