On Tuesday night, President Barack Obama delivered his farewell address in Chicago. As predicted, his address was little more than an attempt to whitewash the past eight years and get in some parting shots at President-elect Donald Trump and Americans.
“For white Americans, it means acknowledging that the effects of slavery and Jim Crow didn’t suddenly vanish in the ’60s; that when minority groups voice discontent, they’re not just engaging in reverse racism or practicing political correctness; that when they wage peaceful protest, they’re not demanding special treatment, but the equal treatment our Founders promised,” he stated.
Obama has a lot of nerve lecturing Americans about race relations, considering how race relations have fallen apart under his administration. CNN noted that an October 2016 poll found that 54 percent of respondents thought that race relations had gotten worse under Obama.
Ironically, Obama actually seems to think race relations in America are getting better, CBS News reported, which just goes to show how out of touch with middle America the outgoing president really is.
I don’t know what planet Obama has been living on, but it sounds nice there.
Yes, there are racial problems in America, but there are problems on all sides of the issue. What we need is a new leader who will recognize this and won’t use every opportunity to bash white America because of an isolated incident.
