Obama's Racial Pandering
Last year I posted about his racially charged comments implying that racists are Republicans.
Are some voters not going to vote for me because I’m African-American? Those are the same voters who probably wouldn’t vote for me because of my politics,” he said.(Full Story)
Ever since then I have considered him a man who, at least in part, defines himself and everyone else by race, backed up by statements he made in his first book, that
he and a black friend would sometimes speak disparagingly “about white folks this or white folks that, and I would suddenly remember my mother's smile, and the words that I spoke would seem awkward and false.”. Frankly, I wasn't surprised that Obama was a patron of a church that was so focused on race. What infuriates me is for Obama to somehow imply--against his former statements and memoirs--that he is an authority on positive race relations and that he will bring unity. You don't unite by calling your opponents racists.
As a result, he concluded that “certain whites could be excluded from the general category of our distrust."
