Anyone who hasn’t already been convinced that President Obama and his administration love to capitalize off of racial tension as a means to expand the Democratic Party’s voter base will likely change their minds after finding out what Obama was up to, off the books, earlier this month.
It appears that the president met with Ferguson protest leaders where he told them to “stay on course.” This is pretty disturbing for a number of reasons. It seems that Obama might be encouraging these protests against Officer Wilson to continue, many of which have turned into rioting and looting.
Check it out.
From The New York Times:
Some of the national leaders met with President Obama on Nov. 5 for a gathering that included a conversation about Ferguson.
According to the Rev. Al Sharpton, who has appeared frequently in St. Louis with the Brown family and delivered a speech at Mr. Brown’s funeral, Mr. Obama “was concerned about Ferguson staying on course in terms of pursuing what it was that he knew we were advocating. He said he hopes that we’re doing all we can to keep peace.”
Is President Obama really encouraging race hustlers like Al Sharpton to keep stoking the fires in Ferguson? It appears so.
This is not something the president should be doing. If he’s going to weigh in on a subject such as this, he should be spending time calming things down, helping people to see things from a different perspective, and working toward uniting the black and white community in Ferguson instead of actively attempting to widen the gap.
It’s likely that we’ll be seeing the grand jury in the Michael Brown shooting come to a decision this week, which is why it is critical for civil rights leaders to do their best to put out racial fires now before things escalate. Hopefully, justice and common sense will prevail, regardless of the decision, and people will express their thoughts and opinions in a mature manner instead of destroying their community.
