Obama: Race Relations in US Have Improved

 

From Fox News:

Obama- pinnochio nose

President Obama says that race relations in the U.S. have improved during his six years in the White House, amid recent racial tensions sparked by the deaths of two black males during separate police encounters.

“I actually think that it’s probably in its day-to-day interactions less racially divided,” said the president, according to excerpts of an interview with National Public Radio to be aired starting Monday.

Obama also told the radio network that Republicans controlling both chambers of Congress when members return next week means they can no longer blame the gridlock on him and fellow Democrats who formally controlled the Senate.

“Now you’ve got Republicans in a position where it’s not enough for them simply to grind the wheels of Congress to a halt and then blame me,” he said.

Obama suggested in the aftermath of the shooting of Michael Brown, that race relations in America have improved in the past 40 or 50 years.

“We have made enormous progress in race relations over the course of the last several decades,” Obama said in late November after a grand jury decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson. “I have witnessed that in my own life and to deny that progress, I think, is to deny America’s capacity for change.

Obama also told NPR, in the year-end interview with “Morning Edition” host Steve Inskeep, that “low morale around race relations in the U.S. is exaggerated by the national conversation about the recent violence and not an accurate reflection of the state of affairs around the country.”

The death of Brown and Eric Garner in July has sparked widespread protests and concerns about how police officers interact with members of black communities across the country.

The president spoke on camera in the Oval Office just before he left Washington with his family for a two-week vacation in Hawaii. He also discussed his recent executive actions on immigration and Cuba, foreign policy, health care and his relationship with Congress, according to NPR.

After witnessing the events unfold in Ferguson and New York City, one would have to be certifiably insane to believe such an outrageous statement. He’s saying “low morale around race relations..is exaggerated” in an attempt to steer the thinking in that direction. While this is a completely false statement, it won’t stop the lefty media of repeating until it becomes their new truth.

Race relations were greatly improved until he and Holder hit the scene and set us back 60 years. They’ve created a mess that will take years to clean up and he’s already blaming a new Congress who hasn’t even clocked in yet.

Just add this big fat whopper of a lie to the infinitely long list of lies he’s told on a near daily basis.

    I thought surely he was talking about NASCAR.

    • Kathy says:

      Perhaps that’s what he meant, because it’s the only place where relations are okay right now.

        But Kathy. You know all the NASCAR drivers are card carrying KKK, the pit crews are white supremest and the bleachers are filled with white cracker-ass racist homophobic honkeys…
        And they’d all push grandma into the alligator pit, being there’s no cliffs around while clinging to their guns and religions….

    Like everything that spews from his oral sewer… it’s the opposite that is the truth.

    The asshat, and his minions, have set back race-relations decades. It started early in ’09 when Holder was told NOT to prosecute the New Black Panthers for voter intimidation in Philly. Then on to the bullshit with his buddy Skip Gates in Cambridge. Then Holder spewed hs “coward” speech accusing everyone of racism. There are plenty more examples.

    As a result, and at no time in my adult life, have I seen such rancor coming from blacks. At the same time, white folks are getting edgy wondering WTF.

    Blacks have been given every opportunity to elevate themselves in the last 50 years and given a “special class” status yet they have retreated backwards despite $14 trillion and a mountain of protective laws. I blame black leaders, the lefty media, and mostly political correctness for it.

    Any other group of minorities would have accelerated exponentially yet blacks have receded. It sure as hell isn’t whitey’s fault.

    For the record, over 5,000 blacks have been shot by other blacks in 2014. If black lives mattered this would be front page news. Instead Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown have been elevated to saintly status by blacks and the media for the purpose of creating a social wedge because the left has nothing else to sell since everything else they have touched has turned to shit.

    This is a dangerous game the left is playing.

    • Kathy says:

      Agreed, Hardnox and you nailed part of the problem when you said ‘blacks have been given..’. They were ‘given’ the opportunities instead of having to earn them, and when you start giving things to people they only expect more free stuff and more of that special treatment.

      Now they are receiving such special treatment as to be free from punishment for destroying property. Their attitude is being endorsed by our federal government and going unchallenged.

      We’re on an uncharted path here like we’ve never seen before, especially when you throw international concerns into the mix.

    I have to fully agree with Hardnox. And he has recently said that he would be increasingly using his veto powers,,, And if so, Politics will be getting VERY interesting very shortly. But thank God we won’t have hairy reed leading the Senate~!

    • Grouchy says:

      Here is an article from “Freedom Outpost” on Obominations threat to use the “Veto Pen”

      • captbogus2 says:

        I’m not so sure his VETO wouldn’t be over ridden. The Democrats in the Senate have seen 2010 and 2014 and know where the public mood is. There are also those from red states who would probably vote to override just to hold on to their seats…

        • Grouchy says:

          I hope and pray you’re right, Capt. But no matter how it goes down, Zero will HAVE to show his true colors,,, “Cry Havoc, and loose the dogs of Chaos~!” – paraphrased.

    • Kathy says:

      Good points, Grouchy, but from the looks of things, he won’t have to trouble himself with using the veto. Verbally, he’s already instilled the attitude of destruction & murder in many of the blacks and left unchecked we’re about to see devastation like we’ve never seen before.

      Basically, he lit the fuse and went on vacation…all he’s doing now is waiting for us to self-destruct.

    What’s true is not important. What is important is what is said and how often it is said (and reported)
