“Some of us in the black community, we went for it — saying that David Dinkins played tennis too much, like there’s something wrong with staying in shape; that he shouldn’t have had on a tuxedo, like he was supposed to go to a formal affair in blue jeans.”
“And we inadvertently in our passion beat him down to where the result was that we got Rudy Giuliani,” added the reverend, referring the Republican unseating Dinkins within the 1993 mayoral race.
