Every time a cop shoots a black kid, Obama calls a press conference within hours to cry racism. This ritual of his has ignited numerous race riots around the country.
But now that the situation is reversed — four black thugs viciously attacked a white disabled Trump supporter in Chicago — Obama doesn’t think race plays a role at all.
The Hill reported, President Obama has called the beating of a mentally disabled man broadcast on Facebook Live “despicable,” but says the incident is not a sign racial tensions are worsening. Obama said the incident involving four black suspects and a white victim is an example of how racial strife is more visible in the digital age, but said the overall path of race relations in the U.S. is “very positive.”
“In part because we see visuals of racial tensions, violence and so forth because of smartphones and the internet … what we have seen as surfacing, I think, are a lot of problems that have been there a long time,” Obama said in an interview with a CBS affiliate in Chicago.
In the video, which showed a group of people gagging and attacking a white, disabled suburban Chicago teen, chants of “f— Donald Trump” and “f— white people” could be heard. Obama expressed alarm about the attack, which he referred to in a separate interview with Chicago’s WLS as an apparent “horrific hate crime.”But the president said he remains hopeful about the future.
“I take these things very seriously,” he told WBBM. “The good news is that the next generation that’s coming behind us … have smarter, better, more thoughtful attitudes about race.”
Obama is despicable and has done nothing for race relations. What are your thoughts? Sound off in the comments section below!
