Welcome to Obama’s Post-Racial America, where they only thing that matters is the color of your skin.
Sixty-nine percent of Americans say race relations are generally bad, one of the highest levels of discord since the 1992 riots in Los Angeles during the Rodney King case, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.
The poll, conducted from Friday, the day after the killing of five Dallas police officers, until Tuesday, found that six in 10 Americans say race relations were growing worse, up from 38 percent a year ago.
Obama was supposed to be the realization of Martin Luther King’s dream. He turned out to be King’s nightmare instead.
The martyrs of the Civil Rights movement were people like Medgar Evers, Emmitt Till, and those four little girls in Birmingham. The martyrs of the Black Lives Matter movement are thugs like Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Freddie Gray. Instead of Martin Luther King we now have Deray Mckesson. Instead of Rosa Parks we have Marilyn Mosby. Instead of peaceful marchers being attacked by police we have looting and burning.
To be fair, we can’t blame Obama for everything that has gone wrong. He’s had plenty of help. The Democrat party has been running on racially divisive identity politics for decades now. We have generations of black Americans who have been raised to believe they are being oppressed by white people.
Obama ran a race-based campaign. He was marketed as the fulfillment of MLK’s dream. Any criticism or mockery of him was deemed racist. If you didn’t vote for Obama you were a racist. If you opposed his policies you were a racist.
Four years ago Joe Biden told a predominantly black audience that Republicans would “put y’all back in chains.” What will Hillary be telling them this year?
Will tomorrow’s planned “Day of Rage” be the start of race riots across the country?
