OBAMA, A POST-RACIAL PRESIDENT? HARDLY!!!

obama 107

Have you ever noticed how it is that Barry never misses an opportunity to advance what has become his continuing claim that racism is still not only very much alive and well here in these United States, but absolutely thriving.  And it’s in listening to him that you would have to come to the conclusion that this country had managed to change very little, if at all, since before the Civil War.  Whether it’s in places with names like Cambridge, Sanford, Ferguson, Baltimore or even New York City, Barry can always be counted on to insert himself into the conversation well before any of the facts are actually known.  All the better to steer the conversation in the proper direction, don’t you see.

So once again we are witness to Barry’s eagerness to take it upon himself, and again without knowing any of the actual facts, to weigh in on the topic of race, this time following the recent, and very tragic, shooting at a Charleston, South Carolina church. On a podcast with some supposed comedian by the name of Mark Maron, Barry discussed race and gun control, and made the rather idiotic claim that the United States has not yet overcome its history of racism.  This coming from an individual who has ‘used’ his race his entire life.  Because had he been born white, and not half white, there is little chance he would have never been able to make it as far as he has.  He’s simply not that bright.

Barry said, “Racism, we are not cured of it.”  Then in behaving at his very crude and offensive best as well as beneath the dignity of his office, Barry said, “And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public. That’s not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It’s not just a matter of overt discrimination. Societies don’t, overnight, completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior.” Wouldn’t you have thought that, as president, he would have taken the opportunity to point out the very obvious differences in the behavior exhibited by those in Charleston compared to those in Ferguson or Baltimore?   But nope, he just couldn’t bring himself to do it!

Barry also said that while the country has come a long way since he was born, the legacy of slavery “casts a long shadow and that’s still part of our DNA that’s passed on.”  But when Barry, or any Democrat for that matter, brings up the topic of racism, it’s always in the same context, and they always, very conveniently, gloss over the fact that the most of prominent players involved in perpetuating the institution of racism, were, very nearly, all Democrats.  A fact that also seems to be lost on the vast majority of blacks in this country.  It’s never mentioned that those who supported slavery, who crafted Jim Crow laws, who supported segregation and created the Ku Klux Klan, were nearly all Democrats.

But look, Barry is far from being the only one desperate to make excuses for, or downplay the fact the black racism that takes place in this country, and on nearly every single day.  Juan Williams, for instance, who appeared just last night on O’Reilly, has worked very hard in his effort to not only downplay the extent of black racism in this country, but to deny that it even exists.  His rationale is that because there are more whites than there are blacks, examples of black racism are to be considered as being far too few to be considered any sort of a problem.  I guess that’s makes sense in a progressive sort of way, unless you’re the white person who gets beat up by a group of racist blacks.

But this is how accusations of racism are used by those on the left, as a political weapon to be used against opponents.  It’s only whites who are to be considered as being racist.  Liberals make the claim that it’s impossible for blacks to be racist because, again according to those on the left, racism is all about power, and it’s whites who hold all the power.  But I would argue that what racism is all about, is hate.  And it’s hate that not only resides on the left, but it thrives there.  Blacks have overwhelmingly supported the Democrat Party for over 50 years and what have they got to show for it?  Absolutely nothing, and yet blacks remain doggedly loyal and firmly on the Democrat plantation.

I would think that it would painfully obvious to anyone possessing even the slightest level of commonsense that the fact those on the left who continue to rescklessly throw around accusations of racism do so only in an effort to gain favor with the weak-minded.  And sadly, the tactic continues to demonstrate some level of success.  Which means that it will continue to be used.  And that’s not going to change until we, the American people, want it to change.  Until blacks are able to come to grips with the fact that Democrats, both white and black, have been playing them for suckers, and for decades, don’t expect to see much change when it comes to how race is treated in this country.
