So much for ‘post racial’.
From BizPac Review.
As Obama heads towards the end of his term he is transitioning into what his role will be post-presidency.
And, if his commencement speech to students at Howard University on Saturday is any indication, that role will resemble a new age Al Sharpton.
Never one to miss an opportunity to divide Americans into groups, the president urged the students at the traditionally black university to “Be confident in your heritage, be confident in your blackness.”
The statement left many white people to ask, “shall I be confident in my whiteness?”
Obama continued to beat the drum of black victimhood for his captive audience.……“Remember the tie that does bind us as African-Americans and that is our particular awareness of injustice and unfairness and struggle,” he told the new graduates.……“That’s a pet peeve of mine, people who’ve been successful and don’t realize they’ve been lucky, that God may have blessed them,” he continued. “It wasn’t nothing you did, so don’t have an attitude.”
Nah, it couldn’t be that successful people worked their way to the top could it, Barky? They ‘didn’t build that’, right?
(Obama) didn’t stop with separating whites from blacks.
He made certain to let the black women in the audience know they are double victims.
“Harriet Tubman may be going on the 20, but we’ve still got a gender gap when a black woman working full-time still earns just 66 percent of what a white man gets paid,” he said.
Throwing the race card and practicing victimology is so much easier than personal accountability.
He encouraged the students to vote as well and be willing to compromise.
“Change requires more than just speaking out, it requires listening as well. In particular it requires listening to those with whom you disagree and being prepared to compromise,” Obama said. “”Even when you are 100 percent right, this is hard to explain sometimes, you can be completely right and you are still going to engage folks who disagree with you.”
Is he serious?
That from a man who’s “my way or the highway” attitude has created gridlock for 7 years.
‘My way or the highway’ is a fucking understatement. For the last 8 years, the mutherfucker has violated the Constitution and broken the law in order to push his sense of entitlement. What’s worse: The GOP majority in Congress has done nothing to stop him. He’s been the most racist, divisive shitbag ever to hold office.
By the way: Can I be confident in my whiteness?
