Obama Hates Black People

You may recall that, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, it became popular for black Americans to quote a certain rap star and say, “George Bush hates black people.” Because blacks in New Orleans were suffering. But the shoe is really on the other foot.

I don’t understand how black Americans can say with a straight face that Obama is for them, not when you have an article such as the one written by Kevin D. Williamson in the National Review Online. The text of his piece shocked even my jaded eyes.

Williamson proves that point that Obama in general and the Democrats in particular really care very little for black Americans. He says, “Fifty years into the Democrats’ declaration of a war on poverty and President Kennedy’s first executive order for affirmative action, while spending $300 million a year on worthless diversity workshops and singing endless verses of ‘We Shall Overcome,’ after enduring endless posturing from Barack Obama and the moral preening of his admirers, that is what black American families have to show for themselves: an average household net worth of $4,955. The average white household in these United States has a net worth of $110,729. Black Americans’ median net worth is less than 5 percent that of white Americans.”

Read that again and really take it in. We have a large population in this country kept perpetually poor by political design or by choice, and I’m not sure which is worse, or a greater insult to the idea of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. How can you pursue when you barely have enough to survive?

Williamson continues: “Everywhere it has been tried, the Democrats’ dependency agenda has been a social and economic catastrophe for black Americans — and a full-employment program for Democratic apparatchiks. This is not a conspiracy — it’s right out there in the open, every time a Democratic politician knows that he can count on 90 percent of the black vote without lifting a finger, winning the opportunity to add four more years to the 50 years of broken promises Democrats have made to black Americans, who lag their fellow countrymen on practically every social indicator. ‘These Negroes,’ said alleged civil-rights hero Lyndon Baines Johnson, ‘they’re getting pretty uppity these days, and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before: the political pull to back up their uppity-ness. We’ve got to give them a little something — just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference.’ So far, the LBJ plan seems to be working perfectly.”

This is nothing less than an effort on the part of Democrats to keep a class of people so tied to their tethers that they could never break free and discover their own potential. Of course, that assumes black Americans indeed want to do that, and go ahead and call me a racist, but I don’t see a lot of that happening here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I see a lot of the opposite. There are a few that have risen above, but they still cow tow to the left’s party line. I don’t know a single black person that didn’t vote for Obama. “Because it’s time,” they say, whatever that means.

Has there ever a greater example of cutting off your nose to spite your face? I don’t think so. Yet generations of blacks have been convinced that it’s the only way to be taken seriously, and I shudder to think what would happen if they suddenly switched sides and let the Republicans have a go. Probably not much, thanks to wussies like Boehner, McCain, Rubio, et al. One can hope that should this country have a chance to return to real economic prosperity that the blacks would not only take advantage, but prosper with the rest of us. That’s what the United States is all about, everybody getting a shot at the gold. Instead we have a class of people who think that they’re only value is as a victim, waiting for a hand out, it’s everybody else’s fault, etc., etc., and George Bush hates black people.

If Obama cared so much about blacks, the Washington Post would not report that black unemployment is sky high. Quote: “….the rate for adult black men, those 20 years and older, jumped to 14 percent last month. That’s up from 13.5 percent in August and only slightly below year-ago levels. It also contrasts with 6.1 percent unemployment for white men in that same age group.”

Fourteen percent. That’s a disgrace. This is not the America I want. This is not the America we could have. Instead of trying to raise a segment of the population out of the gutter, we give them free cell phones and food stamps.

Because it’s time.

As long as we have a class of perpetual victims, this is the America we get. Fifty years and counting. I don’t see it turning around.

  1. I truly appreciate these kinds of articles, Brian! I look with great admiration to men like Dr. Carson and many others who seem to be the exception rather than the rule. I intensely miss the segment of our society that COULD have been prospering all this time – who could have been motivated, critical thinkers instead of victims!

    The Democrat party is consummately evil at its core – always has been and always will be. That so many uninformed members of the Dem party are imbibed with the progressive lies that they HATE you for telling them the truth – the SELF-EVIDENT Truth – is further proof of that Evil! One can say their agenda does not work but that is with the assumption their agenda is to work for the good of this Nation. Their agenda DOES work if you shed the light of the truth on just what that agenda is – our destruction.

    We need all of our citizens – of every color, creed, and culture – to be free and prosperous! Instead of this racial tension carried like a banner onto a “battlefield” by the very people who claim to care about the “less fortunate”, we need all of us to truly understand that WE as a “One People” have the power and the opportunity to be the best that we can be for ourselves, for our Nation and for ALL of mankind! We do not NEED Government for that! We need Citizens who love this country!

    1. Right you are, Derrell. A thought I had this morning, and one I wish I had included in the column, concerns “the rest of us.” If the left has succeeded in subjugating black Americans, and I don’t think there’s any other word for it, what plans do they have for the rest of us? This is where the “99%” and other economic and class divisions come into play. That’s how they’re trying to cut down the rest and create more victims. The Democrats are truly a clear and present danger.

      1. I agree Brian; good point. According to them we are NOT even a race (what? Just the “other” humans?). What do they plan to do with us? Is that what the FEMA camps are for? It is just as racist to put one race below another, as it is to elevate one race over another. It’s the same thing. Affirmative Action was the most Racist thing this Government EVER did! The Democrats are the racists and they are insidiously evil about it because they act like they are NOT! I have friends of all kinds of colors. They are my friends because I like them as people!

        Have you noticed how many more black actors are used in TV Commercials? Nothing wrong with that except the TIMING (and the obvious subliminal message)!
