When Barack Obama asserted – in advance of a jury trial or grand jury investigation, let alone a completed police investigation – that he identified with young Trayvon Martin, the black teenager shot and killed in Florida, it was an extraordinarily reactionary moment with possible ramifications of interference with the justice system.
But it was not surprising.
Since obtaining the presidency, Barack Obama has led a Democratic Party that would be better called The Society for the Preservation of Racism.
Obama has benefited from the specter of racism and would have never climbed so high had he not been at least half black. He’s the first affirmative action president and you can’t blame him for promoting racism. Perpetuating a skewed reality of race relations and discrimination against minorities will allow charlatans like Obama to advance without requiring him to demonstrate any real effort or talent. So we’re stuck with this empty suit till the end of 2012. Will the nation have enough since to give this goof his walking papers?
