Obama Is Asked About RACISM During Presidency – Responds With Candid Remark About White People

Race has been an extremely sensitive subject during the last 8 years. Despite having elected a black President, somehow white people are still racists.

When President Obama was asked about racism during his time in office, he could have taken the opportunity to call for more unity, an end to the racial division, or even admit that race relations aren’t anywhere close to where they need to be in order for everyone in America to feel accepted.

Of course he did none of that.


Instead, Obama took a shot at white people living in the south.

In an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria, Obama made it clear how he feels about southern whites, by pretending to know how they feel about him.

“Are there folks whose primary concern about me has been that I seem foreign — the other? Are those who champion the birther movement feeding off of bias? Absolutely,” Obama said.

Zakaria reported that Obama admitted he “doesn’t see racism in mainstream opposition to him, but he does see it on the fringes.”

But Obama also told CNN, “I think there’s a reason attitudes about my presidency among whites in northern states are very different from whites in southern states.”

Did he really just presume that white people living in southern states are more racist than those living in northern states?

Legitimate racism does exist and it is a serious problem. However, just because someone is opposed to your Presidency doesn’t make them a racist.

Of course, race and the issues surrounding it will be in the forefront of America’s social problems for years after Obama leaves office, but the least he can do is stop fueling the fire!
