Strange… he’s usually so keen on addressing this topic. What changed?
The video, which apparently showed four youths aged 18-24 beating, cutting and laughing at the bound and gagged man, was streamed on Tuesday by one of those arrested.
But, the President – who has a home in the affluent Hyde Park suburb of Chicago – told CBS, this was not a sign of a worsening racial divide.
Obama – the junior senator for Illinois before he became president – said it was just an example of social media revealing problems that have always been there.
Sure, he covers his bases. Obama generically acknowledges the video shows ‘hate’. But notice what he DOESN’T say.
‘Tech lets us see the terrible toll that racism and discrimination and hate takes on families and communities.’
He doesn’t actually mention whether he considers this an EXAMPLE of racism… or a RESULT of it. Because racism is treated as an independent force that can make things happen, rather than a corruption and failure of normal human relations.
That’s a far cry from the very personal response he gave to another racially-charged case. ‘If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.’
He also claims that ‘for the most part, race relations have gotten better’.
Wow. Seriously? Let’s go down a list, shall we?
Besides the #blmKidnapping… we have:
— Fake hate crimes (example: Trump-supporter ‘Islamophobia’)
— The Dallas Police Ambush (where they were PROTECTING BLM marchers!)
One of the suspects in the ambush-style shootings in Dallas that left five police officers dead overnight told a hostage negotiator he was upset about the recent police shootings of two black men and he wanted to kill white people, especially police officers, Dallas Police Chief David Brown said at a news conference this morning.
— Telling whites to get to the back of the #BLM march… even the media!
— Milwaukee Where CNN tried to hide the fact that she called for rioters to target white neighborhoods?
— Colleges prattling on about white privilege?
— Unfounded claims of ‘systemic racism’ in policing?
— Demanding charges be filed in a pending investigation? (And having them all dismissed.)
We could go on..
How EXACTLY has Obama made race relations better?
Just because he had a Beer Summit?
