Barack Obama: ‘Most Americans’ believe that our nation is racist

Obama Waving - Public Domain

On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist.

Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground of Martha’s Vineyard. But on Saturday, the Divider in Chief decided to stoke the dying embers in the small St. Louis suburb, just in case he could cash in on a late campaign issue.

“Too many young men of color feel targeted by law enforcement — guilty of walking while black or driving while black, judged by stereotypes that fuel fear and resentment and hopelessness,” the president told the mostly black crowd at the Congressional Black Caucus dinner.

Mr. Obama, America’s first half-white, half-black president, pointed out in the crowd the parents of Michael Brown, the black teenager killed by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, after, according to police, he robbed a liquor store.

  1. I think the black population of this country has some very real problems.
    The statistics support the notion that they may be more likely to end up in jail.
    The education system is part of this problem.
    A book in the mid 80s called Dress for Success outlines the problem unintentionally.
    We all live in a society that depends a lot on appearance.
    If I went out and tried to sell real estate in a green suit, no one would trust me. There is a color psychology out there. It is part of the culture that exists in this country and abroad.
    Yet if I dressed in a conservative moderate color grey or blue suit, I would get trust from a lot of people that would suddenly see me as professional.
    The slavery issue of an ignorant people has gone way beyond the original South and the Civil War.
    These people at the end of that war were not educated to read and write.
    The irony of the situation is that there are no pure races out there. The irony is that like any uniform characteristic, whether it be a military uniform or a racial one, they are psychologically painted by that uniform characteristic of being of a dark color. Of having Negroid Racial characteristics vs Caucasion, or even Mongolian racial charcteristics. And before anyone paints this as prejudice, there are three distinct racial groups in the world. I argue that the American Indian is a possible fourth group. Forensic experts can destinguish between one and onother racial group.
    If someone was given DNA testing they can tell racial background of just about any one on the planet. That means that a lot of white people are actually technically black! The fact is there is a large group of hybrid racial characteristics not only here but just about every nation on the planet.
    The combination of genes mixed between Caucasion and Negroid(The technical term of the races) often means the children of those people are close to or are actually geniuses.
    Same with other combinations of Mongolian and Caucasion and Negroid races.
    I have seen examples of all racial groups that have bred cousins or closer. The result there is normally someone with an unusually high level of genetic diseases.
    The ancient Egyptians used this to breed Pharoahs. The trick was to breed the daughter of the brother of the Pharoah with the Pharoah. 2/3rds of the children were defective. But that 1/3rd were often very talented individuals. That included the slaves of Egypt approximately 3,000 years ago as well. The scientific community of the time were priests. It did not stop them from trying to breed a slave race in Egypt. That backfired big time with Moses. They had those Jewish People for 400 years to breed with.
    The combination of genes from many different countries is basically what has supplied an enormous pool of talent right here in the USA.
    My feeling is that vocabulary has a lot to do with how we judge people. Just as the way people dress is a judge factor that most people do not even know they are doing it..
    A friend of ours is a woman we worked with. She is black. What I did not know was that this woman has worked very hard for many years to overcome her background. She currently holds 3 degrees in various subjects. When we first met her she stuttered. She spoke with a black leaning in her speach. In 15 years I have seen this woman completely turn herself around. She is a well educated woman, she does not stutter any more, and she continues to improve herself any way she can. Last year she had breast cancer. She succeeded in fighting it off with Chemo. It is gone for now.
    That woman has my complete respect. She is a divorced woman with 3 children. All three children have made something of themselves. She often takes care of her grandchildren.
    She can call on me anytime, anywhere, if she needs help. Why? Because she is a fighter. She does not know the meaning of the word defeat. Every time she gets down, she gets back up and keeps fighting for what she wants.
    Our President is part black, and part white. I do not agree with him a lot of the time but I respect him because he has pulled himself up by his bootstraps and he is well educated. He is also a very persuasive person. He goes down in history as our first Black President. Only that is just half true.
    He benefits from both sides of his genetic history.
    The way to defeat prejudice is to produce an image. That image is not one of defeat and crime. It is one of fighting your way up the ladder. It is because you are good at what you do not because of your racial background. It is because we all need to never give up on what we want out of life.
    So many kids today look forward to a short life and drugs. I say the kids need to do away with it on their streets and make sure it goes away. That is harder than it sounds. But that is what needs to happen. Anything that stands in the way of people making a success out of themselves has to go.
    That attitude has no racial boundaries.
