Barack Obama tries to explain that ‘good people’ still hold racial stereotypes

He said what?

Barack Obama suggested Thursday the “typical white person” – much like his grandma – fears black men on the street, prompting a quick backpedal from his aides, who conceded the senator’s words may give the wrong impression.

During an interview on a Philadelphia radio station, Obama was asked about his candid remarks about his white maternal grandmother during an address on race relations Tuesday. In that speech, he said his grandmother confessed “her fear of black men who passed her by on the street.”

“The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t,” Obama told WIP Sports Radio.

“But she is a typical white person who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know, there’s a reaction that’s 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.”

In the speech, he sought to calm the fury surrounding the controversial remarks of his former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, saying he could no more disown Wright than he could his grandmother, who helped raise him.

Barack Obama tries to explain that ‘good people’ still hold racial stereotypes

To a certain degree, Barack Hussein Obama is correct in his statement, ‘good people still hold racial stereotypes’, good people DO still hold certain racial stereotypes, I’m one of them, and yes, I do have some racism in me, I don’t deny it, and I can’t think of anyone I know, of ANY race, that doesn’t hold at least some kind of stereotypical feelings regarding race and racial bias.

But I don’t blatantly flaunt my feelings on the issue, I don’t denigrate an entire race, or races, simply because of the actions of a few individuals that attempt to sway the opinion of the world as they embrace their racism like a shield.What Barack Hussein Obama fails to say here is that good people don’t spend 20 years of their lives following and supporting these types of individuals, good people stand up for what is right and speak out against the type of blatant racist that he, Obama, has chosen as a pastor and spiritual advisor, and has selected to be his minister for the last 20 years.

Barack Hussein Obama is doing everything possible to justify the remarks of his Rev. Wright and he just can’t get the job done, simply because there is NO justification to be had, replace a few words of Wrights sermon in question and insert the words BLACK, BLACK AMERICA and Goddamn BLACK AMERICA and you’d be listening to a speech by a white supremacist, skinhead or a Klan leader.

You know the ones I refer to, and it is a certainty that if ANY white person made such statements, the entire black community would be calling for his head to be removed, much as Obama himself called for the removal of Don Imus after the nappy headed ho”s comments, ABC News: Obama: Fire Imus

And even now Obama refuses to condemn his preacher for making remarks that were much worse.

I submit to you that Barack Hussein Obama is not only a racist and a racist supporter, but a hypocrite as well, and he has NO business leading this nation as president, he is NOT the kind of person the USA needs in that position.
