While President Obama was touting his “Beer Summit”, Sgt. Leon Lashley of the Cambridge, MA Police Dept. penned a letter to Obama and Prof. Henry Louis Gates. He asked his friend and colleague, Sgt. Jimmy Crowely to personally deliver the letter for him at the White House Happy Hour. If ever there was a teaching moment on race relations in our nation, it was provided by Sgt. Lashley. Everyone should pay attention to his words.
A new video has surfaced of Henry Louis Gates ranting against whitey. Just as with Jeremiah Wright, this friend of Obama has some troubling views on race relations. Far from the color blind society that Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. envisioned, Prof. Gates’ vision of America promotes division and animosity. The very people he claims to be fighting for are ultimately the ones most harmed by his radical views and opinions. Also present with Gates at this appearance, Cornell West another well known promoter of racial division and co-author of two books with Gates.
Barbara Boxer takes a much deserved beat-down from Harry Alford, chair of the National Black Chamber of Commerce. Boxer, an out of touch elitist that is prone to foot in mouth syndrome, attempts to marginalize Mr. Alford’s testimony before her committee by trooting out quotes from the NAACP and 100 Black Men organizations. Mr. Alford left no doubt as to his view of the insulting and condescending nature of Boxer’s remarks.
Update I: Interview With Harry Alford
Update II: A Second Interview With Harry Alford
While Barack Obama has been linked closely to some big time racists, (Rev. Wright, Louis Farrakhan, Dorothy Tillman, Cornel West), could it be that despite all his public rhetoric to the contrary, he is a racist?
Powerline summarizes the latest Stanley Kurtz article, Write 101. The premise of the Kurtz piece is that while serving on the board of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) with terrorist turned radical south side socialite, Willim Ayres, Obama funded extremist Afrocentrists who shared Rev. Wright’s anti-Americanism.
Kurtz found, among other things, that CAC funded teacher training programs based on the curriculum of the South Shore African Village Collaborative (SSAVC). Kurtz explains that the mission of SSAVC is to provide “a social and cultural ‘inoculation’ process that facilitates healthy, African-centered development among African American youth and protects them against the ravages of a racist, sexist, capitalist, and oppressive society.”In 1995, the year Obama assumed control of CAC, he publicly rejected “the unrealistic politics of integrationist assimilation,”thereby embracing the Afrocentirc educational philosophy of the SVACC, Wright, and Ayers. And according to Kurtz, it is clear from the documents that Obama reviewed and commented on proposals to fund the training programs of SVACC, including the African rites of passage based programs. As one would hope,Obama encountered resistance from his own board to attempting to improve the education of African-Americans by orienting them away from “American definitions of achievement and success.”But he managed to keep the money flowing.
We’ve noted in the past that CAC’s own evaluators found that Annenberg-aided schools showed no improvement in achievement scores. The miracle is that scores did not decline.
In what I believe was his only stint running anything (other than the Harvard Law Review), Barack Obama wasted more than $100 million that could have been used to improve the education of disadvantaged students. And he did so in order to advance an extremist, anti-American agenda. The people of Chicago can only wish that Bill Ayers had just been somebody who lived in Obama’s neighborhood and that Jeremiah Wright was just an eccentric uncle. Here is a link to Powerline.
Obama needs to be held accountable to the American voters whose support he seeks to send him to the White House. The mainstream media needs to pursue the truth about this Manchurian Candidate. Unfortunately, it is doubtful either will happen.
“I cannot honestly say, however, that the voice in this book is not mine-that I would tell the story differently today than I did ten years ago…” –
Preface to the 2004 edition of his book “Dreams From My Father”
While the mainstream media goes out of its way in an attempt to create racial overtones in the McCain campaign, where none exists, they have chosen to ignore the words of their annointed candidate. It seems that the Obamessiah has some problems with whitey.
Dan Caplis reports on Barack Obama’s negative racial views, and other important revelations about Obama. This report is even more revealing than the Jeremiah Wright tapes, because it is based on Barack Obama’s own words.
Some will certainly try to claim that Senator Obama really doesn’t believe the things he said in his book, however, it is fair to assume that Barack Obama believes what he wrote. He was a 33 year old lawyer when the book was published, but Obama reaffirmed his writings in a preface to the 2004 edition.
Obama talks about white people:
“That’s just how white folks will do you. It wasn’t merely the cruelty involved; I was learning that black people could be mean and then some.It was a particular brand of arrogance, an obtuseness in otherwise sane people that brought forth our bitter laughter. It was as if whites didn’t know that they were being cruel in the first place. Or at least thought you deserving of their scorn.” Pg 80
And, Barack Obama also said white people have demons:
“So I read the book to help me understand what makes white people so afraid. Their demons. The way ideas get twisted around. It helps me understand how people learn to hate.” Pg 103
Barack Obama also said that,
“Black Nationalism- “a steady attack on the white race”-is justified if it can deliver results.” Pgs 198-201
