    2. This President is predicting violence if the economy doesn't improve, yet he wants to restrict your access to guns and ammunition.

    3. This President loves to pit those who are successful and acquire the fruits of their success against those who are less successful in life. He loves to portray those with success and wealth as being undeserving of that success and wealth and those who are less successful as being deserving of their share of the successful person's wealth. Is it any wonder that some may feel the President is condoning taking from the successful and wealthy, even if it takes violence?

    The break down of the African American Family and the failure of inner City schools and neighborhoods isn't because of some great White Racist in the sky or anywhere else, it's specifically due to the choices the people in those communities make.

    Obama pushing the manufactured narrative of " the man keeping a brotha down " is one of the more irresponsible things this President has done.

    He really selling African Americans short.

    And please show us statistics that indicate white Americans attack blacks, hispanics, and others when the economy isn't strong? I'd love to see the source of your conjecture.

    Or perhaps you think racists are more rational than that?
    You don't see a problem with your President, in talking about "economic hardships" suggesting that people will blame those economic hardships on race and so exacerbate racial tensions. Remarkable.

    What do you think the President is suggesting here? What economic policies has the President proposed to address or to lessen "racial tensions"?

    I can name a couple of the President's policies that have exacerbated racial tensions - his constant drum beat that the rich should pay more and the less fortunate should benefit from the rich paying more - and, secondly, his push for immigration reform that gives illegals, mostly latino, legal access to the job market while working towards citizenship.

    In the first case, the President is setting in the minds of the less fortunate that taking from the rich is acceptible - hell, if the President says we should take more from the rich, why not eliminate the middle man and simply steal from the rich. In the second case, the President is giving illegal latino immigrants a hand up to directly take jobs away from African Americans who have the largest percentage of the unemployment rate as it is, especially young black youth, and the President has done dick-all to address the African American unemployment.

    Now, let's hear your example of public policy that Obama has championed to ease racial tension and support minorities. You'll have trouble, because part of Obama's political strategy is to exploit racial and class tensions.

    Re: Did obama just blame the economy on race

    on another fourm this morning I was talking to a guy about race, I dont remember the exact words but the quote did not say anything at all about race to me, nothing. I mentioned that to him and he said. "I can read between the lines." Maybe everyone just has hyperactive imaginations.

    "Racial tensions won't get better; they may get worse, because people will feel as if they've got to compete with some other group to get scraps from a shrinking pot" if individuals do not see a stable fiscal future, Obama said.
    ---

    Quote is from CNN story titled Obama won't twiddle thumbs waiting for GOP or something like it. I can't cut a link and quote on phone sorry...

    Here
    Obama: I won’t ‘twiddle my thumbs’ waiting for GOP – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs
    He's right...that's the whole root of racism and bigotry. It's always some poor schmuck with nothing hating and wanting to exclude some other poor schmuck from competing for that nothing.

    There's a reason that every group targeted for racism has turned on the new group that has come into this country. It's competition.

    Edit: that might be the problem between Obama and a lot of Americans. He might treat Americans as more intelligent than they are.

    Always searching for an outrage. And they say the left is emotional.

    Well, if Obama is worried about jobs, as reported in the article, he should look in the mirror - he's the main culprit in the jobless "recovery". He's been focusing on jobs like a laser for so long he's burned a hole through any stock in truth he ever had.
