President Obama just embarrassed our country in a huge way last night during his farewell address in Chicago, Illinois. He argued that a “post-racial America was, and is, “unrealistic,” then later stated that maybe in hundreds of years we can change. Mixed messages much?
Obama brought this up in response to his critics that said ‘race relations in America are worse than they have been in decades,’ Obama replied, “Race remains a potent and often divisive force in our society.”
“Now I’ve lived long enough to know that race relations are better than they were ten or twenty or thirty years ago, no matter what some folks say.”
Obama called racism a present threat to U.S. democracy. However, the real threat was standing right before the people of Chicago, Illinois last night.
Obama continued: “There’s a second threat to our democracy, and this one is as old as our nation itself.”
Later he said that the vision of a “post-racial America” after his election as the first (racist) black President of the United States was not realistic, to begin with. I think we can agree with him there! Not in the way Obama thinks, of course, race relations have gotten worse because he’s been stirring up trouble between races for the last eight years.
“After my election, there was talk of a post-racial America,” Obama stated. “And such a vision, however well-intended, was never realistic.” Certainly not Obama, but you never actually had that vision in mind did you? No, I think Obama is pleased with himself, he accomplished exactly what he set out to do….pit Americans against each other. The only thing he didn’t plan on was a man like Trump winning the election.
