In Obama's Own Words
What Obama really thinks of white folks (09:53)

wanted a race to belong to, a team
whose accomplishments would reflect well upon him. Of course, it
was unthinkable in his liberal white family to take pride in the
achievements of his mother’s race, so Obama gloried in being part of his
absent father’s race.
From his early teens onward,
Obama desperately wants to be black. In "Dreams," he writes, "I was
trying to raise myself to be a black man in America, and beyond the
given of my appearance, no one around me seemed to know exactly what
that meant." Honolulu’s paucity of African-Americans means he has to
learn to be black from the media: "TV, movies, the radio; those were
places to start. Pop culture was color-coded, after all, an arcade of
images from which you could cop a walk, a talk, a step, a style."
"...never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my
own. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa,
that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself..."

consulted his communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, about this
incident for advice. Davis responded to Obama, "What I'm trying to
tell you is, your grandmother has every right to be scared. ... She
understands that black people have a reason to hate. That's just
how it is. For your sake, I wish it were otherwise. But it's
not. So you might as well get used to it."
Later, when he moves to the South Side of Chicago in 1984, he eventually
discovers that, like his grandmother, he’s sometimes scared of black
males on the street, too.
Slippin' In To Darkness
Even through high school, he continued to
vacillate between the twin strands of his racial identity.
As a teenager,
Obama sought out gatherings on military
bases or at the University of Hawaii that were mostly attended by
"I learned to slip back and forth between my black and white worlds," he
wrote in "Dreams." "One of those tricks I had learned: People were
satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden
moves. They were more than satisfied; they were relieved -- such a
pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn't
seem angry all the time."
Obama wrote that in high school, 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."
As a result, he concluded that "certain whites could be excluded from
the general category of our distrust."
Obama enters Occidental
College in California, and was the period when Obama stopped using the nickname "Barry"
in favor of his full name.
In his college days, it was the autobiography of militant Malcolm X that grabbed his
attention more than any other black writer. "Malcolm X’s
autobiography seemed to offer something different," Obama wrote. "His
repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt poetry of his
words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new and
uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through sheer
force of will."
He added: "Malcolm’s discovery toward the end of his life, that
some whites might live beside him as
brothers in Islam, seemed to offer some hope of eventual
Some whites? -- if they are Muslims? -- all whites
have to do is to submit to Islam? -- this guy still thinks like a
In his first memoir, "Dreams," Obama included a
description of black student life at
Occidental College in Los Angeles.
"There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it
came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying
close together, traveling in packs," he wrote. "It remained
necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the
black masses, to strike out and name names."
He added: "To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends
carefully. The more politically active black students. The
foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and
Obama said he and other blacks were careful not to second-guess their
own racial identity in front of whites.
"To admit our doubt and confusion to whites, to open up our psyches to
general examination by those who had caused so much of the damage in the
first place, seemed ludicrous, itself an expression of self-hatred," he
ridiculed his Occidental black classmate for having a Caucasian
Tim was not a conscious brother. Tim wore argyle sweaters and
pressed jeans and talked like Beaver Cleaver. He planned to major
in business. His white girlfriend was probably waiting for him up
in his room, listening to country music. ..."Tim's a trip, ain't he," I
said, shaking my head. "Should change his name from Tim to Tom
[presumably a reference to Uncle Tom]."
"Dreams From My Father," pages 101-102 (paperback edition)
Slippin' In To Darkness II
Occidental College in Los
Angeles, which then had a black mayor, Tom Bradley, wasn’t black enough,
so in search of a community to belong to,
he transfers to Harlem … well,
to be precise, to that prestigious university on the edge of Harlem,
Columbia. (A recurrent theme in Obama’s career is Power to the People
gestures and Ivy League results).
He majors in
political science with a specialization in international relations.
No one -- absolutely no one -- remembers Obama at Columbia.
At Columbia, Obama disapproved of what he called
who gravitated toward whites instead of blacks. And yet after
college, he once fell in love with a white woman, only to push her away
when he concluded he would have to assimilate into her world, not the
other way around.
When he’s working on Wall Street, he’s creeped-out by his visiting
mother’s insistence on seeing her favorite film, the 1959 Brazilian
art-house classic "Black Orpheus." He belatedly
that his very fair-skinned mother is sexually attracted to dark men.
He pompously intones, "The emotions between the races could never be
pure; even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some
element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our
demons or salvation, the other race would always remain just that:
menacing, alien, and apart."
In the period from high school in Hawaii, to Columbia University and then to
the streets of Chicago as a community organizer, Obama is the classic angry
young black man,
describing his world thusly:
"We were always
playing on the white man's court -- by the white man's rules. If the
principal, or the coach, or a teacher wanted to spit in your face, he could,
because he had the power and you didn't. The only thing you could choose was
withdrawal into a smaller and smaller coil of rage."
once described the white race as "that
ghostly figure that haunted black dreams."
"That hate hadn't gone away," he wrote, blaming "white people -- some
cruel, some ignorant, sometimes a single face, sometimes just a faceless
image of a system claiming power over our lives."
graduating from college, Obama eventually went to Chicago to
interview for a job as a community organizer. His racial attitudes
came into play as he sized up the man who would become his boss.
"There was something about him that made me wary," Obama wrote. "A
little too sure of himself, maybe. And white."
"I would occasionally pick up the paper [Louis Farrakhan’s 'The
Final Call'] from these unfailingly polite men, in part out of sympathy
to their heavy suits in the summer, their thin coats in winter; or
sometimes because my attention was caught by the sensational,
tabloid-style headlines (CAUCASIAN WOMAN ADMITS: WHITES ARE THE DEVIL).
Inside the front cover, one found reprints of the minister’s
[Farrakhan’s] speeches, as well as stories that could have been picked
straight off the AP news wire were it not for certain editorial
embellishments (”Jewish Senator Metzenbaum announced today…”).
Dreams From My Father, p. 201
When he was a community organizer (age 22 prior to going to law school)
cooperated with Rafiq, a former gangster turned Nation of
Islam. He even believed that Black Nationalism was a "good
therapy" for Blacks. That was also the reason he supported Wright
("Dreams...," p. 190-200). For he shares Michelle's sentiments of
alienation, came to believe that race should trump everything and it
should be anti-white:
"all the black people who, it turned out, shared with me a voice that
whispered inside them -- You don't really belong here."
"In a sense, then, Rafiq was right when he insisted that, deep down, all
blacks were potential Nationalists. The anger was there, bottled
up and often turned inward. And . . . I wondered whether, for now
at least, Rafiq wasn't also right in preferring that that anger be
redirected; whether a black politics that suppressed rage towards white
generally, or one that failed to elevate race loyally above all else,
was a politics inadequate to the task."
"It was a painful thought to consider, as painful now as it has been
years ago. It contradicted the morality my mother had taught me, a
morality of subtle distinctions -- between individuals of goodwill and
those who wished me ill, between active malice and ignorance of
indifference. I have a personal stake in that moral framework; I'd
discovered that I couldn't escape it if I tried. And yet perhaps
it was a framework that blacks in this country could no longer afford;
perhaps it weakened black resolve, encouraged confusion within the
ranks. Desperate times called for desperate measures, and for many
blacks, times were chronically desperate. If (black) nationalism could
create a strong and effective insularity, deliver on its promise of self
respect, then the hurt it might cause well-meaning whites, of the inner
turmoil it caused people like me, would be of little consequence."
"If nationalism could deliver. As it turned out, questions of
effectiveness, and not sentiment, cause most of my quarrels with Rafiq."
In other words, Barack was willing to sacrifice his mother and his
typical white grandparents on the alter of black nationalism. His sentiments
were in line with those of Rafiq, the Nation of Islam activist.
That is the reason he chose a black nationalist church run by Reverend
Wright, who explained to him during their very first meeting ("Dreams...," p.284):
"Life's not safe for a black man in this country, Barack. Never
has been. Probably never will be."
“There’s certainly racism here. There are certain
burdens that are placed, more emotionally at this point than concretely,” Obama
“Professors may treat black students differently, sometimes by being, sort
of, more dismissive, sometimes by being more, sort of, careful because they
think, you know, they think that somehow we can’t cope in the classroom,” he
Obama sees the inner cities as the front lines of racism.
“It’s critical at this stage for people who want to see genuine change to
focus locally. And it is crucial that we figure out how to rebuild the core of
leadership and institutions in these communities,” he said.
For five years before law school, Obama took on that task in Chicago. As the
director of a program that tried to bring South Side churches, unions and block
associations together on projects, Obama was not trying to solve local problems,
he said. Instead he sought to construct something more lasting — a forum for the
community, “I’m interested in organizations, not movements, because movements
dissipate and organizations don’t,” Obama said.
America suffered when the movements of the 1960s dissipated, he said. Those
movements succeeded in raising doubts about harmful traditions of sexism and
racism, but failed to offer a viable alternative.
“Hopefully, more and more people will begin to feel
their story is somehow part of this larger story of how we’re going to reshape
America in a way that is less mean-spirited and more generous,” Obama
By Any Another Name
At age 33, Obama publishes
a 442 page book about his pursuit of a racial identity.
not a word about him pursuing a non-racial, specifically American
identity in "Dreams from My Father,
A Story of Race and Inheritance."
Obama’s book is primarily about his
rejection of his supportive white maternal extended family in favor of
his unknown black paternal extended family.
In "Dreams...," Obama meditates, "If [black] nationalism could
create a strong and effective insularity, deliver on its promise of
self-respect, then the hurt it might cause well-meaning whites, or the
inner turmoil it caused people like me, would be of little consequence."
Also in his memoir,
Obama writes of one of the watershed moments of his racial
awareness -- time and again in remarkable detail. It is a story about a Life magazine article that influenced him.
The report was about a
black man who tried to bleach his skin white. When Obama was told
no such article could be found in Life, he says "it might have been
He is 9 years old, living in Indonesia, where he and his mother moved
with her new husband, Lolo Soetoro, a few years earlier. One day
while visiting his mother, who was working at the U.S. Embassy in
Jakarta, Obama passed time by looking through several issues of Life
magazine. He came across an article that he later
describe as feeling like an "ambush attack."
The article included photos of a black man who had destroyed his skin
with powerful chemical lighteners that promised to make him white.
Instead, the chemicals had peeled off much of his skin, leaving him sad
and scarred, Obama recalled.
"I imagine other black children, then and now, undergoing similar
moments of revelation," Obama wrote of the magazine photos in "Dreams."
no such photo exists, according to historians at the magazine.
No such photos, no such article. When asked about the discrepancy,
Obama said in a recent interview, "It might have been an Ebony or it
might have been ... who knows what it was?" (At the request of the
Tribune, archivists at Ebony searched their catalogue of past articles,
none of which matched what Obama recalled.)
In fact, it is surprising, based on interviews with more than two dozen
people who knew Obama during his nearly four years in Indonesia, that it
would take a photograph in a magazine to make him conscious of the fact
that some people might treat him differently in part because of the
color of his skin.
In October, Obama publishes "The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on
Reclaiming the American Dream," which details his views of politics and
his vision for the future of
the U.S. government and its people.
“Malcolm X’s autobiography seemed to offer something different,” Obama
wrote. "His repeated acts of self-creation spoke to me; the blunt
poetry of his words, his unadorned insistence on respect, promised a new
and uncompromising order, martial in its discipline, forged through
sheer force of will."
He added: "Malcolm’s discovery toward the end of his life, that
some whites might live beside him as
brothers in Islam, seemed to offer some hope of eventual
This is the thinking of a Muslim.
As another example, consider Obama's
stirring tale for the Selma audience
about how he had been conceived by his parents, Barack Obama Sr. and Ann
Dunham, because they had been inspired by the fervor following the
"Bloody Sunday" voting rights demonstration that was commemorated March
4. "There was something stirring across the country because of
what happened in Selma, Alabama," he said, "because some folks are
willing to march across a bridge. So they got together and Barack
Obama Jr. was born. So don't tell me I don't have a claim on
Selma, Alabama. Don't tell me I'm not coming home to
Obama was born in 1961, and the Selma march occurred four years later,
in 1965. The New York Times reported that when the senator was
asked about the discrepancy later that day, he clarified: "I meant the
whole civil rights movement."
Cornel West was on fire. Bobbing in his chair, his hands
sweeping across the stage, the brilliant and bombastic scholar was
lambasting Barack Obama's campaign. Before a black audience, at an
event outside Atlanta called the State of the Black Union, West was
questioning why Obama was 600 miles away, announcing his bid for the
White House in Springfield, Ill. Did he really care about black
voters? What did that say about his willingness to stand up for
what he believes?
"He's got large numbers of white brothers and sisters who have fears and
anxieties and concerns, and he's got to speak to them in such a way that
he holds us at arm's length," West said, pushing his hand out for
emphasis. "So he's walking this tightrope." West challenged
the candidate to answer a stark set of questions: "I want to know how
deep is your love for the people, what kind of courage have you
manifested in the stances that you have and what are you willing to
sacrifice for. That's the fundamental question. I don't care
what color you are. You see, you can't take black people for
granted just 'cause you're black."
A few days later, West was sitting in his Princeton office after class
when the phone rang. It was Barack Obama. "I want to clarify
some things," the candidate calmly told the professor of religion and
African-American studies. Over the next two hours, Obama explained
his Illinois state Senate record on criminal justice and affordable
health care. West asked Obama how he understood the legacy of
Martin Luther King Jr. and interrogated him about a single phrase in
Obama's 2004 Democratic-convention speech: that America was "a magical
place" for his Kenyan father. "That's a Christopher Columbus
experience," West said. "It's hard for someone who came out of
slavery and Jim Crow to call it a magical place. You have to be
true to yourself, but I have to be true to myself as well." A few
weeks later, the two men met in a downtown Washington, D.C., hotel to
chat about Obama's campaign staff.
Just a month after ripping
into him onstage, West endorsed Obama and signed up as an unpaid

Sunday, 07/22, Obama was in South Florida
address the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), the nation's largest
Hispanic so-called civil rights group.
La Raza is Spanish for "the race," although NCLR claims it means
"community" on their website. La Raza
supports legislation such as the Civil Liberties Restoration Act,
which would roll back policies adopted after Sept. 11 designed to
protect national security. It supports the "DREAM Act," which
would mandate states to offer in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens
-- thus providing them with benefits not available to U.S. citizens from

Act of 2003" and the "Homeland Security Enhancement Act" would give

"While the safety and security of our communities and our country are of
the utmost importance, new policies that would allow local police
departments to enforce federal civil immigration law will hinder
terrorist and other criminal investigations, and have a serious negative
impact on Latino communities," La Raza explains.
The group also supports legislation to ensure illegal immigrants'
ability to obtain driver's licenses.
La Raza continues to lobby the Senate for virtual open borders and
amnesty for illegal aliens.
La Raza's motto is, "Por La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada,"
which translates to ""For The Race everything. Outside The Race,

No surprise here -- a Marxist addressing Marxists.
Democratic presidential candidate U.S. Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) sits
with race-baiter, Rev. Al Sharpton, during a campaign stop at Sylvia's
restaurant in New York, November 29, 2007.

words that reach out to his community, but also as an example of how
he's using race whenever he can and when it suits his needs and benefits
As the South Carolina primary campaign built to a climax, Obama
addressed a largely African-American audience in Sumter.
In this video,
Obama drops his eloquent Harvard accent, and says, "They're trying
to bamboozle you. It's the same old okie-dokie. -- Y'all
know about okie dokie, right? -- They try to bamboozle you. -- Hoodwink
ya. Try to hoodwink ya. Alright. -- I'm having too much fun
here. ... "
This speech had been borrowed from one of Obama's heroes, Malcolm X, who
said, "You've been hoodwinked. You've been had. You've been took.
You've been led astray, led amok. You’ve been bamboozled."
It is strange that a candidate, who belongs to an "Afrocentric" church,
that bestows awards on Louis Farrakhan, would borrow from Malcolm X, who
was a spokesman for the Nation of Islam, right before complaining
about e-mails claiming he is Muslim.
On March 6th, Bill O’Reilly
asked Al Sharpton the $64,000 question -- what happens if Hillary
Clinton gets the nomination even if Barack Obama comes into Denver
leading in pledged delegates? After the losses in Texas and Ohio,
the new meme has the super-delegates wondering whether Obama can win a
general election. If Hillary can make it closer by the time the
convention rolls around, say to within 70 or so pledged delegates, the
super-delegates will throw their support to the most competitive
After hesitating a bit, Sharpton makes it clear that he and his
supporters won’t accept a brokered outcome, saying:
"Superdelegates are not Supermen. The party can’t say it
represents the concept of one-man, one-vote democracy and then make
backroom deals that ignore the popular vote and the will of the
electorate. They will march in the street to protest a Hillary
nomination if she comes into Denver trailing Obama."
Sharpton’s threat gives Obama potent leverage to keep from accepting a
convention demotion. If his supporters start talking about
third-party movements, the Democrats are finished up and down the ticket
-- and they know it.
March 12th, former vice presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro, who

"They made this a divisive issue, not me."
Former Maryland Lieutenant Gov. Michael Steele, who is black, said that
Ferraro’s comments are true, and the fact she can’t speak them "goes to

Obama's own first book
suggests that some elements of Wright's style that are now
controversial -- particularly on race -- aren't really new.
On Page 293 of my edition of "Dreams for My Father," Obama recounts
Wright's "The Audacity of Hope" sermon. (I
linked a version of this earlier today.)
Obama quotes this passage:
"It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in
a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white
folks’ greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy
in another hemisphere…That’s the world! On which hope sits!"

Obama also has the
endorsement of the New Black Panther Party.
"Barack Obama represents 'Positive Change' for
all of America. Obama will stir the 'Melting Pot' into a better "Molten
America.'" Read The New Black Panther Party
Platform from the anti-white and virulently anti-Semitic black supremacist party
that has endorsed Obama on the presidential candidate's
Following criticism earlier this month of an online endorsement from the
New Black Panther Party (NBPP), Obama's campaign removed the
controversial organization from the presidential candidate's official
website. The NBPP had been a registered team member and blogger on
Obama's "MyObama" campaign site.
But the NBPP endorsement was reposted on Obama's official website today.
"Obama is capable of stirring the 'melting pot' into a better 'molten
America,'" states the NBPP endorsement posted on Obama's site.
The NBPP is a controversial black extremist party whose leaders are
notorious for their racist statements and for leading anti-white
Malik Zulu Shabazz, NBPP national chairman, who has given scores of
speeches condemning "white men" and Jews, confirmed his organization's
endorsement of Obama in a recent interview with WND.
"I think the way Obama responded to the attack on him and the attempt to
sabotage his campaign shows true leadership and character. He had
a chance to denounce his pastor and he didn't fall for the bait.
He stood up and addressed real issues of racial discord," stated Shabazz.
Shabazz boasted he met Obama last March when the politician attended the
42nd anniversary of the voting rights marches in Selma, Ala.
"I have nothing but respect for Obama and for his pastor," said Shabazz,
referring to Jeremiah Wright, Obama's pastor of nearly 20 years.
It is Wright's racially charged and anti-Israel remarks that were widely
circulated this month, landing the presidential candidate in hot water
and prompting Obama to deliver a major race speech in which he condemned
Wright's comments but not the pastor himself.
Speaking to WND, Shabazz referred to Obama as a man with a "Muslim
background, a man of color."
Shabazz's NBPP's official platform states "white man has kept us deaf,
dumb and blind," refers to the "white racist government of America,"
demands black people be exempt from military service and uses the word
"Jew" repeatedly in quotation marks.
Shabazz has led racially divisive protests and conferences, such as the
1998 Million Youth March in which a few thousand Harlem youths
reportedly were called upon to scuffle with police officers and speakers
demanded the extermination of whites in South Africa.
The NBPP chairman was quoted at a May 2007 protest against the 400-year
celebration of the settlement of Jamestown, Va., stating, "When the
white man came here, you should have left him to die."
He claimed Jews engaged in an "African holocaust," and he has promoted
the anti-Semitic urban legend that 4,000 Israelis fled the World Trade
Center just prior to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
When Shabazz was denied entry to Canada last May while trying to speak
at a black action event, he blamed Jewish groups and claimed Canada "is
run from Israel."
Canadian officials justified the action stating he has an "anti-Semitic"
and "anti-police" record, but some reports blamed what was termed a
minor criminal history for the decision to deny him entry.
He similarly blamed Jews for then-New York Mayor Rudi Giuliani's initial
decision, later rescinded, against granting a permit for the Million
The NBPP's deceased chairman, Khallid Abdul Muhammad, a former Nation of
Islam leader who was once considered Louis Farrakhan's most trusted
adviser, gave speeches referring to the "white man" as the "devil" and
claiming that "there is a little bit of Hitler in all white people."
In a 1993 speech condemned by the U.S. Congress and Senate, Muhammad,
lionized on the NBPP site, referred to Jews as "bloodsuckers," labeled
the pope a "no-good cracker" and advocated the murder of white South
Africans who would not leave the nation subsequent to a 24-hour warning.
All NBPP members must memorize the group's rules, such as that no party
member "can have a weapon in his possession while drunk or loaded off
narcotics or weed," and no member "will commit any crimes against other
party members or black people at all."
The NBPP endorses Obama on its own page of the presidential candidate's
official site that allows registered users to post their own blogs.
The group labels itself on Obama's site as representing "Freedom,
Justice, and Peace for all of Mankind." It links to the official
NBPP website, which contains what can be arguably regarded as hate
The NBPP previously endorsed Obama on the presidential candidate's site,
but following publicity of that endorsement, the Obama campaign removed
the NBPP posting.
"It's our policy [to remove] any content generated by a group that
advocates violence," explained Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor to
Before the campaign removed the party's page, Obama spokeswoman Tiffany
Edwards told FoxNews.com the NBPP endorsement on Obama's website "has
nothing to do with us."
"People can form their own groups," she said. "It's not something that
the campaign -- it's not something that we've done."
While it appears anyone can initially sign up as a registered supporter
on Obama's site, it isn't clear whether the campaign monitors the site
or approves users. There is a link on each blog page for users to
report any abusers, such as those who post controversial entries, to the
Shabbazz chalked up the Obama campaign's initial removal of his NBPP
endorsement from the website to "the game of politics."
"The Obama camp's move to remove our blog doesn't mean much because I
understand politics. We still completely support Obama as the best
Obama 'less biased' on Israel
Shabazz said that aside from promoting black rights, he also supports
Obama because he may take what he called a "less biased" policy on the
"I have hopes he will change the U.S. government's position toward the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict because our position has been unwarranted
bias. Time and time again the U.S. vetoed resolutions in the U.N.
Security Council condemning [Israeli] human rights violations. ... I
hope he shifts policy," Shabazz said.
But he added he doesn't believe Obama could change America's policy
regarding Israel very much since, he said, "other, powerful lobbies"
control U.S. foreign policy.
More White People
On April 7th, 2008, only a week after her husband drew throngs to Soldiers and Sailors,
wooed a small crowd at Skibo Gymnasium on Wednesday.
Skibo’s risers were packed with community members and students from many
of Pittsburgh’s universities. The rally was staffed by volunteers from a
number of Carnegie Mellon student organizations, including Carnegie
Mellon Students for Barack Obama, Student Senate, AB Political Speakers,
and College Democrats.
While the crowd was indeed diverse, some students at the event
questioned the practices of Mrs. Obama’s event coordinators, who
handpicked the crowd sitting behind Mrs. Obama. The Tartan’s
correspondents observed one event coordinator say to another, "Get me
more white people, we need more white people." To an Asian
girl sitting in the back row, one coordinator said, "We’re moving you,
sorry. It’s going to look so pretty, though."
"I didn’t know they would say, 'We need a white person here,'" said
attendee and senior psychology major Shayna Watson, who sat in the crowd
behind Mrs. Obama. "I understood they would want a show of
diversity, but to pick up people and to reseat them, I didn’t know it
would be so outright."
Mrs. Obama was introduced by Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of former
Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. John Kerry (D–Mass.).
The more I learn about Obama, the more there is to dislike. When
you read the description of Barack's home life, it is hard to square his
background with someone who views America as a racist, oppressive
Here is a half-black man, abandoned by his black father and placed in
the care of his white salesman grandfather and bank VP grandmother. From
these obviously humble, ordinary beginnings, America has provided him
the opportunity to attend the finest universities in the land, become a
multimillionaire, and made him one of the 102 most powerful people in
the entire nation.
You would think that such a man would view America as Ronald Reagan did,
or at least as JFK did. After all of the riches, power, and
accolades bestowed upon him, he and his family still see America through
the eyes of Kruschev, Castro, and Ahmedinijad.
Isn't that the most alarming thing about the man? He a walking,
breathing exemplar of what is great about America, and yet he believes (
or pretends to) that it is a cruel, unfair, and racist nation and
fosters this notion in the minds of others. I might understand his
attitude and that of those around him if because of his skin, his
interracial family, the origin of his father, or his lack of privilege
in childhood he had ended up bussing tables or working as a night
janitor. The truly awful thing is that here is a man who KNOWS for
a fact the truth about America, knows it is THE land of opportunity,
knows that it is the fairest society on earth, the most generous society
to the outsider, the abandoned child, the mixed-race boy of meager
means, and yet he misleads those who have not come as far as he has.
Surely he is smart enough to know the reason that some make it in
America and some do not and that even those who do not are allowed to
grow fat on the backs of the American People.
The putrid venom that he and his campaign are vending demoralizes those
who would seek to follow in his own footsteps, widens the divisions
between us, and pays back the kindness, equity, and generosity shown to
him, with a billy-club to the head.
I ask you all what will happen if such a man becomes the most powerful
man on Earth? I cannot imagine any good will come of it.
You think the media will question Obama about this? He says we need to
discuss race. I’d love to hear him discuss this. Perhaps I’m just a
"typical white person," but I think the takeaway quote here is:
"That’s Just How White Folks Will Do You." -- B. H. Obama
"Any distinction between good and bad whites held negligible meaning.
We were always playing on the white man’s court…by the white man’s
rules." -- B. H. Obama
"Barack Obama hangs around people who are
bitter to the core. His entire inner circle -- his wife -- his
pastor -- is filled with
almost insane rage. Barack Obama has been attracted to extreme
radical elements his entire life."
Senator Obama is one of
key leaders in a campaign to make Juneteeth Day a National Holiday
in the United States. Juneteeth Day occurs on every June 19th, the
anniversary of General Granger announcing the emancipation of slaves in
the South West. The Holiday would be celebrated on the third
Friday in June. Here's what the NYT wrote about it on 2004:
"Most gatherings are decidedly upbeat, but the sobering reason for the
holiday has also been part of Juneteenth's growth. Dr. Ronald
Myers, the leader of a movement to make Juneteenth a national holiday,
says June 19 should be an annual remembrance of the horrors of slavery"
We never got our apology, so we need this holiday to remind us that we
must not forget," said Dr. Myers, who spoke yesterday at a Juneteenth
event at the Capitol led by Representative Danny K. Davis, Democrat of
Illinois." New York Times, 6/19/04
According to the latest press release below from the organization
leading the campaign, a victory for Obama will likely lead to the
introduction of this holiday. Another example of the kind of
"uniting" we can expect from the Senator who appears to be becoming a
lightning rod for creating racial disharmony in the USA.
Senator Barack Obama has been a key sponsor of
Juneteenth legislation in the Senate and keynote speaker at the
annual Juneteenth congressional reception.
Advocates say, Juneteenth is as deserving of recognition as Independence
Day. "We may have gotten there in different ways and at different
times," says Meyers of blacks and whites, "but you can't really
celebrate freedom in America by just going with the Fourth of July."
A special U.N.
human rights investigator will visit the United States this month to
probe racism, an issue that has forced its way into the race to secure
the Democratic Party's presidential nomination.
The United Nations said Doudou Diene would meet federal and local
officials, as well as lawmakers and judicial authorities during the May
19-June 6 visit.
"The special rapporteur will...gather first-hand information on issues
related to racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related
intolerance," a U.N. statement said on Friday.
Doudou is a citizen of Senegal, an African
republic spawned by France. Muslims comprise 94% of the
Update -- 5/23/08: "Islamophobia" will be "high on the
agenda" of the UN’s visiting human rights investigator, said Kareem
Shora, national executive director of the American-Arab Anti
Discrimination Committee (ADC).
Doudou Diene, a UN special envoy, began his three-week investigation on
Monday. He will assess "racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia
and related intolerance" in the United States during meetings with
officials, lawmakers and campaigners. The Senegalese lawyer, who
has served in the independent position since 2002, routinely visits
countries to assess racism and will report his findings to the UN Human
Rights Council next year.
Diène, a Muslim, is from Senegal, a predominantly (94%)
Muslim country, which is a source, transit, and destination country for
children and women trafficked for the purposes of forced labor and
commercial sexual exploitation.
Trafficking within the country is more prevalent than trans-border
trafficking. Boys who are students (talibe) at Koranic schools are
trafficked within the country for forced begging by their religious
teachers (marabouts), and women and girls are trafficked for domestic
servitude. Girls, and possibly adult women, are also trafficked
internally for sexual exploitation. Trans-nationally, boys are
trafficked to Senegal from Gambia, Mali, Guinea-Bissau, and Guinea for
forced begging by religious teachers. Senegalese women and girls
are trafficked to neighboring countries, the Middle East, and Europe for
domestic servitude and possibly for sexual exploitation. Reports
over the last year of large numbers of Senegalese and neighboring
country nationals being transported from Senegal to Spain appear to be
cases of smuggling and illegal migration rather than trafficking. --
Dept Trafficking in Persons Report, June, 2007
Looks like an expert on racism, racial
discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance to me.
What is the probability this guy finds examples of racism -- 101% --
102% -- more?
And the odds that he will find "Islamophobia" are off the charts.
More hate at Obama's Trinity United Christian(?)
Father Michael Pfleger, a fiery liberal social activist and a white
reverend at the African-American, St. Sabina’s Catholic Church on the
South Side of Chicago, is a longtime friend and associate of Obama.
Pfleger has known him since the presidential hopeful was a community
shows the guest-bigot delivering an amazingly hateful anti-Hillary,
anti-white tirade -- the sort of rhetoric for which he’s famous.
When the video became public, Pfleger feigned contrition -- "I regret
the words I chose on Sunday. These words are inconsistent with
Senator Obama's life and message, and I am deeply sorry if they
offended Senator Clinton or anyone else who saw them."
The real shocker here, as in all of these Trinity videos, is that the
congregation goes wild -- they love this hateful rhetoric and eat it up.
Of course, the Obamessiah is shocked and surprised!
Doing his best
Sgt. Schultz imitation, Obama feigned ignorance of Pfleger's views
and said, "I am deeply disappointed in Father Pfleger's divisive,
Pfleger is a close friend of Louis Farrakhan, has
donated to Obama's state senate and presidential campaigns, and
sat on a "Catholics for Obama" committee until a few weeks ago.
Pfleger's history of hate never stopped Obama from landing
$225,000 in grants for outreach programs run by Pfleger's church when he
was in the state legislature.
David Axelrod, Obama's chief strategist and MoveOn.org founder, said
that Father Pfleger was "remaking the face" of Chicago's South Side and
that all of Mr. Obama’s earmarks went to worthy programs like his.
says, "Affirmative action is an appropriate response to the history
of discrimination in this country."
What else would you expect an
affirmative action candidate to say?
Not So Subtle
Can you smell it? There's a faint whiff of anarchy in the air.
Nothing to get alarmed about. Not yet, anyway. Just a barely
discernible unarticulated threat, a mere suggestion of a threat. But
nonetheless it is there.
The voices are
just whispers now, soft and faraway, but they are angry and
determined: It is our time now, they are saying. You have had your
time and you have used it to oppress us, to keep us down. But it
is our time now. And you had better not interfere. For
generations we have waited for this moment and we will not be deprived.
It is our time now, and if you know what's good for you, you'd better
Of course, no one has actually come right out and said it quite this
way, but there have been hints, there is something in the air. If
Obama is not elected in November . . .
On his Fox News radio show, Tom Sullivan predicted that
African-Americans would be rioting in the streets similar to what
happened after the O.J. trial in the 1990s.
"Let me put it to you a different way. What if Barack Obama is
not -- does not win the Democratic nomination, or he does win it, and
loses in the presidential race against John McCain? Is black
America going to throw their hands up and say, 'Man, you know, I thought
we were getting somewhere in this country, but this is just a bunch of
racial bigots in this country and they still hate blacks and, I mean, if
Barack Obama can't get elected, then we're never gonna have anybody
that's a black that's gonna be elected president.' And will there
be riots in the streets? I think the answer to that is yes and
And these comments, all the way from India:
"If Obama is not elected, it would destroy America because this time
the blacks think that America has the best possible candidate that it
has got the opportunity to elect as its president."
"If Obama is not elected, the blacks would feel being cheated and would
rightfully think that a great candidate has not been chosen just because
of his skin colour and would be antagonised permanently."
Evidently "white guilt" isn't sufficient -- the
campaign that promises to "heal America" isn't above using subliminal
threats and intimidation to do it.
Apparently, the Chicago media have decided that the meme for the 2008
general election is going to be that anyone who doesn't vote for Barack
Obama is a racist because this is the second editorial (that I've seen,
anyway) in Chicago stating such a theory. Last week the Daily
Herald voiced the assumption and this week it's the Sun-Times with the
volatile Andrew Greeley taking up the cause of ridding the world of
racism one Obama vote at a time.
With all my heart -- and for the betterment of my country -- I
desperately wanted to believe that Sen. Barack Obama was not one of the
same tired voices who peddle arguments about "institutional racism."
I have heard him say that America is not about "black and white."
I was inspired when his supporters chanted at his rally on the night of
his victory in South Carolina that "race doesn't matter." I
thought his March 18th speech about race had the potential to become a
defining moment in our endless struggle to confront and conquer this
issue. I was encouraged by his perceptive acknowledgment that
affirmative action breeds resentment and hostility. As millions of
whites cast their votes for him in predominantly white states, I held
out hope that, perhaps, he truly was a transformative leader.
But a June 10th article in USA Today by DeWayne Wickham dashed my hopes
for Mr. Obama.
Mr. Wickham, who had interviewed the presumptive Democratic presidential
nominee, wrote that "Obama believes America can keep its promise to
women and blacks without dashing the hopes of working-class whites.
He doesn't think opportunity guarantees made to one group must come at
the expense of another." Then he went on to quote Obama campaign
spokeswoman Candice Toliver, who said that "Senator Obama believes in a
country in which opportunity is available to all Americans, regardless
of race, gender or economic status. That's why he opposes these
ballot initiatives, which would roll back opportunity for millions of
Americans and cripple efforts to break down historic barriers to the
progress of qualified women and minorities."
Translation: Mr. Obama supports race preferences.
All in! -- Obama plays the race card
Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama
said on Friday he expects Republicans to highlight the fact that he
is black as part of an effort to make voters afraid of him.
"They're going to try to make you afraid of me. He's young and
inexperienced and he's got a funny name. And did I mention he's
All true, of course -- but he's the one talking
about it, not the Republicans.
He said he was also set for Republicans to say "he's got a feisty wife,"
in trying to attack his wife Michelle.
Feisty isn't the word I'd use.
Considering the fact that Obama wrote, in his
first book, "I ceased to advertise my
mother’s race at the age of twelve or thirteen, when I began to suspect
that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites," -- The
Republicans ought to scare the Obamalytes by telling them that Obama is
says Republicans will use race to stoke fear.
"It is going to be very difficult for Republicans to run on their
stewardship of the economy or their outstanding foreign policy," Obama
told a fundraiser in Jacksonville, Florida. "We know what kind of
campaign they're going to run. They're going to try to make you afraid.
"They're going to try to make you afraid of me. He's young and
inexperienced and he's got a funny name. And did I mention he's black?"
He said he was also set for Republicans to say "he's got a feisty wife,"
in trying to attack his wife Michelle.
"We know the strategy because they've already shown their cards.
Ultimately I think the American people recognize that old stuff hasn't
moved us forward. That old stuff just divides us," he said.
Who keeps bringing up race? Why Obama and
all his friendly reverends. I thought he was supposed to be the
racial healer. He's just another Al Sharpton and Jess Jackson --
just a little more eloquent -- but the content is the same.
I'm A Monkey
File under -- "There's no standard like a double standard."
A Japanese cell phone company has
pulled one of its television ads that used a monkey that appears to
portray Sen. Barack Obama. (video at link)
The commercial opens with a crowd rallying behind a well-dressed monkey
speaking from a podium. The supporters are cheering and waving
signs that say "Change." In the ad, the monkey was encouraging
users to change providers.
The company behind the ad, eMobile Ltd., insists it had no idea of any
racial undertones and says the ad was just a nod at Obama’s worldwide
Eric Gan, president of eMobile, points out that their company’s mascot
is a monkey -- an animal revered in Japan -- and has been used in
"When we saw the idea for the first time, it was 'Hey, you're copying
the idea from the presidential election in the U.S." Yes, but, you
know, that's how you make a presentation. How you make an impact.
We thought it quite was interesting," he said.
Leftwing bloggers and Obamalytes immediately voiced their disapproval of
the ad and accused the company of being racist.
But, the same people that are shocked by this racist image,
this is a hoot:
Google returns 491,000 Results for a search on -- "George W.
Bush" chimp -- not a single, mistaken instance, but 491,000
purposeful instances -- the left has no problem with that, however --
Just like the attacks on John McCain, The Washington Posts attack on
conservative bloggers, the "leave my wife alone" stuff, and the
ever-ready race card, Obama, and his campaign, are all about
The Orwellian doublespeak that Obama spews in portraying himself as "a
uniter" and someone who "will bring this country together" is the polar
opposite of everything this man has said and done and would be laughable
if it were not so deadly serious.
John McCain and his Republican allies will try to scare them by saying
Obama "doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar
McCain and his campaign have studiously avoided race and certainly
didn't make the "dollar bill" crack.
But, Obama brings race into the conversation every time he opens his
mouth. Whether directly or indirectly, he's always talking about
race -- and he gets to attack McCain for free while doing it.
Obama's "little joke" was a variation on
the line he used in Berlin: "I know that I don’t look like the other
Americans who’ve previously spoken in this great city."
And, it's not the first time. Remember,
last month when Obama
tarred the McCain Campaign with this smear: "We know what kind of
campaign they’re going to run. They’re going to try to make you
"They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and
inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s
Everything is about race with Obama -- all the time -- 24/7/365 -- the
race card has become a permanent part of Obama's hand, a wild card to be
played whenever the spirit, or the circumstances, so moves him.
denying the obvious for two days, Obama's chief strategist conceded
that the Democratic presidential candidate was referring to his race
when he said Republicans were trying to scare voters by suggesting Obama
"doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills."
Obama campaign officials, lacking any example of McCain ever pointing
directly or indirectly at Obama’s race as an issue in the campaign, have
backpedaled rapidly away from any suggestion that their Republican
opponent is using the very tactics Obama suggested on Wednesday.
Campaign manager David Plouffe was pressed hard during a conference call
on Thursday for examples and could not point to any. An inquiry to
the Obama campaign later in the day produced no immediate response and
later no answer to a direct question asking for evidence to buttress
Obama’s suggestion that McCain would try to scare people into not voting
for Obama because he’s black.
In other words, the Obama campaign, including the candidate himself, has
engaged in smear tactics.
"I know that I’m not your typical presidential candidate," Obama told
executives and employees of the Schott glass company Friday afternoon,
"and I just want to be honest with you. I know that."
"And I know that the temptation is to say, 'You know what? The guy
hasn’t been there that long in Washington.' You know, 'he’s got
funny name.' You know, 'we’re not sure about him.'" Obama
continued. "And that’s what the Republicans, when they say, 'This
isn’t about issues. It’s about personalities.' What they’re
really saying is, 'We’re going to try to scare people about Barack.
So we’re going to say that you know, maybe he’s got
Muslim connections or we’re going to say that, you know, he hangs
radicals or he’s
I'm curious to know when this guy is going to
start acting like a man? For the last 8 years, the left has
savaged George Bush, but Bush bore those attacks like a man -- he just
ignored them and took care of business.
Obama needs to go back to teaching. I bet he's good at that.
Asked to explain this
totally weird comparison -- 20 years of hearing his pastor’s racist
rants vs. his grandmother’s one-time confession -- Obama replied that
his grandmother was a "typical white person."
Conclusion: Obama defends the indefensible, embraces those who say the
indefensible, and trashes the people who love him.
Why? Because the indefensible crowd speaks for him! It is
not in Obama’s nature to be aggressive and confrontational, insulting or
hurtful, vicious or adversarial. But all of these traits are
clearly in his heart and soul and psyche! Why else would he defend
Obama is a typical passive-aggressive personality who pretends to be a
nice guy by using fuzzy language and a let’s-all-get-together mantra to
seduce his acolytes, but who relies on his surrogates -- wifey,
minister, terrorist endorsements, et al -- to express his real agenda,
i.e., getting back! But getting back at whom?
My theory is that Obama wants to "get back" at all those evil
capitalists and racist entities that robbed his Marxist mother, father,
and stepfather of the respect he thought they deserved. According
to the writer Spengler in a riveting L.A. Times article, both his wife
and mother "reveal his secret: he hates America."
Monday afternoon, Ohio state representatives, Bob Hagan of
Youngstown and Tom Letson of Warren, met with reporters.
many voters who call themselves "Democrats" or "Independents", but won't
vote for Obama, have only one excuse, with Letson saying, "I would say
that a lot of it is they're not going to vote for 'the black guy'."
Hagan called the issue "unpatriotic," adding those not willing to vote
for Obama need "to face that fact. That that's not acceptable in
Both men say they will work to convince those "swing voters" to change
their minds between now and election day.
The logic of Obama Democrats -- if you don't
vote for Obama you're unpatriotic.
It is as evil to vote FOR someone because of their race as it is to vote
AGAINST someone because of their race.
"This Is A Brown Country"
Carlos thought he’d be long gone by now. The young,
college-educated New Yorker has been an illegal immigrant most his life.
By last winter, a future with few options beyond washing dishes or
working a factory assembly line had become too much for the gifted
24-year old to bear. Returning to his native Guatemala, he says,
was not an option: "I have nothing there. I cannot go and adapt to
Staying also gave him the chance to be part of the presidential
election, which he considers the most important event of his life.
"If I was in Australia right now," he says, "I’d feel like I’d left in
the middle of the battle."
For Carlos, that battle -- the election -- was personal. Some of
his relatives, like many other Latinos he knows, did not want to vote
for a black man. A natural community organizer, Carlos worked with
dozens of other young illegal immigrants, hatching a plan to shift
support in the Latino community towards Obama.
"I wasn’t able to vote in this election," Carlos says. "But I know
for sure that 27 of my relatives went to vote, and that made it bigger
than any vote I could have cast on my own."
Obama’s election has given Carlos hope for a multi-cultural nation that
has a place for immigrants like him.
"Suddenly I am the norm," Carlos says. "I’m no longer the brown
person living in the white country. Now the world knows this is a
Obama was a key player behind the mortgage crisis.
Sources point to Obama as a possible starting point
to the domino affect that lead to the housing crises we are now
facing. Check the provided links and judge for yourself.
In a 1995 case known as
Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank, Obama and his fellow attorneys
Citibank was making too few loans to black applicants and
won the case. As one commentator
noted in May 2008, legal "successes" such
as this were probably responsible for the sub-prime mortgage crisis
of 2007 AND 2008. That is, banks were not loaning to blacks whose
credit was poor. When the law forced them to lend money anyway, the
inevitable collapse occurred."
Obama was a key player in the lawsuit that started the
government on a course of forcing lenders to give more loans to
those who had poor credit. Lending companies were forced to
come up with imaginative ways of fulfilling the quotas that
required. Sub-prime lending was born as a result. The
mortgage crises was forecast by many who were able to look beyond
A Black Seat
Democratic U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush of Chicago
said today during Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s press conference that one
of the reasons former Illinois Attorney General Roland Burris, an
advocate of reparations, should be
appointed to fill President-elect Barack Obama’s U. S. Senate seat, is
because Burris is black.
Rush went on to say that it was a matter
of national importance that an African-American replace Obama in the
"Let me just remind you that there presently is no
African-American in the Senate...this is just not a state of Illinois
matter," he said. "I would ask you to not hang or lynch the appointee as
you try to castigate the appointer. Roland Burris is worthy."
So Much For Racial Healing
Thank God for and
congratulations to Barak Obama. America has gone to the
extreme to prove that racism does not exist and that everything is
racially equal and Blacks have no more reason to complain, speak of
slavery, or cry discrimination. However, their desperate attempt
to make themselves and the world believe this is true, will never work.
The mere suggestion of current headlines, articles, and newscasters
that everything is alright is embarrassing because no one in their right
mind is stupid enough to believe that. We have NOT reached the
promise land, King's dream has NOT been fulfilled, and everything is NOT
The original purpose of Afromerica was to expose the racism
that plaques this country and how it hinders Black growth in every area
of social life including, economics, education, politics, health,
justice, domestically, culturally and even psychologically. Over
the past 6 years our plan has revealed that racism is alive and well and
will continue, even if there is a Black president.
Obama was not
elected because he is Black, he was elected because people were tired of
the good ole' boy network that has ruled America for centuries.
All during the campaign, many wondered if white America would vote for a
Black man even in these desperate times, and now we know, they will.
That is a good thing and says that the majority of whites in America do
not have a real problem with race.
We must recognize however,
that there were just as many whites who did not vote for Obama as those
that did. So what does that say about that faction of whites who
did not? It says either they did not understand what was at stake
or out of sheer spite and race pride they were more willing to risk the
county's future than vote for a Black man.
More Racial Healing
Rapper, Young Jeezy proves, once and for all, that Obama's election is
truly a positive moment for race relations. In this video, he he
says, "I know

vetted this BS beforehand.

Writing about the stimulus on his blog, the diminutive Robert Reich
argues for government sponsored racism -- "But if there aren't enough skilled professionals to do the
jobs involving new technologies, the stimulus will just increase the
wages of the professionals who already have the right skills rather than

go mainly to white males who already dominate the construction trades,
many people who need jobs the most -- women, minorities, and the poor
and long-term unemployed -- will be shut out." (video)
Blacks Say Race Relations No Better
African-Americans really like Obama, but more and more feel that
race relations have not gotten better since he took office, a new
national poll found.
Ninety-six percent of African-Americans
approve of how Obama is handling his presidency, according to a
CNN/Essence Magazine/Opinion Research Corp. poll released Thursday.
During the 2008 election, 38 percent of blacks surveyed thought
racial discrimination was a serious problem. In the new survey, 55
percent of blacks surveyed
believed it was a serious problem, which is
about the same level as it was in 2000.
The poll was conducted

Capitalism Versus Racism
The political atmosphere crackles with charges of racism.
Obama’s functionaries and allies make dark insinuations about the racial
motives behind all opposition to his agenda. Tea party protests
against Big Government are portrayed as thinly veiled Klan rallies.
The boycott of Glenn Beck’s TV show is based on the idea that calling a
black liberal Democrat racist is, itself, an act of indefensible racism.
The hilariously incompetent and biased MSNBC network was so desperate to
portray town hall protesters as racists that it framed the image of a
black man holding a rifle to obscure his face, then tried to pass him
off as an armed white supremacist.
It’s not surprising to see
desperate Democrats throw gasoline on America’s simmering racial fires,
in a last-ditch effort to reverse their political fortunes. The
Left believes debates are won when the other side is silenced, not when
those listening to the debate are persuaded. Charges of racism
would not be one of their preferred weapons, if a climate of tension
didn’t exist to make them effective. Racism consistently ranks
near the top of issues Americans say they are concerned about.
Reducing racial tensions will require building a society that is the
exact opposite of the one Barack Obama favors. No system of
politics and economics is more hostile to racism than classical
liberalism combined with free-market capitalism… and none provides a
more fertile breeding ground for tension between races, sexes,
religions, and other groups than big-government socialism.
capitalist society, racism is both morally offensive and stupid.
People might harbor some prejudices in their minds -- and really, how
many of us can say we go through our whole lives without having a single
racist thought? However, overt expressions of racism are foolish,
because they are detrimental to the success of both individuals and
companies. It makes no sense to deprive your company of skilled
employees by discriminating against their skin color, or drive off large
numbers of prospective customers by insulting them. It’s equally
stupid for an individual to pass up career opportunities, or forfeit the
ability to collaborate with talented peers, due to blind prejudice.
Over time, those who persist in such foolishness will inevitably fall
behind those who rise above it.
we see the political Left accusing anyone that disagrees with them as
"racists," but really, who are the real racists.

the Press" that the inauguration of Obama is "only the down payment" on
what America owes black people.
Rev. Joseph Lowery
claims that white
people have yet to do the right thing (he's waiting for the White Man to
"embrace what is right"). Apparently those of us with White skin
are all wrongdoers, in his worldview. And in Obama's too, since he
invited him and since his camp likely vetted this BS beforehand.
Writing about the stimulus on his blog, the diminutive Robert Reich argues,
"But if there aren't enough skilled professionals to do the jobs
involving new technologies, the stimulus will just increase the wages of
the professionals who already have the right skills rather than generate
many new jobs in these fields. And if construction jobs go mainly
to white males who already dominate the construction trades, many people
who need jobs the most -- women, minorities, and the poor and long-term
unemployed -- will be shut out."
Rapper, Young Jeezy proves, once
and for all, that Obama's election is truly a positive moment for race
relations. In this video,
he he says, "I know you all are thanking a lot of people right now, the
people of Barack Obama campaign. Just everybody who did
everything, on the street getting votes and all that and sh*t. I

Every Critic A Racist
writes that during the presidential campaign, Barack Obama’s
supporters promised that his election would allow America to "transcend
race." Among the headlines:
The Boston Globe: "Obama shows an
ability to transcend race"
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
"Obama's success suggests we can transcend race"
But of course
that hasn’t happened. Jonah Goldberg writes:
It was Obama’s supporters who hinted, teased,
promised, and prophesied that Obama would help America "transcend
race." But now, it is they who shrink from their own promised
From Day 1, Obama’s supporters have tirelessly cultivated the idea
that anything inconvenient for the first black president just might be
terribly, terribly racist.
Goldberg has plenty of examples:
For instance, actress Janeane Garofalo summed up
the tea parties thusly: "This is about hating a black man in
the White House. This is racism straight up."
In an ABC News
story, with video, about how racist white militias are somehow
connected to town-hall protests, Mark Potok of the dismayingly left-wing
Southern Poverty Law Center insists Obama has "triggered fears among
fairly large numbers of white people in this country that they are
somehow losing their country."
Come on. Every president
eventually is criticized by the media -- even one as "transcendent" as
Obama. Obama’s supporters should engage his critics with facts,
not charges of racism.
Obama Is Losing The ObamaCare Argument So The
Progressives Cry Racism
A quick Google News
search on -- Obama race racist racism -- returned 1,719 results.
Here's just a few:
Jimmy Carter -- "I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely
demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the
fact that he is a black man, that he's African American."
Maureen Dowd -- "Joe Wilson yelled 'You lie! at a president who
didn’t. But, fair or not, what I heard was an unspoken word in
the air: You lie, boy!"
Joe Klein -- "...they oppose and fear him because he is black."
Rep. Hank Johnson, D-GA -- "I guess we'll probably have folks
putting on white hoods and white uniforms again and riding through
the countryside, intimidating people."
Rep. Diane Watson, D-CA -- "They are spreading fear and they're
trying to see that the first president who looks like me fails."
Bill Maher -- "To heckle a President, to shout in the middle of a
speech, would he have done that if it was a white President? I
don't think so. I think this is a southern guy who thinks, 'I can
do whatever I want when it's a black guy speaking.'"
The Left's purpose in using the "R"
word is to end the ObamaCare argument. The reason they want to end
the argument is that they are losing the argument -- and they know it.
So they are resorting to the most evil tactic imaginable -- tarring
their political opponents as racists.
It's really ironic, if you
think about it. The only reason Obama sits in the Oval Office is
his skin color. I guess you can have it both ways -- if you're a

Liberals Have Weaponized Racism
In America, liberals have weaponized racism,
just as they once weaponized cultural and economic inequities. By
weaponizing racism, they have turned it into a double edged sword,
exploiting it on the one hand to attack their political enemies and on
the other to attack members of minority groups with those same same
racist stereotypes when they step out of line. This is how liberals
routinely used racist attacks against Bush nominees, deriding them as
tokens while treating their own minority nominees as victories for
multiculturalism. So Condoleeza Rice was a "house slave" while
Sotomayor was a "wise latina." To liberals there is no inconsistency,
because by weaponizing racism, they also define racism in relation to
their own political ideology. Thus a liberal can never truly be racist,
because at the core they define racism not by discrimination or slurs
used toward a group or race, but by resistance to the progressive force
of liberalism -- which of course is inherently racist.
It is not
about race, like everything else on the left, it is about politics.
Culture and race are only vehicles for political agendas.
Multiculturalism represents the weaponization of cultures and
ethnicities for the political power of the left. They are not in fact
interested in traditions, unless those traditions can be interpreted or
adapted to suit their agendas. If not, they will manufacture traditions
and overlay them across the existing traditions. When the left wishes
to use them as agents of disruption, it will create havoc. When it
wants to climb to power on their backs, it will turn them into
marginalized voting bases. But it is never about accepting a
multiplicity of cultures, but of enforcing a single idea. Their idea.
Their way. And when seen correctly, all those facades of multiple
cultures and beliefs recede into one.

Desperate Democrats and their co-conspirators in the
media are busy trying to whip up a race war.
"The health care
bill is not the main source of this anger and never has been. It's
merely a handy excuse," Frank Rich wrote in a recent New York Times
column. Their line is that all those opposed to Obama's radical
agenda are racists who resent having a black man in the Oval Office.
It is a moldy, old smear, but as approval ratings for Obama sink below
50 percent, it is being revisited with increasing fervor.
According to the latest Gallup weekly data, only 38 percent of whites
approve of Obama's performance, down from 63 percent when he took
office. Of course, if these people were racists, they never would
have given Obama their support to begin with, but the liberal howls of
"white flight" are resistant to elementary logic.
on racial data because they want to make race the center of the
argument. This is a way to avoid the inconvenient truth that vast
segments of the electorate are becoming disenchanted with Obama's broken
promises. The American middle class is deserting him in droves.
According to Gallup, Obama is losing ground among people earning
between $24,000 and $60,000 per year (currently at 50 percent approval
-- even lower at higher income levels); college graduates (48 percent
approval); political independents (43 percent approval); older
Americans, especially senior citizens (40 percent approval); and married
couples (40 percent approval). These are the bedrock middle-class
demographics, and represent people who increasingly recognize the
existential threat Obama poses to their pocketbooks and to American core
Among people who attend church weekly, Obama's support
has dropped from a high of 60 percent in January 2009 to 41 percent, and
affinity for Obama has fallen in double digits among religious
denominations across the board. An exception is the
"None/Atheist/Agnostic" category, in which Obama enjoys 67 percent
support. He is also highly supported by those with graduate
degrees, young people, single people, poor people and blacks.
Perhaps Obama's defenders believe, as many liberals do, that the United
States is a fundamentally racist nation. As Obama said during the
2008 campaign trail, "It's not surprising then that they get bitter,
they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like
them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to
explain their frustrations." This contemptuous assessment of the
American middle class accurately reflects the liberal worldview.
When they say "red state," they mean "redneck."
Race plays a
much stronger role in the liberal mindset than for most of America.
Obama and many liberals of his generation grew up being taught that
America is at root a deeply flawed country, and it is their mission to
"fix" it. Those pushing the "racism" argument to explain the
strong opposition to Obama's policies do so because they can't escape
looking at issues through a racial prism. As America has become
post-racial, they are intellectually and emotionally stuck in the 1960s.
So they recycle images half-a-century old and wait, forlornly, for a
random lynching to justify their worldview.
There is much to
dislike about Obama's America: high unemployment, monstrous record debt,
economic sluggishness, a terrible health care law, higher taxes, a
rigged census, fast-tracking illegal aliens to the franchise, growing
government at home and increasing weakness abroad. It is not
mean-spirited racism to take a stand against the daily destruction of
the American dream; it is simple common sense.
A Radical Transfer Of Power
Aaron Klein says Obama's reported pick to run
Medicare and Medicaid, Donald Berwick, has argued for a "radical
transfer of power" in the health industry and claimed patients' quality
of care in the U.S. medical system is currently measured by the "color
of their skin."
The Financial Times and other news organizations
yesterday quoted an administration official stating Obama intends to
nominate Berwick to take the helm of the largest medical payer in the
nation -- the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
news emerged as the White House announced it had sidestepped Senate
confirmations by appointing 15 nominees to administration positions,
including a controversial top lawyer for two U.S. labor unions.
Berwick, president and CEO of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement,
has been widely recognized as one of the most sought-after experts on
health-care quality. In 2005, Modern Healthcare, a leading industry
publication, named Berwick the third most powerful person in American
The blog points out Berwick noted, "There's a myth
that American healthcare is the best in the world."
he continued. "It's not even close."
"It's thought to be the
best because we have the most health care," Berwick stated. However, he
said, "40 percent of the care that Americans actually need is not
received. ... Cost is the barrier.
"Here is a question I often
ask my students," added Berwick. "When you meet a new patient, what is
the one test that you could do that would tell you how long that patient
is likely to live?
"Typically, students answer: 'Ask them if
they smoke,' or 'Test their blood sugar.'
"No," Berwick said.
"Just look at the color of their skin."

they are losing, they play the race card, but it's all over the web

Liberal Apartheid Shuns Black Tea Partiers
Flopping Aces says that the real racism is
being directed at black conservatives.
When Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN) went
on radio recently calling the Tea Partiers a "clone of George
Wallace" comparing them to the Ku Klux Klan without the "robes and
hoods," he was actually describing the Democrat practice of
intimidating, even lynching black conservatives who dare to speak out

that Tea Partiers shouted the "n" word at black Congressman before the
vote on health care, these same people were silent when Condoleezza

called every racial epithet in the book and more.
So, when the lovers of tolerance and diversity started calling the

tells us a lot about where Obama stands politically and the degree to
which he has frittered away the promise of his candidacy:
The Democratic National Committee this
morning released this clip of the president rallying the troops, if
rather coolly, for 2010. Obama’s express goal: "reconnecting" with
the voters who voted for the first time in 2008, but who may not
plan to vote in the lower-profile Congressional elections this year.
Obama speaks with unusual demographic frankness about his
coalition in his appeal to "young people, African-Americans,
Latinos, and women who powered our victory in 2008 [to] stand
together once again."
Several things are noteworthy. First, so much
for the post-racial presidency. We are back to naked pleas for
racial solidarity. This comes from a man who told us that there
were no Blue States or Red States, and that we should stop carving up
the electorate into ethnic and racial groups. It was moving and
appropriate and now it’s inoperative.
Second, this also suggests
that just about everyone else in the electorate is a lost cause --
whites, men, independents, and older voters. The Obama coalition
has fractured -- a little later than Hillary Clinton predicted, but it
has. It seems he is reduced to the core left, not a recipe for
successful governance or re-election.
And finally, the Democrats
are in big, big trouble if they are banking on casual voters, especially
young people, to turn out in large numbers in a midterm election.
I’ll go out on a limb (I really don’t have to, because you can look at
the turnout in New Jersey and Virginia) -- the electorate in 2010 is not
going to resemble the 2008 electorate. It will be older and more
conservative. In other words, the Democrats are throwing a Hail
And when Obama refers
to women, he's not referring to conservative and independent women, but
harridans of the left. Beyond that, Obama's call for support
is racist, sexist and ageist.
Is Obama Fomenting A Race War?
Jeffrey T. Kuhner says Obama is inciting racial
division. He rightly fears that the Democrats will suffer huge
losses in November's midterm congressional elections. Republicans
are within reach of retaking control of the House of Representatives.
Even the Senate may be in play. His party's grip on power is
threatened -- and with it, Obama's radical socialist agenda.
Fear breeds desperation. Hence, Obama is resorting to the worst
kind of demagoguery: playing the race card. In a
Democrats, Obama embraced identity politics; black, Hispanic and female
voters are to be courted at the expense of white middle-class America.

2008, stand together once again," he said.
ignored the large chunk of white voters -- suburbanites, latte-sipping
professionals, environmentalists, labor union members -- who voted for
him in huge numbers. For Obama in the 2010 election, whites no
longer matter -- especially white Christian males.
memory, no president has so deliberately and publicly sought to pit
racial and gender groups against each other. Obama is not simply
the titular head of a party or the leader of government. He is the
head of state and embodies the collective will of the American people.
He is the president of all Americans -- not just certain segments of his
electoral coalition. Obama's rhetoric is reckless. It is
fostering civil strife and racial animosity.
Imagine the media
uproar had President George W. Bush, for example, in 2006 called for
"whites, Southerners, Christians and veterans" to vote for the
Republican Party. Mr. Bush would have been excoriated (rightly)
for racist and sectarian pandering.
Obama is fracturing America.
He is calling on the primacy of race and gender in order to perpetuate
his national socialist revolution. He is championing a revanchist
tribalism -- the politics of grievance and racial victimology that
undermines our common national identity. Just like his old pastor,
the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama is an anti-American, virulent
Instead of seeing Americans, he classifies people
according to their race and gender. Modern liberal identity
politics is rooted in fascist doctrine. The most influential
philosopher of the 20th century was Martin Heidegger. His 1927
classic work, "Being and Time," is widely acknowledged as profoundly
influencing Western thought -- especially the academic left and its
embrace of postmodernism. It's the very culture from which Obama
-- by his own admission -- comes.
The Washington Times
says Obama has been denouncing Republicans who purportedly
"exploited for political purposes" the issue of illegal immigration.
He also has denigrated Arizona's new illegal-alien law for threatening
"to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans."
All this overheated rhetoric exposes Obama as the one who is cynically
manipulating racial tensions for political purposes.
Wednesday address in Ottumwa, Iowa, showed how he is fanning the flames
of ethnic discord. "This law that just passed in Arizona ... you
can try to make it really tough on people who look like they 'might be
illegal immigrants,' " Obama thundered. "One of the things that
the law says is local officials are allowed to ask somebody who they
have a suspicion might be an illegal immigrant for their papers.
But you can imagine, if you are a Hispanic American in Arizona -- your
great-grandparents may have been there before Arizona was even a state.
But now, suddenly, if you don't have your papers and you took your kid
out to get ice cream, you're going to be harassed."
claims are as dangerous as they are dishonest. People won't "be
harassed" when taking their children out for ice cream because of what
they "look like." The law specifically bans picking up someone
just for being Hispanic or originally from another country.
Instead, anyone arrested for a crime must have his immigration status
determined before being released. It thus is not only Hispanics
who will be required to provide evidence of citizenship, but everyone --
whites, blacks and Asians included -- who have done something wrong.
Police can't simply "ask somebody who they have a suspicion might be
an illegal immigrant for their papers." Two conditions have to be
met. First, police must have "lawful contact," meaning officers
must already have detained an individual for violating some other law.
Even then, authorities must have "reasonable suspicion" that someone is
an illegal alien. This is a standard from the 1960s that police
already deal with every day. In a border state such as Arizona,
with half a million illegals, the vast majority of undocumented
immigrants are going to be Hispanic, but the reasonableness standard
used by Arizona specifically requires circumstances aside from race or
All the hyperbole about "papers" undermines the
difficult work of Arizona police by comparing the thin blue line to
communist East German border guards during the Cold War. The truth
is, the new Arizona law doesn't even require anyone to carry an ID; it
simply stipulates that "a reasonable attempt shall be made, when
practicable, to determine the immigration status of the person."
Obama is playing with fire by misleading the nation to stir up
racial tensions. He's a lawyer who knows what terms such as
"lawful contact" and "reasonable suspicion" really mean. If blood
is shed over this imbroglio, it will be on Obama's hands.

OBAMA: Not in the short term. We're moving out of a period
of American preeminence on the world economic stage. Global
competition means increasing economic uncertainty for the majority of

country find it convenient to define these problems in racial terms --

and the Latinos there have been quite public with their intent to drive
blacks out. Peacefully by breeding, violent if necessary.
In South Central Los Angeles, only one of
the many areas and regions (Washington Times reporter Steve) Miller
surveyed, the predominant feeling among those few blacks who remain
in the neighborhood is that "They took our homes and our schools,"
as one black resident complained. "They," of course are the
Hispanics who have largely displaced the blacks in the area that was
the center of the 1992 "Rodney King" riots.
But it’s not just
South Central that’s a war zone as a result of mass immigration.
The war zone seems to extend all over the country, especially where
blacks and Hispanics confront each other.
David Cortez, a
22-year-old immigrant who spent two years in jail for shooting a
black, told Mr. Miller, "Just give us three or four years, and we’ll
take over. There will be more of us." Blacks at least,
if not the Open Borders lobby, know he’s on to something.
for blacks, they see no reason to welcome a population that takes
their jobs for lower wages and competes with them for political
favors from largely white politicians. "Why should we be in

As I’ve been arguing for years, this is what happens when
blacks blindly give their support to party that has to be reminded every
two years not to take it for granted. Obama Democrats, too, believe
they have the black vote locked and now can devote the rest of their
time using the usual race-baiting tactics aimed at illegal Latinos.

Police To Release Review Of Gates Arrest
The Daily Caller
reports police just outside Boston are expected to release results
of an independent review of last year’s arrest of black Harvard
University scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. by a white sergeant.
Commissioner Robert Haas and review panel Chairman Chuck Wexler have
scheduled a Wednesday news conference to discuss the report’s
conclusions and recommendations. The report was compiled by a
12-member panel put together in September.
Cambridge Sgt. James
Crowley arrested Gates on a disorderly conduct charge at his home July
16 while investigating a possible burglary. Gates alleged he was a
victim of racial profiling, and the charge was dropped.
The incident sparked a national debate on race relations when Obama
jumped to the
false conclusion that, "police acted stupidly." Barack Obama
invited both men to the White House for a
photo op over beers.
Kill The Crakkas
The Washington Times
says the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People
put forward a resolution yesterday formally accusing the Tea Party
movement of racism. That's ironic coming from an organization
whose mission is to promote the fortunes of one particular racial group.
Post-racial America has yet to arrive for many black leaders.
Obama has shown little interest in leading the national dialogue on race
he once proposed, and civil rights groups are unwilling or unable to
reach beyond their usual tired rhetoric. Saying the Tea Party
movement contains "racist elements that are a threat to democracy" is a
shameful slap at the millions of Americans untainted by bigotry who
oppose Obama's radical leftist policies regardless of his color.
The Rev. C.L. Bryant, a black Tea Party activist who used to be an NAACP
chapter president in Texas, said charges of racism are lies intended to
further a liberal political agenda. ABC News quoted him as saying
the NAACP wants to "create a climate where they can say that those on
the right are in fact racist and those on the left are their saviors.
This is very much what the liberal agenda is about." Blacks who
show any signs of independent thinking do so at their peril. In
August, Kenneth Gladney, a black Tea Partier from Missouri, was severely
beaten by two thugs from the Service Employees International Union.
The NAACP started a campaign to defend Mr. Gladney's assailants, saying
the victim was an "Uncle Tom" who was "not black enough" to protect.
Last week, the Project 21 black leadership network asked Obama for
the second time to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the
Justice Department's failure to prosecute New Black Panther Party
members for blatant, race-based voter intimidation in Philadelphia in
2008. Project 21 Chairman Mychal Massie wrote that "the problem
has festered to a point where perceptions of racial bias within your
Justice Department cannot be ignored." The perceptions were
reinforced July 6 when former Justice Department official J. Christian
Adams, who resigned to protest the handling of the case, testified to
the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights that Justice Department attorneys in
the Civil Rights Division were instructed to ignore cases that involved
black defendants and white victims. Justice apparently is not
Black Panther Minister King Samir Shabazz, otherwise
known as Maurice Heath, was one of the people engaging in voter
intimidation. He also was featured in a January 2009 video
proclaiming to a black audience, "You want freedom? You're gonna
have to kill some crackers! You're gonna have to kill some of
their babies!" Mr. Shabazz added, "I hate white people -- all of
them! Every last iota of a cracker, I hate 'em." The
Washington Times' Kerry Picket reported last summer on Jerry Jackson,
another accused Black Panther and an elected member of Philadelphia's
14th Ward Democratic Party committee. His interests, according to
his MySpace page, are: "BLACK POWER, BLACK LOVE, BLACK UNITY, BLACK
MINDS, KILLIN CRAKKKAS." These are the kind of violent black
extremists that Attorney General Eric Holder's Justice Department is
No such comparable hateful language has come out of the
Tea Party movement. The NAACP's tired racial rhetoric is simply
the product of a time long gone. It has been almost half a century
since the Civil Rights Act was passed. The United States elected a
black president. American society has closed the racial divide.
However, those who benefit politically from keeping the racial wound
fresh continue to wave the bloody shirt and smear those who disagree
with their hard-left political agenda. It will take more than a
beer summit to heal the racial wounds these black leaders are inflicting
on the country.
On Being Labeled A Racist
Politico says a clear pattern of behavior has
emerged over the last 16 months. According to liberals, if you
disagree with their thinking, and if you disagree with the Obama
administration, you are not only wrong, you are a "racist."
latest strike by the left comes from the NAACP, which has resolved that
the tea party movement is inherently "racist." At its most simple,
this is a direct attack on the First Amendment rights of millions of
The NAACP has long history of liberalism and racism.
If you are a conservative -- including a conservative
African-American -- there is no room for you at the NAACP. If you
have opinions that differ from the NAACP and the liberal establishment,
and if you are African-American, you are an "Uncle Tom," a "negro," "not
black enough" and "against our people."
In other words, the
NAACP fancies itself the thought police for millions of black Americans.
Disagree with them and you will be ostracized and attacked. You
will be subjected to public humiliation and racist commentary from NAACP
leadership. The message is clear: Tow the line or pay the price.
But the NAACP does not stand alone in this regard. The
left has a long history of using the race card. It has been pulled
on people across the political spectrum.
President Bill Clinton
was smeared as a racist by the Obama campaign when Hillary Clinton was
running for president. It seems that anyone who disagrees with the
far left, socialist policies of Barack Obama and the current
administration is subject to the heavy hand of the race card.
This card is generally played when all else has failed. It was
inevitable that it would eventually be used aggressively against the tea

Hot Air is
commenting on ABC News Senior White House Correspondent Jake
Tapper's report that Obama gave an interview yesterday to the South
African Broadcasting Corporation. In it, Obama expressed his
distaste for al Qaeda’s inhumane practices, which he further vilified as
So finally Obama has gotten around to taking al Qaeda
to task for its long history of anti-semitism and its undisguised
loathing for the Jewish people, eh?
Well, no actually. It
wasn’t the terrorists’ mistreatment of the "Zionist entity" that Obama
was all wee-weed up about. It was their recent bombing of
civilians in Uganda and some of the comments that al Shabaab, the al
Qaeda wannabe, made.
"What you’ve seen in some of the statements
that have been made by these terrorist organizations is that they do
not regard African life as valuable in and of itself. They see
it as a potential place where you can carry out ideological battles
that kill innocents without regard to long-term consequences for
their short-term tactical gains."
No one disputes that these bombings were savage and
inhumane acts. Yet, the systematic lobbing of bombs into Israel by
the terrorist organization Hamas has been a daily occurrence during
Obama's occupation of the Oval Office, but I defy any reader to find a
single comment Obama has made condemning these equally savage and
Hamas’s sole raison d’être is to "wipe Israel
off the map." This mission is drummed into the skull of children
of Hamas members beginning in kindergarten, where the tykes are shown
puppet shows of soldiers murdering Jewish "infidels." Yet, neither
these indisputable facts nor the daily self-avowed acts of aggression
against Israel has elicited a peep from Obama, never mind claims of
racism. In fact, Obama has taken precisely the opposite tack,
legitimizing Hamas as a "political entity" as recently as June 20 of
To Obama, everything is racist --
except the New Black Panthers.
Obama's Dumb Race Card Play Will Be His
Dick Morris and Eileen McGann say that the very
basis of Barack Obama’s entire political career has been the assertion
that he is one of the first examples of a post-racial politician.
He consciously eschewed the notion that his presidency was notable for
the triumph of a black politician and focused, instead, on what it said
about the irrelevance of race to the political process. When the
Clintons sought to inject race into the election by harping on the
polarization of black support for Obama and likening his triumph in the
South Carolina primary to that of Jesse Jackson, the Obama supporters
cried foul and accused the former first couple of injecting race into
Now, Obama is letting his supporters strip away his
image of a post-racial president by their increasingly racial rhetoric
and his support for radical black activists.
Eric Holder’s refusal to prosecute the Black Panthers so obviously
guilty of racial intimidation at the Philadelphia polling places in 2008
is of a piece with the NAACP’s loud denunciation of the Tea Party
movement as racists, likening it to the White Citizens Councils of the
segregationist past. And the Obama Administration’s decision to
sue to overturn the Arizona immigration law -- despite the fact that
Americans approve of the statute, and disapprove of the lawsuit to void
it, by 59-28 -- is an attempt to foundation his appeal to Latino voters
in racial terms.
In a bid to increase enthusiasm and, therefore,
turnout among minority voters, Barack Obama is sacrificing his white
support and his non-racial image.
Already, the results of this
disastrous strategy are apparent. The latest Fox News/Opinion
Dynamics survey shows that his job approval among Democrats has fallen
from 84% two weeks ago to a mere 76% today. This fall has led to a
drop in his overall approval from 47% at the end of June to 43% in the
middle of July.
But the political implications of Obama’s lurch
to the left and his efforts to polarize his Administration racially are
only part of the problem. Obama, as president of the United
States, is increasingly taking sides in the old racial debates,
reigniting them and lending new fuel to their flames. He is no
more the president of all the people, but is retreating into the racial
cocoon of a supportive minority vote.

Obama Calls African-Americans A "Mongrel
Prison Planet is
reporting that Obama waded into the national race debate in an
unlikely setting and with an unusual choice of words: telling daytime

Obama appeared on ABC’s morning talk show "The View" Thursday, where
he talked about the forced resignation of Agriculture Department
official Shirley Sherrod, his experience with race and his roots.

D.C.’s Race Quota Job Boom
Tait Trussell says, while millions of jobless
Americans struggle in the rough-edged recession, Washington employment
is booming, driven partly by new racial and gender quotas.
swollen federal government under Obama has guaranteed a robust job
market for regulators, policy wonks, contractors, Washington elitists,
and plenty of under-qualified job-holders. Helping Washington’s
job boom is a provision of the new financial regulation law requiring
race and gender employment ratios in private financial institutions that
do business with the government. A new diversity overseer, with
staff, will take office in each of the many federal financial regulatory
agencies, including new ones created by the new law. At least 20
"Offices of Minority and Women Inclusion" will be thrust into agencies
and offices ranging from the Securities and Exchange Commission to the
12 regional banks of the Federal Reserve System. They will be
among the 264,000 government regulators (as calculated by the U.S.
Chamber of Commerce).
The federal government now has moved "from
outlawing discrimination to setting up a system of quotas," wrote Diana
Furchtgott-Roth in RealClearMarkets. She is an adjunct fellow at
the Manhattan Institute. The inclusion rule would apply "not just
to the agency’s workforce but also to the workforce of its contractors
and subcontractors. The mission of this troupe of monitors is to
assure "fair inclusion," a definition as wide open as the mouth of the
Grand Canyon. Governmental Inclusion entities also would include
the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Housing Finance
Agency, the National Credit Union Administration, Controller of the
Currency, and the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The
result, says Ms. Furchtgott-Roth: "redundant hiring and wasteful
expansion of payroll overhead."
The law also dictated that
recruiting for the Offices of Minority and Women Inclusion should be at
historically black colleges and universities, Hispanic-serving
institutions and women’s colleges, at job fairs in urban communities,
and at inter-city high schools with mainly minority pupils.
Recruiting ads are to be placed in newspapers and magazines oriented
toward minorities and women, Fox News radio detailed.

claims that under Obama we shall all become slaves on the government’s
The conservative activist and former diplomat, said
Barack Obama and liberals in Congress are promoting a dependence on
government that mirrors slavery.
Keyes appeared with more than a
dozen other black conservative leaders at a gathering in Washington to
condemn accusations by the NAACP that the Tea Party movement has a
racist faction. Keyes said real racism occurs when race is
connected to ideology -- as was the case, he said, when Barack Obama was
campaigning for president.
"The notion that you owe some
allegiance or vote to an individual simply because of the color of their
skin" is racist, Keyes said. He said such a notion was "constantly
pushed at me by the American media" during the Obama campaign, when
black Americans were expected to "feel proud" of Obama.
should I feel proud of someone who wants to destroy the unalienable
rights of unborn children?" Keyes said Wednesday during the event
at the National Press Club. "Why should I be proud of someone who,
in fact, wants to return this entire country to the condition in which
my ancestors sadly found themselves?"
Keyes compared the
institution of slavery with liberalism and socialism.
it mean to be a slave?" Keyes asked. "It meant that you
actually had guaranteed shelter, guaranteed clothing. Your master
guaranteed your food, your clothing, your shelter and a job.
"Sounds interesting, doesn’t it?" he said. "That’s exactly what
the Obama faction and the leftists and the socialists and the so-called
'liberals' want to pretend is what all Americans should aspire to."
Keyes said he grew up wrestling with the heritage of slavery and
understanding its true meaning. As a result, he said, "I have seen
through that phony promise of socialism, that government-dominated
largesse. It simply means that we shall all become slaves on the
Keyes said Tea Party activists advocate
government by consent of the people and that black liberals are using
the "moral capital" earned by those who fought for civil rights as a
"That moral capital is now being wielded as an
instrument of political war by those who are seeking to pretend that
somehow or other there is an ideological definition of what it means to
be a black American. I don’t know whether people realize how
racist that assumption is."
Keyes added: "The notion that somehow
or another -- the fact that you take a different point of view about
political issues, about economic approaches, about fundamental issues of
human character and decency; that that somehow means that you’re a
traitor to your race is patently racist."
Fox News Is Not Lying, The Left Is Just
says David Letterman is a liberal kind of guy, and like many on the
left, old Dave is kind of frustrated these days. A new Gallup poll
has Obama's job approval rating at just 41 percent, with 53 percent
disapproving. Those are the lowest numbers Gallup has posted since
Obama was inaugurated more than a year and a half ago.
is seeking answers to Obama's diminishing popularity, and that kind of
conversation usually involves the Fox News Channel, which is considered
by the left to be all anti-Obama, all the time. Since I work at
FNC, I dispute that perception, but there is no doubt that Fox News is
the most skeptical TV news organization when it comes to analyzing
Consider this: If Obama was being worked over the way
President Bush was by the establishment media, his job approval rating
would probably be in the 20 percent range. Remember the brutal
media beating Bush took? Today, the mainstream press is largely
positive on Obama, even as most Americans are having doubts about him.
But let's get back to Letterman. Speaking with far-left
MSNBC News commentator Rachel Maddow on his program, Dave listened as
she put forth the preposterous theory that Fox News wants to frighten
white Americans by reporting negatively about black Americans.
"Scaring white people is good politics on
the conservative side of the spectrum, and it always has been. The
idea is that you sort of rile up the white base to be afraid of an
other, to be afraid of scary immigrants or scary black people..."
In the past, paranoid, dishonest rants like that
would have been dismissed as fringe speak, but not anymore.
Without a shred of evidence, a guest on Letterman's "Late Show" (which
by the way gets trounced in the ratings by FNC every night) defines an
entire news organization as a racist enterprise. And Letterman
goes along with the program, adding:
"These people are continuing to fan this
flame and ... that is cancer."
The only people Fox News is scaring
are far-left loons who see their shining city on the hill on fire.
For 18 months, the United States has been governed from the left, and
things are not going well. I'm sorry if this analysis frightens
some folks, but when you spend a half-trillion dollars trying to
stimulate the economy and you create just 600,000 jobs, well, people are
going to notice (I thought we've
lost jobs -- I'm checking).
When the war in
Afghanistan turns chaotic, Americans are not going to be pleased.
When the nation's debt is increased by more than a trillion dollars a
year because of record spending, folks are going to get a bit nervous.
So, in order to counter those realities, the far left must divert
attention from them. Thus, the scary black people deal.
reply, here's a Top 1 list for Letterman and his uber-liberal guest: The
American people don't need to be "riled" up by phony race baiting.
They are already riled up by reality, and the polls prove it.
Your Race Card Has Been Declined

Sincerely, The American People
No president in history came to
office with more political capital than Barack Obama. He
squandered it like a lottery winner within a few months. If
liberals had any sense of irony, they would appreciate the inanity of
braying about racism right after America elected a black president.
Obama’s entire life has been devoted to fomenting racial animus.
Miguel A. Guanipa
says Obama apparently saw nothing wrong with publicly charging all
Latinos and blacks with the solemn duty to come out in support of his
congressional colleagues seeking reelection. During midterm
elections he appeared not too concerned that such brazenly racist
summonses are not only unbecoming of the office he holds, but very
inappropriate. And why should he? The sword of today's
tolerance movement cuts only one way, and that is against conservatives
or perceived deserters of the liberal cause. If you doubt that,
just ask Juan Williams, formerly of NPR.
Unfortunately, this has
always been the norm for Obama.
I am Hispanic, as you may have
been able to tell by the peculiar way in which I despoil my adjectives.
But I would not vote for Obama if he had been born and raised in the
heart of Venezuela. I would have voted for him if he believed in
limited government intervention in the lives of citizens, the defense of
the unborn, and the self-correcting tendency of a capitalism-based
economy. In other words, if he shared the same values as I do --
or at least some. That is the point of choosing a representative
Suffice it to say that in my mind, Obama's blackness
in no way diminishes the fact that he stands diametrically opposed to
these principles. And for Obama to suggest that it is my duty to
vote for any candidate, including him, simply because of the color of
his skin is not only the height of arrogance, but a supreme insult to my
This vulgar clarion call to people of color to
support his party's candidates as they supported him in the last
presidential election also shows a few other things about the way Obama,
and many of his democratic colleagues, really think.
suggests that a candidate who is not black or Hispanic would endorse
policies that run contrary to the interests of people of color.
This means, conversely, that he would work for the benefit only of
people who share his genetically transmitted physical traits, namely
race. And it also suggests that without the support from people of
his own race, a black or Hispanic candidate would have no chance of
being elected. These are the assumptions Obama makes when he calls
the opposition "enemies" and urges blacks and Hispanics to ignore the
record and simply cast their votes based on the color of the candidate's
skin. And if you thought our current commander in chief would
never stoop that low, you thought wrong.
But the cold, hard truth
is that Obama, the great "Uniter," is well aware of the fact that the
overriding criteria many African-American voters employ when casting a
vote are the candidate's skin color first and his or her real
qualifications second. Ah, but who would dare say it out loud and
risk being labeled a racist, instead of a good observer of political
trends, which can be easily confirmed by simply looking at the
overwhelming statistical data on voter behavior? Indeed, Obama
himself is a product of this verifiable trend.
Thus, this appeal
to his supporters also serves as an unintended indictment of those who
actually do vote in a manner that betrays an unwillingness to take their
civic duty seriously, not to mention a blissful ignorance of what is
truly at stake when the wrong leader is given the reins of power, albeit
But what is even worse, it reveals that Obama
thinks blacks and Hispanics can be very easily manipulated.
is why I can't help but think that Obama interprets the fact that I am
Hispanic to also mean that I am naïve, because that sure is what he
sounds like when he implies that I am obligated, strictly by virtue of
my race, to vote for him. Consequently, I find it very strange
that it is always the other side that gets accused of racism.
Consider for a moment what would happen if the following scenario became
a reality. Picture Sarah Palin or Mitt Romney, for example,
speaking to an audience of supporters and uttering the following words:
"I want all of you white folk who voted for me in the last election to
come out in force on voting day and support my colleagues.
Remember that all those other folk are counting on you staying home on
Election Day. You need to go out and show our enemies that we are
going to punish them, and that we reward our friends."
knows that even in an alternate universe where there are no liberals,
Mrs. Palin would never say anything like that. She is a little
smarter than people think -- and in most cases, a lot smarter. But
assuming that she would, for how many weeks do you think that story
would grace the front pages of virtually every single major media outlet
in the country? And how long before either politician's career is
over, due to a poor choice of words?
And yet Obama continues to
operate in this manner with impunity. The only difference is the
demographic groups he has targeted.
So it seems to me that Obama
doesn't have just one race card to play; apparently he owns the entire

of their race.

skin tone like this would be a good idea? This has got to be

some splainin' to do.

himself. he wrote
in "Dreams...," -- "I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of
twelve or thirteen, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was
ingratiating myself to whites."
that? "...to whites."
Obama wanted a race to belong to,
a team whose accomplishments would reflect well upon him. Of course, it
was unthinkable in his liberal white family to take pride in the
achievements of his mother’s race, so Obama gloried in being part of his
absent father’s race.
early teens onward, Obama desperately wants to be black. In "Dreams,"
he writes, "I was trying to raise myself to be a black man in America,
and beyond the given of my appearance, no one around me seemed to know
exactly what that meant." Honolulu’s paucity of African-Americans means
he has to learn to be black from the media: "TV, movies, the radio;
those were places to start. Pop culture was color-coded, after all, an
arcade of images from which you could cop a walk, a talk, a step, a

Obama's Slave Ship
Robin of Berkeley says: When I was young
and living in Manhattan, I saw an Off-Off-Broadway play called Slave
Ship. It was an experience I'll never forget.
to me, the performance was conducted in total darkness. The
audience was subjected for one very long hour to the harrowing sounds of
slavery. There were blood-curdling screams, whippings, and more.
Given that we were trapped in pitch blackness, the audience was
held captive like the slaves, compelled to experience the same terror,
helplessness, and despair. This was undoubtedly the intention of
Memories of that ghastly night at the theater
sauntered back into my mind's eye upon hearing some of Obama's recent
utterances. To an audience of blacks, he invokes the language of
slavery, fashioning himself an abolitionist freeing them from bondage.
Using racially charged language, Obama relegates Republicans to
the back of the bus. In a speech to Latinos, he directs the
audience to align with him against the "enemy." But Obama doesn't
mean the Mexican Cartel, who are holding sections of Mexico and the
United States hostage. He's referring to conservatives.
Recent photos of Obama have
been alarming; they depict a man boiling over with rage. Have we
ever witnessed a U.S. president so pugnacious, so incensed and inflamed
by his own people?
But to Obama, we are not his people; this is
everything you need to know about Barack Obama in a nutshell.
Although Obama was marketed as the post-racial, biracial uniter, this is
not the man behind the mask.
And the world according to Obama
does not resemble the place in which most of us live. His is a
threatening, foreboding universe. It has always been this way and
will always be, regardless of the power he amasses. As he writes
in Dreams from My Father, "The world was violent, I was learning,
unpredictable and often cruel."
This is the world Obama was
thrust into, born to a teenage white mother and a Kenyan father.
The young child lived with his parents (maybe), and then his mother, and
next was carted off to a foreign land, Indonesia, with a new daddy.
In Indonesia, Obama began to cultivate his lifelong identity as the
outsider. There he was a black/white boy in a Muslim country.
His mother reinforced and celebrated their misfit status. She
scoffed at socializing with other Americans because, "[t]hey are not my
people." (If they weren't her people, then who were?)

piece of luggage. She spirited him off to Indonesia to start a new
life there. After her marriage dissolved, she returned to the U.S.

When Stanley Ann made plans to haul
him back to Indonesia, Barry refused and moved in with his grandparents
in Hawaii, where there was no love lost. He has described them as
"strangers," and his grandma as belonging to "typical white people."

jokes in front of the discomforted boy. The small, vulnerable
child just didn't exist.
When a child grows up with no strong
arms to protect him and no sense of home, he can evolve in several
different ways. He may become a dependent person who clings to
others like a life raft.
Or he can go another way entirely and
become the consummate loner. He will depend only upon himself;
it's him against the world.

Obama Spiritual Advisor Throws Race Bomb
says "Reverend" Jim Wallis,
also known as Obama’s spiritual advisor, goes on air and makes several
drastic and dreadful remarks. None too surprising as most people
surrounding Obama love to constantly drag race into the equation and
blame bigotry and racism for any and all political disagreements.
He says, "FOX News has been the assassin of Obama’s religion…"
He goes on in an idiotic and ignorant manner to attempt and rationalize
that statement. And then he says, "And to be blunt, there wouldn’t
be a Tea Party if there wasn’t a black man in the White House."
No, Mr. Wallis, there would be no Tea Party if there wasn’t a radical
Socialist in the White House. Let’s be clear on that.
also worth mentioned that Jim Wallis has accepted money from George
Soros for his Sojournes magazine and "Christian ministry" located in DC.

that's fine. If he was Caucasian, that's fine. If he was a woman, or
handicapped, or old, or young, that's fine too.
That said, I do
not support that much of his agenda. It is not because of race but
because how I want the country to move and how it should be done. Now
that I said that, here is the main part of the article:
In a new
book, Barack Obama is quoted as having stated that race is a "key
component" both in the Tea Party's rise and conservative opposition as a
"Americans, since the victories of the civil rights movement, I
think, have broadly come to accept the notion that everybody has to be
treated equally; everybody has to be treated fairly."
But as soon
as one might believe that the conversation is run of the mill, Obama
begins veering into different regions. For example, Walsh writes
In May 2010, he told guests at a private White
House dinner that race was probably a key component in the rising
opposition to his presidency from conservatives, especially right-wing
activists in the anti-incumbent "Tea Party" movement that was then
surging across the country.
And just as bad:
suggested that when Tea Party activists said they wanted to "take back"
their country, their real motivation was to stir up anger and anxiety at
having a black president, and Obama didn't dispute the idea. He agreed
that there was a "subterranean agenda" in the anti-Obama movement -- a
racially biased one -- that was unfortunate.
Sigh! What can I
say? Can I say that Tea Partiers are simply upset that their government
is not only spending money faster than it can print it, but that they
fear the government's growth? Can I say that, if you believe in limited
government and are against abortion, that you are not automatically a
That Obama could believe such things truly shows how out
of touch he is. It makes me wonder what else he doesn't understand.
Obama has always been obsessed
by race. It defines who he is. Just click the link in the
right column, and browse through a few of his written and spoken quotes.
Running On The "Race" Track
says, I can tell that I must be getting old from all the people
telling me how young I look. At fifty-two I may look like
forty-seven but I certainly don't look like twenty-seven. The
compliment does not help me very much, other than to reassure me that
I'm wearing my fifty-two-ness lightly. But their need to say it
serves as an ominous reminder of the clock ticking merrily away towards
This in a way disturbs me about Barack Obama more than
anything else. We hear so much about what a new breed of
politician he is that it drives home the reality of his dreary oldness.
Beneath the dashing façade, the insouciant wink, the casual wave, beats
the heart of the dreariest old political hack imaginable. He is a
card-carrying member of the cliché clique, the bromide brigade, the
platitude attitude and the banal cabal. Uggh!
point, his latest contribution to the national conversation, quoted in a
new book by Kenneth Walsh, Obama says that the TEA Party movement is
inspired by race, by a sense that minorities are getting all these
goodies from Washington. They are motivated, Obama believes, by "a
This is such a piece of hackery and
flackery, of puffery and guffery, of foolery and fakery. Politics
at its rankest masquerading as analysis at its frankest. There is
so much dirty laundry being aired here that I simply had to make a list.
Every trick in the old, old playbook is on display.
ZERO PROOF -- There is no evidence to support such a contention, nor is
any offered. The most powerful man in the country picks on a bunch
of little people who put their lives aside at great personal cost to
make a political statement and he accuses them of base motives without
2. WHY NOW? -- If the issue is that these
people feel shortchanged by all the government largesse to minorities,
this is hardly the time to organize. None of the new laws, like
ObamaCare or the wall Street reforms, are designed to help minorities in
particular. Believe me, if there was a stat showing that blacks
were more likely to be uninsured than whites, we would have heard it
repeated ad nauseam.
3. WHY NOT BELIEVE THEIR WORDS?
-- The TEA Party is a movement with very definite ideas, expressed in a
spate of books and articles. This is not a group of conspiracy
thinkers or Trekkies. They offer a straightforward "terranean"
explanation for their positions. These positions are certainly
defensible at the very least; nothing contrived or suspicious about
them. In fact, the TEA Party gave up the best shot at Republican
Senate seats in Nevada and Connecticut to be true to their ideology.
4. WHY IMPUTE AN EVIL IDEAL? -- It is one thing to
observe that people are abandoning ideals in favor of self-interest.
It is certainly arguable that TEA Party commitment to fiscal
conservatism is a case of liking their money better than they like the
wonderful improvements in society wrought by activist government.
But to say that they care more about an anti-minority evil ideology than
about their own pocketbook -- to skip selfishness as an easy motive and
choose malevolence instead -- is gratuitously offensive.
5. WHY NOT ASSUME NORMALCY? -- It would be very classy for Obama
to say he has no doubt the opponents of his legislation only want what's
best for the country. He understands their concerns about massive
shifts in lifestyle. He empathizes with their fears. He
realizes the pressures felt by ordinary citizens during tough economic
times. But he is confident they will look back later when things
are more settled and they will see it his way. Why treat them as
6. WHY NOT PRAISE THEM? -- It would be even
more classy to laud folks for getting involved and learning more about
the political process. Imagine if he made a surprise visit to a
TEA Party rally in Washington and asked to speak. Keep up the good
citizenship, he would say, but keep an open mind and promise me that if
things turn out well you will be receptive to change. His poll
numbers would jump ten points in five minutes, and he would lose
Instead, we get this garbage about the TEA Party being
prejudiced against coffee and trying to keep the leaves at the bottom of
What a shame! They offer hope and change, but what
we get is bad faith and ill will and mean spirit. When it comes to
subterranean agendas, all I see is Obama calling the kettle black.
Racism To Blame For Obama's Problems
James Rosen is reporting that House Assistant
Democratic Leader, Jim Clyburn, the highest-ranking African-American in
Congress, blamed most of Barack Obama's political problems on racism.
Clyburn, who's from South Carolina and is a close ally of Obama,
offered his views in response to a question about his re-election
prospects next year.
"I think they're improving every day,"
Clyburn said. "I think the president has been a good president, a
great commander in chief."
Clyburn, who met his wife at a 1960
court hearing after spending a night in jail for having engaged in a
civil rights protest in Orangeburg, S.C., then brought up Obama's race
as the first black president.
"You know, I'm 70 years old," he
said. "And I can tell you; people don't like to deal with it, but
the fact of the matter is, the president's problems are in large measure
because of the color of his skin."
Clyburn noted that he himself
got hate mail, racist phone calls and offensive faxes on a regular
basis. Asked how that relates to Obama, Clyburn retorted: "We have
the same skin color; that's how it relates to him."
described a recent racist image of Obama that received widespread news
"When he sees his face being put on a chimpanzee's
body; do you think he didn't see that?" Clyburn said. "And I
suspect they send the same faxes to his office they send to mine."
