Obama has said something that makes it sound like he does not care about white kids. Could it be? While he was delivering a speech on Saturday, at a University that is historically a black college in Washington D.C., the President said something that really didn’t sit well with the young white students there…
From the Conservative Tribune:
“Be confident in your heritage,” he said, according to a transcript provided by The Weekly Standard.
He added, “Be confident in your blackness.”
First, why are there no historically white colleges? Perhaps because such institutions might be construed as racist? Second, how do you suppose liberals would have reacted had former President George W. Bush said something similar to white students during his tenure?
Look, Obama probably said what he said with good intentions, i.e., he wanted to encourage students at Howard University to be comfortable in their own skin. But he could have said it in a much more eloquent and less divisive way.
To make matters worse, the president also used his speech to preach the virtues of victimhood.
“We can’t walk by a homeless man without asking why a society as wealthy as ours allows that state of affairs to occur,” he said. “We can’t just lock up a low-level dealer without asking why this boy, barely out of childhood, felt he had no other options.”
But what about personal responsibility? Obama spoke as if the circumstances faced by those who are homeless or deal drugs are of everyone else’s making, as if they themselves did not make the decisions to eschew studying and working hard to get high, party hardy or whatever.
‘People who have been successful and don’t think they were lucky’ very interesting comment… he is telling them to be believe they can do anything, then turns around and says success isn’t from hard work, it’s good luck. Classic Obama crap…
