Obama: Race Relations “May Get Worse”

Keith Koffler, White House Dossier, July 28, 2013

President Obama said that if economic prescriptions of the type he supports to increase economic growth and reduce “income inequality” are not adopted, then race relations in the United State may deteriorate further.

“If we don’t do anything, then growth will be slower than it should be. Unemployment will not go down as fast as it should. Income inequality will continue to rise,” Obama said in an interview published Sunday by the New York Times. “Racial tensions won’t get better; they may get worse, because people will feel as if they’ve got to compete with some other group to get scraps from a shrinking pot. If the economy is growing, everybody feels invested, ” he said.

The president in recent days has suggested he will back massive new spending outlays, including funding for vast programs like infrastructure projects and early childhood education.

    Groups? Think about that word, Mr President.

    “And would the white leaders of the class war ever hesitate if coloured outbreaks opened up a way for them?… It would make no difference if the voice of Moscow ceased to dictate. It has done its work, and the work goes forward by itself” (Oswald Spengler).

    • Romulus

      Great quote!!

      • David Ashton

        A great book.

        • Read “Unintended Consequences” by John Ross. ISBN 1-888118-04-0 or for paperback 1-888118-05-9.

          • David Ashton

            Thanks. Have checked the content and will get it. I am making a little collection of anti-PC novels.

  • Spartacus

    “…and early childhood education.”

    ———————————————————————————————————————

    You can start from the uterus if you want, you’re still not gonna teach blacks how to read and write English. There’s a reason you “people” never invented a written language in the first place…

    • David Ashton

      Frankly I didn’t have a problem with most of them from the Caribbean as an English teacher, though the girls were better than the boys (true of English whites in this area also). Race realists should be a bit more realistic, without selling out our own side. Blacks in general seem to have little interest in books, except the religious ones who “bash” the Bible.

  • Easyrhino1

    If Obama was really concerned about his black constituents he could easily close the southern border, start deportation proceedings en-masse of illegals and demand employers use E-Verify to confirm citizenship.

    • Erasmus

      Obongo doesn’t give a ßhit about his black constituents. As with all lefties, everything is about him. Other people are just stepping stones for him to get ahead.

      With a Kenyan village chieftain now in the White Hut, a country run like a Kenyan village…with widespread corruption and half-assed results…should be expected.

  • MekongDelta69

    Which is exactly part of NoBama’s Agenda.
    He’s been doing this all his life, and he revels in this…

    • Erasmus

      We are living in the age of the sociopath.

      I wish I could say that they were all on the left, but they’re not. Look at Rubio, McCain, Paul Ryan, Graham, all the Bushes if you need more proof.

  • Obama is right, but for the wrong reasons. Race relations are going to get worse as more people learn about things like the WOTC (Workforce Opportunity Tax Credit), a program that gives government tax credits to corporations for hiring certain individuals, and similar programs.

  • JohnEngelman

    Throughout the New Deal taxes on the rich increased. Unemployment decreased, except for a year after 1937 when Roosevelt cut government spending.

    • Triarius

      And the rich are taxed more now than ever. The top 2% pay more than 50% of the gov’t revenues. Your OWS marxism has no place here. Tax the rich more and they will move, just like the French are to Russia, amongst other places. The New Deal was a joke, Chinaman.

      • Ella

        I read the US rich were taxed like 80% in the 50’s and many did not leave the country. Why would I care if a group of loudmouth liberals are taxed 50% of their income to fix our pitiful infrastructure that we use daily? Or billionaire conservatives / libs want endless, cheap labour (mass immigration) for their businesses? The US govt no longer protects average Americans workers and just supports the elite interests. Give big tax credits if they create real jobs in USA!

        • Triarius

          Maybe I jumped the gun with the rich being currently taxed the most, but not by much. The fact is is that you are comparing a US that was 90+% white in the 1950s as compared to today. And even back then, with that percentage, the top 2 % still did not pay for 60% of the gov’t revenues. There was a much larger white middle class then, as opposed to now.

    • Nathanwartooth

      The federal government is already spending a trillion more than it takes in.

      It can literally spend to infinity without having to worry about anything but inflation. But even with the massive increase in government spending, why hasn’t unemployment gotten lower and wages higher?

      Throughout the New Deal how many people were working for the government? A lot less than are working for it now. But you seem to think that government jobs are the only way to save us. Since that’s the only thing that taxing the rich can do for jobs.

      Let’s get real here. You are onto a false correlation. The unemployment being so low and the middle class being prosperous for so long were due to two things. First, the protection of the White majority from an underclass that would destroy their property value and force them to have long commutes.

      The second is that the government actually protected US jobs. The idea of letting companies move to another country and ship their products back to the US without a tariff was unthinkable then. But it’s been common practice for 20 years and unemployment has gone up and wages down because of it.

      The “tax the rich” meme is getting old and tired. How about instead of taxing the rich more we get them to hire more US employees and pay them more? Isn’t that a much better strategy than just taking away their money to create useless government jobs?

      I know you’ll read this and not understand a word of it. This is for other readers, not you. I would never waste this many words on your horribly flawed logic.

      • Sick of it

        Very well said.

    • That tax money was spent on infrastructure improvements via the CCC. The government has been bending over backward to try to avoid spending on infrastructure, perhaps because too many of the “shovel-ready” jobs would go to white males.

      My candidates for high-priority infrastructure improvements would be: the levees in California’s Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, Kentucky’s Wolf Creek Dam, and the river locks on the Upper Mississippi. These aren’t going to get done, because the “right people” wouldn’t get the jobs.

      • MBlanc46

        “These aren’t going to get done, because the “right people” wouldn’t get the jobs.”

        They certainly won’t get done, but I don’t think that’s the reason. There is just no will either in the population at large or the political and economic elite to get them done. They’d rather invest in China than here in the US.

  • Keep Honkin I’m Reloading

    Translation…keep blaming YT

  • Puggg

    Why should race relations get better as Obama defines the concept?

    To me, “worse” is the direction we should want.

    • Erasmus

      To Obama an improvement in race relations means we do everything he says and we bow down and lick his boots while we do it.

  • Translated, this means more tax-funded “gibs me dat” or else the groids will riot.

    I’m getting sick of waiting. Bring it, boys.

  • Non Humans

    He must think that he’s pretty smart. The insane always think that they are reaching for clarity as they dive headfirst into madness. Does he honestly think that anyone with two brain cells (or more) to rub together buys this babble?
    .
    Here it is in a nutshell: For the most part, the only ones who benefit from his communist policies, are the wastes of flesh at the bottom, who we are better off without anyways. The very few who actually deserve welfare, are usually only on it long enough to get back on their feet. So really what these policies do is provide for a perpetual (nonhumans) and growing (illegals) societal cancer.
    .
    If he honestly wants to improve the quality of life for “His People”, the best way to do it would be to provide them with incentives and motivation to better themselves. In my opinion, this would best be accomplished through a two year cap on welfare, five if getting an education. Also, cease all immigration to the US, especially from the Lower Americas.
    .
    Sink or Swim and stop giving an honest damn about those who sink.

    • IstvanIN

      No amount of incentives can improve the black race. Only by cutting them off completely from all civilization and letting them evolve is there any hope for them to advance.

  • [Guest]

    I don’t want to “relate” to your race, Mr. Obama. I want nothing to do with it in any way at any time for any reason.

  • Michelle

    Reduce income inequality lol. Obama is such a communist.. His communist ways disgust me.. I wonder if he’s aware he’s the worst president Americas ever had. I hope he Google’s himself,i would hate for him to think he’s done anything but a disastrous job,but an excellent job at ruining peoples lives, peoples neighbourhoods,schools and jobs. Oh yeah and he did a great job at ruining Americas health care system. He’s unconstitutional and doesn’t deserve to lead a country… But then again, black people ruin everything,why would Obama be any different.

    • IstvanIN

      He is just doing what African leaders do best.

      • Truthseeker

        If Obama doesn’t want to retire after his second term is up, I’ll bet a lot of African countries would love to have him as their president. He probably feels more loyalty to them than he does the American people.

  • bigone4u

    I can’t think of anything good that’s gotten better under the Kenyan mystery man. The travel agency that plans White House trips has stayed busy. So have the golf courses. Reggie Love must be doing OK. Moosechelle has a platform to spout her nonsense. But for the rest of us, has anything gotten better? Are you expecting things to get better? A community organizer might be able to organize a community (whatever that means), but organizing a country is just too big a job for a no-talent, lying, teleprompter reader.

    • IstvanIN

      Reggie Love isn’t dead, amazing. As for “The First Lady”, she has had more vacations than any welfare recipient ever, plus she got to humiliate, or diss if you prefer, Queen Elizabeth and King Juan Carlos. As for Barry, I never thought anyone could make Jimmy Carter look good, so that is an accomplishment right there.

      • Sick of it

        A little bit more and he will make FDR look good.

  • Greg Thomas

    Reduce “income inequality?” In other words, hard working Whites will be expected to surrender even more of their earned money to diversity.

    • willbest

      One would hope it would mean taxing the wealth of Silicon Valley billionaires hell bent on destroying the middle class, but it most certainly means what you say.

  • A Freespeechzone

    In the world of business there IS competition at every level.

    If a certain ‘group’ is unable to compete due to the lack of education or skills, the most qualified will always be selected and hired & even if Obama threatens and succeeds to intimidate businesses–ALL parties LOSE.

    When a certain ‘group’ realizes that competition IS the lifeblood of business and breaks cultural bonds to gain education and skills to compete, things will get worse.

    Best that all be realists and prepare accordingly as Obama’s prediction might come true.

    • Greg Thomas

      Obama equates “competition” to racism.

  • Evette Coutier

    The Obama plan: spend more money on those who can’t or won’t be productive. This is like having a basketball team give raises and dump all the teams resources into the waterboy believing that it will lead to the championship while the starters are sent to the cold showers. Obama, what a genius.

  • MBlanc46

    They’ll certainly get worse if the racist in the White House keeps on as he has been doing.

  • Funruffian

    So, Obongo openly admits that there is racial strife based on economic competition, Affirmative Action and racial envy. For the past five years he acted as if race was inconsequential. Now, with all of the Trayvon/Zimmerman hoopla and Black on White crime aftermaths he thinks he can identify the problem? What a turd. He has just contradicted his entire life’s work. You see Mr. Usurper, Communism is destructive and your election was the harbinger of bad times to come. But you have more important things to do, like blaming George W., attacking White privilege, and covering up all your crimes against the Constitution.

    – Are you sure it’s not 11-11?
    – Absolutely! This 1-1-1-1!
    – In that case, I’m sorry to wake you!
    – It’s okay, I still had to get up – the phone rang …

  • IKantunderstand

    Man, I hope he means that Whites will finally have had enough of AA and decide to fight back. I hope he thinks that a White insurrection is on the horizon. I hope he has info from NSA from Whites around America who are just completely fed up. I hope that the imminent uprising of Whites is considered to be such a done deal, that the purchase of munitions by non military government entities, is considered necessary by the rogue so- called government. When the weather service orders hollow point munitions, the rogue government might just as well declare war on all Whites. I actually think that there is no imminent threat of attack by Whites, but I do believe this rogue government is seeking to find a way to declare war on Whites , the NRA, and the second amendment. My fellow Whites, be prepared. Do not register your guns. I hate to say this, but stop acting White. You know what I mean.

    • Ed_NY

      I am glad I read all of the comments first because I was going to make a very similar post. I wouldn’t want to be guilty of plagiarism. I totally agree with your post!

  • NM156

    How exactly will massive spending on early childhood education, with borrowed Chinese money, create an avalanche of economic growth? Maybe some Keynesian econo-genius can explain this to us.

    • Ed_NY

      That would be just wasting money. Personality and intelligence are pretty much set at birth. Spending money on trying to educate a low IQ bantu who is prone to violence and antisocial behavior is not going to create economic growth.

    • It won’t but it will allow the feds to hire more groids and greasers with GEDs for pretend, make-work chairwarming jobs, and that’s what our First Railway Baggage Porter In Chief wants.

  • Romulus

    More injections of magic green paper won’t help!! The forced suburban busing will do nothing but obviate existing problems.

America can’t handle the “change we have now!

    “Income Equality”. Isn’t that what the communists promised but failed to deliver. It doesn’t work Mr. President. With all of the handouts, racial set asides, quotas, scholarships, affirmative-action and a whole bunch of assorted discriminatory laws and practices in favor of your kind and they are still on the bottom rung of the ladder. Sorry Mr. President, I worked hard for what I have, I have paid more then my fair share of taxes and I am tired of bending over backwards for your peeps.

    • I haven’t worked in my old field in 13 years, and I haven’t worked a regular job at all in seven years. This is my contribution to income-equality. That’s also probably 200 patents some company didn’t get.

      Sorry, Mr. President; I ain’t working no more. You and your “people” can go do that, along with a bunch of other things the moderator would delete, but I’m done maybe forever and certainly in this country. Go pretend to “invent” us a helicopter or charge in and save the day or something. Your “share” of the pie just got smaller because this bakery is closed. How are you going to “redistribute” what I don’t contribute? Who’s the bitch now, negro?

  • MikeofAges

    Obama is right for once. America needs economic nationalism and a greater sense of differentiation between itself and the other. But he sure ain’t the one to deliver those things. His black constituency know that as well as we do. They support him because they know that the government will sell out the people no matter who is in power, and they figure they are getting something out of the deal, someone of their own descent as president before the whole thing fails. I don’t think they expect much out of this guy beyond image.

  • I’d rather they just starved. We work as little as possible, just to avoid having to pay income taxes. I won’t work at all; that’s a done deal.

    Where the rich are concerned, I think the ones who hire H-1bs ought to watch us break their kids down for organ transplants.

  • ms_anthro

    And how many Whites out there with nothing to lose are ready and waiting for this eventuality?

    These monsters want war with us. I’m sure of it now. They are confident they’ll win, which makes them either incredibly stupid or incredibly good at hiding a trump card we haven’t seen yet.
