• He Won’t Shut Up: Obama On Racism: It’s “Deeply Rooted In Our Society”

    In a matter of 14 seconds, President Obama grabbed his race-baiting sledgehammer and took his hardest swing. The despicable teaser clip above comes from a pre-tapped interview Obama did with Black Entertainment Television (BET). It’s reported that the interview will cover calls for criminal justice reform and the grand jury decisions in Ferguson, MO. and New York.

    The special titled, “BET News Presents: A Conversation with President Barack Obama,” shows Obama promising to do his part to help solve the racial unrest that erupted after the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, which caused riots and boycotts.

    “This isn’t going to be solved overnight,” Obama explains.

    And it will likely never be solved because of what Obama went on to say.

    “This is something that’s deeply rooted in our society, deeply rooted in our history,” Obama said in the special that airs December 8th, at 6 p.m.

    Racism is “deeply rooted in our society,” Obama says.

    That’s perhaps one of the most irresponsible things the president could say.

    It’s also illogical.

    If racism was “deeply rooted in society,” then how the hell did such a racist nation of (white) people elect a black guy their president–twice?

    White people hate blacks so much that they elected one president, two times? Is that what Obama expects us to believe?

    It’s no wonder why more than half the country believes race relations are worse under Obama.

    Eric Garner’s daughter, mother, and widow say his death wasn’t about race. So why is Obama fanning those dangerous flames?

    “But the two things that will allow us to solve it: Number one: Is the understanding that we have made progress and so it’s important to recognize that as painful as these instances are, we can’t equate what’s happening now with what was happening 50 years ago,” Obama added. “If you talk to your parents, grandparents, uncles, they’ll tell you that things are better.”

    BET says Obama’s interview will focus on his plan to investigate the Garner and Brown deaths and ways the country can be brought together in the wake of their deaths.

    My guess is that Obama and BET won’t have an honest discussion on black pathology; the chronic abandonment of black children by their fathers, the betrayal that causes so many youths to gravitate toward gang life instead of graduation. When you add the decades of political pandering and the now institutional dependency on welfare–a different devil than Jim Crow era terrorism–conditions are ripe for the calamity that we watch on the nightly news; the body bags, the funerals that occur in countless inner cities consumed by this culture of crime.

    Obama won’t dare talk about it

    That doesn’t dismiss racism. It exists. And of course it’s a factor. However, it’s not overwhelming and it’s not “deeply rooted.”

    Obama could speak to the underclass in this country. He could finally address those people who don’t have hope. I believe he won’t. I hope I’m wrong.
