Obama on WIP: My grandmother’s a “typical white person”
If Rev. Wright didn’t do Obama in, this comment should.
“… .. The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any
racial animosity. She doesn’t. But she is a typical white person
who, uh, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know
there’s a reaction that’s been been bred into our experiences that don’t go
away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way and that’s just the nature
of race in our society. We have to break through it. … ..”
– Senator Barack Obama
Can you imagine if Hillary Clinton said someone was a “typical black person?”
Seriously, Barack Obama basically called all white people racist. You know,
because when us typical white folk walk down the street and see an African American
coming our way we run to the other side of the road.
Is this guy kidding? Back in the late 1970s, early 1980s, I lived on 95th and
Columbus in New York City; long before it went chique. I took a subway from 42nd
Street to get home after working on Broadway late at night. I walked home from the subway alone.
I rode with African Americans, walked down the street past midnight in an area
that wasn’t near safe, with African Americans walking beside me and behind me. I’m a whitey white Scots-Irish broad and I was never
afraid of an African American coming towards me, and never once crossed the street.
Mr. Hope, Mr. Uniter has finally revealed himself further. There’s a reason
he didn’t distance himself from Rev. Wright. There’s also a reason that Obama’s team pounced on Ferraro and everyone else making any comment at all. Senator Obama now admits he sees racism whenever a white person is speaking on the subject of the racial divide in this country.
How in the world the Democratic party, represented by Barack Obama as our nominee, thinks he’s going to get blue collar votes by basically calling white people
racist is beyond me. There’s prejudice going round but it isn’t coming from people challenging Senator Obama, who are being pounced on for calling him out.
I know a racist dog whistle when I hear one and this beauty from Obama is it. Racism works both ways.
Brought to you by a “typical white person” who resents being called racist because of the view through Barack Obama’s eyes. Stick a fork in him, baby. If he makes it to the general election, he’s done.
