Obama told New Yorker Magazine that some people really don’t like him because he’s black:
NEWSMAX – President Barack Obama says some people “really dislike me” because they don’t like the idea of a black man occupying the Oval Office. But, he admits, that’s not the whole story.
“Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black president,” Obama told The New Yorker in an interview published Sunday.
But that’s not all. He still believes America is racist and it’s up the federal government to make sure everyone is treated fairly:
Obama said in the interview that opposition to large federal powers does not make make one racist, but he said supporters of states’ rights should also acknowledge the history tied to that philosophy, which was key to southern thinking during the Civil War and the civil rights movement.
Conservatives should understand, he said, that his not wanting to leave Medicare in states’ hands “may not simply be because I am this power-hungry guy in Washington who wants to crush states’ rights,” but because he wants to ensure everyone is treated the same.
Sadly this is the prevailing thought in our government. America would revert back to slavery if it weren’t for Obama and his benevolent federal government keeping American on the straight and narrow.
What a pile of crap.
