I’ve never seen such as a big a bunch of racial hypocrisy as I have over the last two years. Those who are so quick to scream “Racist” and accuse anyone who objects to this president’s agenda as being a racist, just as quickly are giving this president a pass simply because of his color.
Unhappy members of the Congressional Black Caucus “probably would be marching on the White House” if Obama were not president, according to CBC Chairman Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.).
“If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House,” Cleaver told “The Miami Herald” in comments published Sunday. “There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president.”
CBC members have expressed concern in recent months as the unemployment rate has continued to rise amongst African-Americans, pushing for Obama to do more to address the needs of vulnerable communities.
“We’re supportive of the president, but we getting tired, y’all,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said in August. “We want to give [Obama] every opportunity, but our people are hurting. The unemployment is unconscionable. We don’t know what the strategy is.”
Apparently, there is affirmative action going on even in the White House because if you happen to be born a different color you will not be held to the same standard that others would be held to. Race must now be much more important than principles, performance, and true leadership.
