|Putting the "coarse" in "discourse."|
Unsurprisingly, the wide-ranging and totally obsequious interview ranged into matters of racism in America, about which the president said "we are not cured of it. And it's not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public."
Which Hope n' Change completely agrees with! We think racism also encompasses things like keeping black kids in horrible schools by preventing school choice, the overall "soft bigotry of low expectations" which holds blacks to lower standards than other racial groups, and turning your back on the insane murder rate of inner city black Americans just because the murderers also tend to be black.
But just how bad is racism in America today? According to Obama, "the legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination in almost every institution of our lives—that casts a long shadow, and that’s still part of our DNA that’s passed on."
Really, Barry? Almost every institution in America is racist, and racism - rather than apple pie - is what's baked into our national DNA?
Frankly, it's hard for us to imagine a more divisive, America-hating, race-baiting lie coming out of the mouth of any politician - let alone a black man who has inexplicably been elected to the presidency twice by voters of all races.
That's a talking point that we'd like to discuss further with the president in person, and we're willing to create our own delightfully edgy podcast if that's what it takes to finally get him to have an honest conversation.
So, Mr. Obama, have your people call my people and we'll set up a recording date for the premiere episode of "Back Up And Say That Again, Asshole."
