We watch a lot of cringy footage here at Twitchy. Hey man, when you cover Twitter for a living, especially political Twitter, it’s just what you do. And we have seen some super cringy videos … but this one of Pete Buttigieg talking about ‘dark money’ to a room full of black people could well be the most cringy ever.
Pete accidentally calls “dark money” “black money” while speaking to a room of black people. He then makes it so awkward that it physically hurt to watch this video.

OMG. Did he really say that?
African American money.
Dark money, Pete.
The look on the host’s face … annnd we’re dead.

100%. A room full of black people and it's the first time he's used that term. Got caught on himself.

Can you imagine the fit the media would throw if Trump slipped like that?! ROFL

I can't fathom why people keep saying that Buttigieg has a problem with minorities.

And what’s the deal with his suit matching the backdrop?
It’s "Money of Color.” 🙄
