Obama shows his white side
It seems that Obama has managed to find a way to annoy one of his staunchest supporters. Representative Maxine Waters (D-Calif) said this morning that one particular bit of Obama’s comments to the Congressional Black Caucus “a bit curious,” suggesting that he would never use the same tone or language with other communities.
“I’m not sure exactly who the president was talking to,” the former chair of the CBC said on CBS’ Early Show.
This past Saturday, President Barack Obama was speaking at the Congressional Black Caucus’ annual gala. In speaking about the unemployment problem in the black community, he urged them not to lose hope, saying, “Stop complaining. Stop grumbling. Stop crying. We are going to press on. We’ve got work to do.”
What has our country come to? We can’t even be frank with our own ethnic communities anymore? It seems like the erosion of the right to freedom of speech has reached the tipping point.
