Do you remember when Obama, hailed as the first post-racial president, pulled the race card May, 2010?

By Rich Trzupek, March 4, 2011

A little over two years ago, the election of Barack Obama was hailed as a milestone in American history. Obama was our first “post-racial” president – proof that all Americans of every color had gotten beyond pigmentation and were finally focused on policies and principles. We celebrated that moment. After that, the left decided that anybody who objected to the president’s policies was really upset about the color of skin, no matter how articulate their arguments might seem. New evidence suggests that Barack Obama himself, and Attorney General Eric Holder, agree with that assessment.

USA Today writer Kenneth T. Walsh’s recently released book, Family of Freedom: Presidents and African Americans in the White House, is a study of the influence that African Americans have had in the Executive Branch throughout our history. His observations regarding the Obama administration are particularly revealing:

“In May 2010, he (President Obama) told guests at a private White House dinner that race was probably a key component in the rising opposition to his presidency from conservatives, especially right-wing activists in the anti-incumbent “Tea Party” movement that was then surging across the country. Many middle-class and working-class whites felt aggrieved and resentful that the federal government was helping other groups, including bankers, automakers, irresponsible people who had defaulted on their mortgages, and the poor, but wasn’t helping them nearly enough, he said.

    Well, due to the fact that that within the time Obama Arrived at the scene, now we have needed to submit with. Rev Wright's anti-white attitudes and unAmerican feedback.... New black panthers spewing certainly racist messages for all to peer.......and the justice method held again from prosecuting him for doing so. We've noticeable People like Sherrod popping out of the wooden paintings they usually white washed over thier seen racism towards white individuals. No, it's not approximately wealth and who has it, it used to be approximately race. There are alot of irritated black individuals in the market displaying up within the media and they've no correct to be irritated. The black individual in these days has extra possibility and equality than any one ago, and in the event that they have not stepped as much as make whatever of themselves, they've no-one in charge however themselves. NONE of them have been slaves, not one of the white individuals in these days have been slave homeowners, and what well is the civil rights motion if the black group goes to enable those handfuls of mal-contents to behave like a$$es and declare the correct to be simply as racist now as they could were handled again then ? Reverse racism isn't applicable both.
