When speaking to students at the University of Chicago Law School, Barack Obama said that America’s voting system is “rooted in racism” and that it discourages some Americans from voting. He suggested that we should reduce the polarization in politics to help improve things.
Then, he dropped a bombshell and pointed out how “white folks” are the problem:
“We really are the only advanced democracy on earth that systematically and purposefully makes it really hard for people to vote,” Obama said Thursday when speaking at the University of Chicago School of Law.
“There is no other country on earth that does that. There is a legacy to that that grows directly out of a history in which first propertied men, then white men, then white folks didn’t want women, minorities, to participate in the political process and be able to empower themselves in that fashion. That’s the history. We should be a society in which at this point we should say, yeah, that history is not so good.”
WOW! This from America’s first African-American president, who everyone thought would bring so much “hope and change” to our country. This from a man voters thought would unite this country. For some of us, including myself, we knew this whole “hope and change” thing was nothing more than a front for the real transformation of America. What did you expect from a man who’s middle name is “Hussein”?
The next thing Barack Hussein Obama wants to do, is ensure our country never elects another Republican, let alone a conservative. Of course, if he could have it his way, every American, including those in prison and those who are here illegally would vote.
That would certainly ensure his transformation of America would continue…down the wrong path.
Seems pretty black and white to me.
By the way for a real history lesson, please go back and check which party drafted the Civil Rights Act and which party founded the KKK.
