Obama on his record in race relations.

Our President had the temerity to extol his record on “improving race relations” in the United States under his leadership. “I think the overall trajectory of race relations in this country is actually very positive,” he said.

Americans were proud, and rightfully so, when the nation elected our first black President. I didn’t like Obama’s politics and did not vote for him, but I did think on the day of his inauguration that his presidency would usher in a new paradigm in US race relations. It turned out that I was right, but in the wrong direction. Race relations are the worst they have been in a long time and certainly worse than Obama’s inauguration day.


I have posted many times on the deterioration of race relations under out first African American President.

Identity politics and ‘race baiting.’

Liberals of all stripes would benefit from the purchase of a dictionary. Their constant retreat into “identity politics” is remarkably destructive to the fabric of America. There is a difference between racism and prejudice.

Racism: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and those racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.

Prejudice: preconceived judgment or opinion or, alternatively, an adverse opinion or leaning formed without just grounds or before sufficient knowledge.

Just about everyone is biased (prejudiced) about something. For example, if one is walking at night and sees a group of teenagers wearing sagging pants and angled baseball caps hanging out in front of a store they might cross the street to proceed. Nota bene, I did not say whether they were white teenagers or black teenagers or whether the “one walking at night” was a white American or black American. Life experiences cause one to make judgments that motivate a course of action that “categorizes” a group. I know a number of jewish liberals who will never buy a German product. These are prejudices, not racism.

Racism is abhorrent. It’s also rare. What’s not rare, however, is how often liberals hurl accusations of racism to silence their opposition.

    I believe this is the only thing he actually could say, without mentioning the fact of all your above statements. He came in hating white people, and he leaves hating white people. He knows where the money he needs is, and how to manipulate people to get it. But he leaves hating, probably, most people, be they white or needy blacks. I certainly hope he enjoyed himself during his eight years living one someone else’s dime. If not, he is a hypocrite.

    The problem is not that we elected the first half-black/half-white president but that we elected a socialist, Alinski-ite, anti-American half-black president. We could elect any number of more qualified black presidents who actually loved this country, our people and its Founding Principles and be just fine. It shouldn’t matter the race. What mattered in Obama’s case is that he was elected FOR being half-black and nothing else: his racists church, his socialism, his hatred of anything European, his disdain for our Constitution, his gross and unpleasant wife, his toxic personality disorders, his terrorists and anti-American buddies, shady undocumented past, his dislike of me and mine.

    Amen to the well-stated two replies above. However, they did not mention the fraudulence the Big O used to be elected. It is the method of of deceit all socialists use to try to spread their deficient and failed sociological ideology. Obama is not only a fraud and loser when compared to the ideals of the original founding of this country, but in my opinion his actions are also criminal to our great nation.
