In Wake of Police Shootings, Obama Speaks More Bluntly About Race

Perry Bacon, Jr., NBC News, January 3, 2015

Casting aside some of his past wariness on the issue, President Barack Obama has spoken more bluntly about race in the wake of a group of police killings of African-American men.

In interviews and speeches the last several weeks, after grand juries declined to indict police officers in Ferguson or Staten Island for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, the president has invoked the word “racism”–a term he has used sparingly in the past when describing conditions in America today–to describe the challenges blacks and other minorities face.

He has described racial discrimination as “embedded deeply in society.”

And Obama, who in a 2012 interview told the magazine Black Enterprise “I’m not the president of Black America,” is now embracing the role of guiding the country in a public debate about how minorities and the police interact. He told Fusion in an interview “nobody’s going to be pushing harder than me” on these highly-charged issues.

“The president has essentially changed his racial rhetoric,” said Paul Butler, a Georgetown Law professor and civil rights expert. “It has evolved from cultural critiques of African-Americans to his actually saying the word ‘racism.'”

The last few weeks are part of a broader shift by the first black president in addressing race more directly. During his 2008 campaign, Obama invoked race rarely and only when necessary, delivering a well-received speech on the issue after the controversy surrounding his onetime pastor Jeremiah Wright.

{snip}

But the administration has changed its approach since Obama won reelection, adopting policies directly targeted at blacks and other minorities and interjecting itself into racial controversies.

In the last two years, Obama has attempted to limit jail sentences for people who commit non-violent drug crimes, strongly condemned voter ID provisions decried by civil rights leaders and created My Brother’s Keeper, a set of initiatives designed to benefit black and Latino young men.

And, perhaps most memorably, the president himself has spoken in personal terms about race, saying “Trayvon Martin could have been me,” after George Zimmerman was found not guilty in Martin’s shooting death.

But in that 2013 speech about Martin, the president hinted he would not be looking to deliver more addresses on America’s racial divide.

{snip}

In part, the president seems to be reacting to the protest movement on policing around the country, and he is not the only prominent figure who has embraced some of its ideas. In a recent speech, Hillary Clinton, Obama’s potential successor, declared “black lives matter,” one of the phrases that the protesters in Ferguson and New York often invoke. Obama has praised NBA player Lebron James and other athletes who have worn shirts that say “I can’t breathe,” the phrase Garner used as New York police had him in a chokehold.

With the president’s attention on these issues now, civil rights advocates are now trying to push him to adopt policies beyond the body cameras. The NAACP Legal Fund is urging the Department of Justice to require police departments that get federal funding to have all of their officers undergo racial bias training. Other activists, including Packnett, say the federal government should stop sending excess military equipment like armored vehicles to local police departments, a proposal Obama’s team has so far rejected.

  • I think what this is all about is that Barack Obama is setting himself up to be the new Al Sharpton after he’s done being President, considering (see the other AR thread today) about how lucrative it is to be the old Al Sharpton.

    • walt

      My God. I never even realized the fact that Obongo is not actually going to go away at the end of his term.

      • pcmustgo

        YEAH, HE’LL MAKE MILLIONS IN SPEAKER’S FEES AT COLLEGES PER YEAR.. more than Clinton! Get the little brat to pay reparations for slavery, he’s descended from slave-owners, lol.

        • dukem1

          I’ve said before…Preezy-O will make so much money when he’s out of office it would make a Clinton librarian blush.
          I suspect that with 2 years of lame-duckdom on his horizon, his “kitchen cabinet” (Ayers, Jarrett, et al) is starting to bail, lining up their next gig. This leaves him to his own, limited, devices.
          Expect more lowest common denominator rhetoric and leadership from the dimwit-in-chief in the months to come

          • pcmustgo

            Did you hear him and Michelle are headed for a divorce and moving to NYC… maybe she’ll dish a lot of dirt on him.

        • Juggernaut3000

          He’s already made millions and receives royalties from books he didn’t write. Any speeches he makes after office, which I doubt, will be written for him, just as they are now.

          The same “team” that controls Obama, controls ALL American politicians on both sides of the so-called aisle.

          They aren’t going anywhere.

      Obama’s presidential library might very well be filled with copies of black radical nationalist literature, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Sharpton concrated it.

    • nBmnp

      Excellent remark.

      Consider: He is not really a workaholic. A job where he can push his “cause” twice or three times a year – and be golfing the rest of the time – is the perfect job for him, much better than having to read the teleprompter almost every week.

      • His “bully pulpit” – as Theodore Roosevelt described it – also evaporates once he is out of office. He won’t have instant access 24/7 to the sycophantic media then.

        • Juggernaut3000

          He won’t have access to those who write his books and speeches for him.

          • He could always go back to writing brilliant articles for the Harvard Law Review… oh… my bad… never mind.

        • John R

          Good point. That is why even Al Sharpton was lately sounding more reasonable than Obama. Al intends to go on in his familiar role. Obama knows he will no longer be relevant after his term expires.

      • Juggernaut3000

        He’s able to golf and vacation all the time because of a complicit media.

        Obama is no better than a programmed robot, signing whatever he is told to sign, reading whatever is put into his teleprompter.

        Obama has no “cause” except leisure and money.

        I wish people here would stop giving him so much credit for anything he does, good or bad, he only does what his handlers tell him to do.

        • nBmnp

          Exactly that is also my impression. Just look at him how lost he is without teleprompter. (check for “Obama teleprompter” on Youtube)

          • Juggernaut3000

            Yes- he stumbles and bumbles and “er’s” and “ah’s” until he’s rescued by his handlers.

      • John R

        Yeah, what “work” did he have on his resume? Community organizer?

    • See The Future

      He will be too busy playing golf.

    • John R

      He IS the new Al Sharpton, only worse: He has far more power. He is doing his damndest to hurt this country before he finally leaves office.

    • nicholasstix

      “after he’s done being President”

      What makes you so sure he ever plans on giving up that job?

      • Being the New Al Sharpton will probably pay a lot better and give him even more time to golf.

        • nicholasstix

          Sure, it would, but it would not be acceptable to the alleged woman wearing the pants in the White House.

    NoBama has always hated the police – and the Military, and any Intel Agency – and basically every authority figure.

      Mekong…I suppose you don’t have school-age kids anymore, so you miss the disgusting Disney Channel stunt where they had The Worst Lady, Michelle Obama, do a cameo for the show “Jessie”…The main character, Jessie, is a nanny for the wealthy family depicted in the show, where the parents collect adopted children from around the globe like Angelina and Brad. The youngest kid in the family, their black “daughter”, calls her “homie” Michelle to do her a favor for a friend who’s mom is on active duty, and Michelle shows up at their house, giving this smarmy, completely false speech about “how much our military means to us, how much my husband and I support our men and women in uniform…” Ugh.

      Every time it comes on, my eight-year-old says, “Oh, no, not THIS episode again! Quick, change the channel before Mom comes in and gives us another speech.”

      • Reading that sort of thing has me hating cable TV even more.

      • Juggernaut3000

        This is shoved down our children’s throats 24/7 from birth. The latest item on the War on White agenda is showing the gay lifestyle to be preferable and “breeder” relationships to be abnormal. It’s permeating our schools and children’s media.

        Keep giving your children speeches, show them the great accomplishments of the White Race, because what they’ll learn in school (if you’re not home-schooling them, that is) is that their White ancestors were nothing more than barbaric tyrants, thieves, rapists, enslavers, warmongers & conquerers with absolutely no redeeming qualities.

        If you don’t stop the anti-White agenda in your own home, who will?

        Teach your children well.

        • Nancy

          Hey JGN3000,

          I home-schooled all of them until the oldest two were in late middle school, but they really wanted to go to “regular school” for 9th-12th grades, so they could pursue cheer, marching band, etc. Since I’m already a certified teacher, it wasn’t difficult for me to home-school, and it’s cool to be able to say that you taught all of your kids how to read and write.

          I actually worked as a private-school liaison years ago as well, helping new home-school parents set up a home-school study program, schedule, evaluations, etc., and keeping it all under the umbrella of that private school’s “name” for an annual fee, a fraction of what that school’s tuition would’ve cost. It was a small, part-time paycheck.

          When the economy turned bad around ’07-08, the need for my full-time income became unavoidable. School has (on the whole) been great for mine, with the exception of the need to regularly “deprogram” them from whatever nonsense they learn in “social studies”.

    The only racism that is legit in America is anti-white racism. We are mocked in entertainment, our culture is belittled in academia, the government has affirmative action that only punishes white males and the media refuses to report anti-white hate crimes and murders yet runs any infraction committed to negroes as a major story, night after night, day after day.

        Scott your comment is part of the problem. Don’t you know that many of those who cant be named are actually on our side and want us to have our own homeland like they do? They have no agency or undue influence in our countries either. They are victims here just like us, it is the liberal media, politicans and bankers that are the only problem. Just that group that can’t be named owns and runs the media, banks, and plays king maker in our government doesn’t mean that have any influence in the institutions I just mentioned.

      You forgot that on TV in *every* crime series in *every* episode, *every* criminal is White (not White males only, they quite often feature White females as the murderer, in fact probably more often than their share in reality)

      • Ultimate187

        Most of the protagonists (at least the main one) is usually white too though.

        • nBmnp

    It’s no longer about justice. It’s about revenge.

    • LHathaway

      This is so true. This is all that it is about now. Everything else is just word play and going through the motions. I’m pretty sure I will not live to see it. Nothing we say or do here will likely have any influence over it. Never-the-less I hope some young person is listening. Who will be the target, I would pick out all established white nationalists, first (and perhaps most of their supporters)? None of them have come up with any words of positive effect, quite the opposite in most cases. This is what always happens when regimes change. History records this in every instance. Justice demands it, perhaps. The hammer will fall hardest on established leftists most likely. Even those who previously had been held in high esteem by the establishment. It won’t happen, I don’t think, until we have our own White nation/reservation. How many will it be, dozens, hundreds, thousand, who can say but we will collect them, brand them, and place them outside our border.

      • Texan1st

        That’s why they’re systematically softening and racially neutering the younger generations of whites — especially males. When they make their move en mass, any semblance of white unity will have already been shattered and every white male will feel like he has no allies. And white females will wonder where the white men are to protect them from the violence. A fractured race cannot successfully fight a race war against a unified racial army, regardless of numerical advantage. And the more they dwindle our numbers in addition to fracturing our unity, the harder it will be to mount a successful defense, much less a counter-offensive.

        • Juggernaut3000

          They’re feminizing White males and indoctrinating them with the belief that being gay is preferable to being heterosexal. If that doesn’t work, the media push mixed marriages.

          Anything to thin White numbers. One of the reasons our overlords are rattling sabres for WW III.

          • ElComadreja

            Homosexuality is always presented as a “hip” desirable thing in the media. You’ll never see perverts hanging around rest stops on TV.

          • Or in shopping malls.

          • Sick of it

            Absolutely. Whites would be pushed into combat duty and die in droves. White nations would be set against white nations. All while the creature we cannot name rubs its hands gleefully.

        • LHathaway

          I agree with that. Despite all the bluster one reads from time to time whites would likely lose a race war in this nation. People of color wouldn’t simply announce it. Most whites would wake up dead, reporting their demise to no one. Once it got started there would be no turning back, the guilty would fear punishment from the establishment and have more incentive than anyone to ‘win’, their lives would depend on it. Many of those involved also would not be too keen on returning to their jobs in the shipping department. Whites might not even be capable of holding a few states. In any case that could be a problem that could be dealt with later. How difficult is it to send 20 guys with guns to the airport in a civilization that has broken down? Can a small plane reach Boise from NYC without refueling? That’s all assuming it is an untelevised event and not a slow, purposeful breakup.

          • UncleSham

            When you say “People of color” do you mean Blacks, Blacks plus Hispanics, or all non-Whites? I do not think that Blacks are capable of organizing and carrying out a large scale attack without Whites finding out before hand. These are people who are known for posting videos of their crimes to Facebook and youtube; not the most secretive bunch. Hispanics have no incentive to start a race war. All they have to do is bide their time and keep impregnating each other and the country will be theirs in a few generations. Other groups are too few in number to occupy any meaningful amount of territory in the United States.

            Whites may be asleep, but we are a sleeping giant. It is still too early for any group to attempt to aggressively wipe us out without causing an awakening that they will regret.

    • MannyR

      It’s about Black/ Tribal supremacy. Every white nationalist I know wants only one thing. A plot of land on this earth away from these vile humans. They don’t want genocide, they don’t want to enslave anyone, they simply wish to be left alone in order to live their life among their own people. That isn’t what they want. They want genocide, they want whites to support them with taxes at the barell of a gun while at the same time murdering, raping, assaulting and demeaning white Americans with no ramifications. They want what our ancestors fought for and built because they know they will never create anything even remotely similar. They want a boogie man to blame for their genetic shortcomings. Our side is just, theirs is evil.

      • Juggernaut3000

        Blacks have no power in the US. They have limited sub-100 IQs and no ability to organize themselves. This includes Obama, whose speeches and books are written for him.

        Did he rise to power pulling himself up by his own bootstraps? Or did he have a LOT of help, was this done for him? Maybe because he’s a perfect foil; any/all criticism can be chalked up immediately to racism, hatred and bigotry.

        Blacks are only doing what they’re allowed to get away with by those who cover for them, make excuses for their criminals behavior and incite them to attack Whites.

        The same forces that cover and agitate for blacks have their jackboots on our White necks, threatening us with career and personal destruction if we speak out against black crime, object to the on-going War on Whites or protest against the genocide being conducted against us.

        Want to see our fate? Look to what is happening to minority Whites in South Africa, where blacks are slaughtering them with impunity while the Western media look the other way.

      • Our side isn’t always just, but we manage rather better than anyone else. Our side is at least human, with the usual shortcomings associated with that condition, but also the advantages. Questions about the executions of Julius and Ethyl Rosenberg were raised about their surviving family members for decades, but KGB documents declassified and released after the Cold War showed they were guilty as hell, so the US made a completely proper call there.

      • ElComadreja

        I have to disagree on one point. They’re vile but they’re not human.

    • See The Future

      Black will keep up their assault on whites until every last white has been killed. Or until whites have had enough and do the reverse.

      • Juggernaut3000

        Blacks will keep up their assault on Whites until we stop those who incite and agitate for blacks and cover, rationalize and justify their criminal, violent behavior, i.e., the media, government and academic system. That’s where the problem is.

        Blacks could be taken care of quickly, as they were in the days before Cultural Marxism took over the levers of power in the U.S. They knew harming a White meant harsh, immediately retaliation, the only thing blacks understand in their shrunken brains.

        If blacks or their stupid leaders had any intelligence or sense they would stop the flooding of the US with 3rd world immigrants who compete with them for a shrinking “piece of the American entitlement pie.” They would comprehend that without Whites, their world will be either violent chaos or anarchy, or a strong-arm government that will liquidate them.

    • nBmnp

      Revenge? For what? For social security? For clean water? For affirmative action? For lionizing them in the media?

      Whites should never say it is about revenge, because that would implicate that there would be actually something that could incite revenge.

      • John R

        You know that; I know that; most on this site know that. Blacks have no reason to want revenge on us Whites for rescuing them from their savage existence. But this is all about PERCEPTION. Blacks THINK they have reason to take revenge. That is all that matters. Perception is everything.

        • nBmnp

          Exactly. And that is why Whites need to stop pushing THEIR narrative by talking about “revenge”.

          It’s not about revenge. It is a robbery on a larger scale.

      Because they’re been told by the media, government and schools since birth that their worst enemy, the cause of all of their failures is the White race. Blacks, with their limited cranial capacity and inability to control their violent tendencies are easy to incite and agitate. They make a perfect battering ram to use against White America. There will be payback, but it must be against the root of the problem, not the branches. Blacks are the branches.

      Two non-White police officers are blown away in NY City by a murderous black.

      White race is blamed.

    • Sick of it

      Revenge implies a wrong done to one’s person, family, or property. Since we’ve GIVEN so many of these people what they need to survive, job preferences, etc. what wrong have we done? They do not think in terms of past and future, so slavery has nothing to do with it. This is their essential nature. They hate everyone different from them and want to wipe them out. They enjoy tormenting people prior to ritually slaughtering them. This is their nature. Read history. Study the bones in the earth. Both tell the same story.

  • David Ashton

    Look again at what Obeyah said in “The Audacity of Hope”, Chapter 7 on “Race”, notably on liberal policy-makers and civil rights leaders ignoring “entrenched behavioral patterns among the black poor” and the frustration of hardworking blacks privately bemoaning poor parenting and declining sexual mores, and demanding more aggressive police protection.

    • Juggernaut3000

      He said nothing of the sort. Both of his books were written for him, the first by Ayers, the second by Favreau, Obama’s speechwriter:

      “In October 2006, Audacity debuted to kind reviews and huge sales. Despite Obama’s “unforgiving Senate schedule and periodic bouts of writer’s block,” he had been able to write a 216-page book without any acknowledged writing help in what was likely an 18-month window. This was the same writer who blew a $125,000 advance because he was unable to produce a book during “several” much less hectic years, the same writer who between his 1995 masterpiece and Audacity had written nothing deeper than a column for a community newsletter.”

      “The three existing samples of Obama’s prose before Dreams — the 1983 article “Breaking the War Mentality,” the 1988 article “Why Organize,” and his unsigned 1990 Harvard Law Review case note — are proof enough that Barack Obama is, in fact, a crappy writer.”

      “Obama knew he had a problem on his hands when Dreams was republished in 2004. He recruited Ayers to write the (post-modernist) preface to the 2004 edition, but once he was elected to the Senate they both knew that Ayers was poison. To achieve continuity, Ayers, I believe, wrote the prologue to Audacity. It is the best-written part of the book. From here, Favreau took over. An “accomplished impersonator,” he labored to make extended passages of Audacity sound like Dreams. It was a good effort, but he simply does not write as well as Ayers does.”

    Hey obama- Just one time in one of your speeches try to take the non-negro point of view. You really are supposed to be the president of all the people.

    • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

      You are asking the impossible. Blacks do not have the power of empathy necessary to consider, or even remotely comprehend, any point of view other than their own. Even in blacks of exceptional intelligence, you will always find this trait lacking. Trying to get them to think “outside their own head” will be invariably met with confusion and/or anger.

      My favorite example is the insistence of blacks that we have the luxury of “not knowing what they know,” as if there’s some mystical knowledge of the ways of the world that comes with blackness. In reality of course, we know everything they know and a hell of a lot they can’t fathom. But since we don’t see things the way they do, it must be due to some knowledge we lack. Never could they comprehend the idea that maybe we see something they don’t.

    Oh, goody. And I was thinking Obama had already been plenty blunt where race is concerned. Maybe now we can all learn what he REALLY thinks. /sarc/

  • Musashi5000

    Look for the progs, lefties, and sundry other trash to kick their favorite pets right under the bus.

    Yup, blacks are able to inspire that level of contempt.

    • nBmnp

      I’m pretty sure that they are already loathed under the rug even in liberal circles.

      But I don’t see them voicing their “racism” openly any time soon.

      • mael

        Liberals tend to live in all White communities. Gated ones with guards. Diversity for thee but not for me.

        • The rich ones, yes, but not the young hipsters. The ones who have recently moved out of their parents’ homes aren’t affluent enough to afford gated neighborhoods, and given the way industry plutocrats – with the connivance of both the dems and neocons – are hiring H-1b visas and demanding more, those hipsters probably never will be.

          I could feel a little pity for folks who’s ability to critically think for themselves hadn’t been so completely brainwashed out of them by pop culture and its promoters in the mainstream media, if only they – and their voting habits – weren’t destructive on such an epic level to the society on which they completely depend.

          Instead, many of these millenials will be forever denied high-paying jobs, and stuck serving lattes and croissants at Starbucks, where they will have to compete with illegal aliens. Their response will predictably be demanding ever-higher minimum wages for utterly unskilled work: $15 an hour today, so why not $30, with full dental coverage in a few years? How about $50?

          They’re the folks who are going to be filling body bags when Civil War Two finally kicks off, so eventually they’ll pay. The Law of Unintended Consequences means that when starry-eyed din-dongs are permitted to demand everything they want, they receive plenty of other things as well.

          • MannyR

            Your very correct, they not only live in diverse neighborhoods (run down sections of town with gay bars and needle exchange centers on the corners) but their also anti gun as it comes. When the dollar implodes they’ll be the first the brothers ” get money ” from.

      • Musashi5000

        It depends on how frightened they become.

  • Albert

    Hmm. Roughly 13% of the population is black. It wasn’t the black vote that won him the presidency– TWICE. IF the majority of whites in our nation were truly as racist as he claims, would he be sitting in the highest office of the nation?

    • RedOnTheHead

      IF the majority of people in our nation were truly as stupid as Gruber claims, would he be sitting in the highest office of the nation?

      • UncleSham

        Yes. Gruber’s statements were somewhat refreshing in a way. Its a rarity that we get to hear Leftist academics speak candidly about how they manipulate the American people.

    • Musashi5000

      If only they were racist.

    • MannyR

      The fact that whites exist on this earth without chains around our necks is racist. Black America wants us enslaved, I’m not joking. About a year ago at work while on lunch The Walking Dead show was on and a conversation started as to what you’d do if society fell apart. I jest not a black said ” Oh I’m slaving people out, I’m rolling with a group and we findin whoever, we putting chains on em everything”. The rest of the group at the table who were also black started to laugh and agree. I sat there shocked that my co workers were so stupid they didn’t get which group he was referring to. Get your guns now, get your ammo now. If you have to default on a credit card in order to buy more weapons and shells don’t even hesitate. Your credit score isn’t going to mean squat in another 3 years anyway.

  • JohnEngelman

    Obama needs to get blunt with his core constituency. He need to tell them that as long as they continue to commit all those crimes and to have all those illegitimate children most non blacks will have a low opinion of most of them, even though we may smile and lie about our feelings in public.

    • MBlanc46

      Do you really expect this to happen, John?

      • JohnEngelman

        At this point, probably not.

        What President Obama needed to say to blacks he needed to say much earlier.

        • Screamin_Ruffed_Grouse

          “At this point?”

          Did you ever?

    • Musashi5000

      That’s naive.

      • JohnEngelman

        During the 1992 campaign Bill Clinton had his Sister Souljah moment, when he condemned Sister Souljah for saying, ” if black people kill black people every day, why not have a week and kill white people?”

        Since the Watts riot of 1965 blacks have been a burden to the Democratic Party. Race wrecked liberalism. Bill Clinton had the sense to realize that.

        • Musashi5000

          Those that derive political power and financial gain from the race industry have no interest in fixing anything. Bill Clinton did what he did as a pure political calculation, nothing more.

          • JohnEngelman

            I like Bill a lot. I voted for him in 1992 and 1996.

          • Musashi5000

            I don’t like him, I don’t dislike him.

            He is what he is however, and that is a politician.

    • mael

      Those kol nidre’s are great eh……………

  • IstvanIN

    Obama sounds like those South African black politicians who shout kill the Boer.

  • DD-762

    I’m finally convinced that whites are racist, since being told this for most of my life. The question is what can be done about it. Complaining by blacks is so passé. A law requiring whites not to be racist is unenforceable. Nor can the black culture be changed. It is a lose-lose situation.

    This subject can be discussed until the cows come home, but there is no solution other some type of segregation. How it may be implemented is is the million dollar question. Maybe this should be the discussion on race that Eric Holder wants.

    • Musashi5000

      War might work.

  • MannyR

    Did anyone with half a brain not see this coming? He doesn’t need to get reelected, he’s gonna let it all hang out the next 2 years. I’m surprised he hasn’t started to refer to whites as “crackas” yet. It’s gonna get real entertaining. God willing a nuke doesn’t go off in one of our major cities giving this garbage Popa Doc an excuse to stop the 2016 elections.

  • Capn Dad

    First of all anything that ovomit says is crap. Having said that, I would hope that, at least to the Caucasian American community, that it is becoming apparent that there is no solution to the “race” problem. Its a “cultural” problem. The American Black culture is incompatible with the American White culture. The only Blacks who have successfully integrated themselves into White America have adopted the White culture. We will forever be at each others throats. Its the way of nature. Prepare.

    • Sick of it

      I’ve never known anyone of any race who lied as often as Obama.

    Everything is racism and whitey’s fault, no need for logic or critical analysis of any situation.

    “The NAACP Legal Fund is urging the Department of Justice to require police departments that get federal funding to have all of their officers undergo racial bias training.”

    This is what that training will look like:

        I like the movie but the book is better, I must have reread it a dozen times over the years 🙂 Have you read his Earthly Powers? Good stuff.

        • LHathaway

          Well, I wouldn’t put it past them, an ability to condition him to dislike all classical music. Of course, Alex in the movie is not meant to be a stand in, a metaphor for Western man. No. No way. Nope. Couldn’t be.
          I’ve never read one of Burgess’ stories. I’ve read a short essay by him, at the least. But I really have no clue about this conservative author.

        Excellent cartoon! It states quite simply that blacks expect exemption from the laws that bind the rest of us, which is indeed their demand.

  • Reynardine

    “embedded deeply in society.”

    Oh noes! The racisms strikes again! Who knows where it will strike next… your kids? Your dog? BEHIND THE COUCH?

    That’s why I’m working with the Reverend Al Sharpton to bring you the world’s first racism detector. It beeps hysterically whenever white people enter the room and only turns off when they shove money into the “white guilt” slot.

    Buy one today!

      Priceless 😀

    • RationaliseThis

      And Obama, who in a 2012 interview told the magazine Black Enterprise “I’m not the president of Black America,”

      He most definitely is acting like “the black president on the side of black America”.

      Although his words are nuanced they betray his innate sympathies against Whites.

      His undermining of the judicial process during the Trayvon Martin case “could have been my son”. And again in the Martin Brown case where he said it was “understandable”. In this and other cases he has undermind both the police and judicial system. A step in the direction of administrative instead of judicial rule of law. If faith in thst system breaks down we will have either a civil order disaster (as seen by police executions) or an opportunity for him to reform the entire legals system along autocratic centralised lines. He is as responsible as de Blassio for this breakdown.

      Whites who hoped for redemption from the “post racial president” were taken in.

  • SimplyFred

    When O J Simpson slaughtered his wife in 1994 I thought whites would
    start walking up to blacks and telling them it was time for them to
    return to Africa. Twenty years later we have blacks raping 100 white
    women every day of the year, rain or shine. Worse, O J has the knife he
    used to stab his wife to death on sale on the internet. He wants 5
    million dollars for his trophy. Where are the indignant white people?

    • If OJ collects any money for that knife, Ron Goldman’s parents will get it, so I suspect a ghoulish attempt to humiliate them here, by paying them with the money from the knife he used to kill their son.

  • Lkoehn

    Racism is alive in America and the flames are fanned by the likes of Obama, Holder, Jarrett, Sharpton, Jackson, and the rest of the race baiters and white apologists that make a living from it and get votes because of it. As long as the lame stream media legitimize their activities it will exist and grow.

  • John Smith

    Barry has to keep driving the desired narrative forward.

  • Charles Martel

    The biggest problem with Obama are not his empty words. The problem is that he may well be one of the black as at the top of the bell curve (noting of course that he is 1/2 white). We’ll never really know until his college transcripts are released – if that EVER happens.

    No, my problem is that people see him and think “he’s an intelligent man, who is well spoken and a good family man” and therefore think that ALL blacks are capable of the same thing! It blinds them to the stark – and well documented – realities of the differences between the races.

  • John R

    Let me get this right: Since the murder of two police officers, by a black, in revenge for the perceived “racism” in American society, the president is now going to talk more openly about “racism”? I get it, I think: The more violent and out of control the black criminal element gets, the more we Whites must apologize for OUR behavior. (Groan) Another example of the upside down world of liberalism.
