Welcome to Obama’s “post racial America” where white police officers are presumed to have ‘acted stupidly’, a grandmother is a ‘typical white woman’ and ‘you lie’ cannot possibly be in reference to an actual lie but the color of the liar’s skin.
How did this have ANYTHING to do with race? ANYTHING!
“As African-American newspaper publishers we stand in solidarity with the NAACP and fully support the economic boycott of South Carolina,” NNPA Chairman Danny J. Bakewell Sr. said. “Rep. Wilson’s remarks were racist, disrespectful, and a disingenuous violation — not only of President Obama — but to the institution of the presidency and only solidified our position and the importance in not spending black dollars where black people are not respected.
How cheap must be to those who use race for political purposes the real suffering caused by racism.
For the record, Obama’s statement was a lie. HB3200 does not expressly prohibit offering health care services to illegal aliens and provides no method for screening. Therefore, if the legislation does not explicitly prohibit an activity or provides no means to enforce the prohibition, it implicitly allows it.
