The Race about Race

Barack Obama’s website takes issue with the Fox and Friends morning show and the fact that they spent a great deal of time discussing the use of the phrase “typical white person” which Obama used to describe his grandmother. Chris Wallace was on air to promote his Sunday show and took the time to say he disagreed with the attention that Fox and Friends had shown with regard to this one item. The campaign wrote on its site:

We appreciate Chris Wallace for doing his job as a tough but fair journalist on a network that has been deeply irresponsible over the last week in its unrelenting and sensationalistic coverage of Senator Obama.

Senator Obama gave the speech he did on Tuesday because he believes that Americans are ready for a thoughtful, mature discussion about race, and are hungry to move past media-generated controversies that distract from the struggles they face in their everyday lives.

If Fox News wants to play clips of the same offensive sound bites every day from now until November, that’s their right, but that type of coverage does a disservice to their viewers and to a nation that is facing serious challenges that merit thoughtful and honest reporting.

As I stated before, Obama has a lot of issues with Fox News but when the story about Pastor Wright was in full swing Obama went on Fox to discuss the issue. He knows that he will need white voters to win the general election and some of them will have to be conservatives, the audience that Fox has. So Obama had no problem with using Fox to his advantage. Now that the network airs Obama’s statements and discusses them, he again has issues with the network.

There is nothing wrong with discussing what Obama said. He made a racist remark about white people whether he intended to or not. Many white people have lost jobs and careers because of a statement that was not intended to be racist but was perceived that way. Race hustlers like Jackson and Sharpton see to it that the black sensitivities are known to all even when they are promoting lies to advance their agendas.

Suppose for a moment if someone had asked Hillary Clinton what she thought about Pastor Wright’s statements and she replied with; “well, he is a typical black guy so he is going to feel that way.”

Anyone who thinks that a statement like that would go unchallenged is living in a fantasy world. The race baiters would be screaming bloody murder and demanding that Hillary apologize and abandon her presidential aspirations. Obama makes a racist statement, intended or not, and then cries foul when he is taken to task for it. To Obama this is a media generated controversy. The media did not tell Wright what to say and the media did not make a typical white (or black) remark. Wright and Obama are the ones who are solely responsible for the statements and the controversy associated with them. Obama can try to deflect the blame but the blame for what he said rests on his shoulders.

    //To Obama this is a media generated controversy.// Exactly, BD — and he’s not the only one to live in a state of denial for issues that he alone created. If anything, the media (except us) are giving Obama a pass.

    Thinking about it, Obama may be the first president ever elected by the Press.

  13. The ‘Typical Black Man’.

    The ‘typical black man’, in my experiences, is a hard-working, Church-going, God-fearing, fun-loving, family-centered, gracious man. Those are the men I have known. I could not, nor would I, try to define the behavior and thoughts of a whole race. Neither should anyone else try to define anyone by their race. Here in my side of reality, we call that prejudiced …

    Obama is your Typical Black person a Liar as he did on fox news then 2 days later changed the story and said he was at the church. You see we can show and tell all about a black person and nothing is said or done compared to a white or any other race for that matter. They can call us Crackers, whitey, Rich Whitey, or your typical white person but no outrage.
    You have the so Called Civil rights groups like NAACP, BLACK PANTHERS etc…These single race groups are breeding grounds for racism as it clearly shows. How come the President for the black panthers can and has said racist comments about whites and is free to? Why is that? Then last year some Dr. or Rev. was on CNN saying we need to terminate all the whites from the earth. What’s up with that? It is all BS.
