Remember, there is no Black America or White America. But there is an Affirmative Action America as this 90s Obama NPR interview shows.
Here’s Obama claiming that most Americans are racists who resent minorities. That’s the 90s. Did his perspective change since then?
“After watching their incomes stagnate or decline over the past decade, the majority of Americans are in an ugly mood and deeply resent any advantages, real or perceived, that minorities may enjoy,” Obama said.
Every now and then, as with Michelle Obama’s “pride” remark, we get a glimpse behind the curtain and what is behind the curtain is very predictable.
Some other comments from the interview are listed at Daily Caller, including Obama’s defense of Affirmative Action.
Murray, Obama said, was “interested in pushing a very particular policy agenda, specifically the elimination of affirmative action and welfare programs aimed at the poor. With one finger out to the political wind, Mr. Murray has apparently decided that white America is ready for a return to good old-fashioned racism so long as it’s artfully packaged and can admit for exceptions like Colin Powell,” Obama said. “It’s easy to see the basis for Mr. Murray’s calculations.”
