"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
I think someone would have a much easier time arguing that Rush and the conservative media that is pushing this "the president is racist for talking to black people" meme is playing the race card. Trying to scare white voters into thinking that their tax dollars will be going towards reparations and that white's will be second class citizens.
Mind you, I don't really think any of these people are racist, many of them would gladly get behind a black guy that follows their ideology, that's what I think about most people. But it's fairly obvious that they have no qualms in playing the race card to garner up votes, as I don't think most politicians and pundits would.
Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
Is it safe to say then, the President accepts that he does not represent the entire nation?
He is POSOTUS; President of Some Of The United States.
Geez, I clearly remember him saying "there is not a red America or a Blue America, there is The United States of America."
I am sure it would also apply in this manner: "There is no white America, Red, Yellow, Brown, Olive or Black America, there is The United States of America".
But no. This is our Balkanizer. Batteries not included.
I AM DEPLORABLE.
