    His white grandmother told him she had racist thoughts/tendencies and she also uttered some racial epithets once in a while. Obama then called her a "typical white person".

    Edit:
    The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn't. But she is a typical white person who, uh, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know there's a reaction that's been been bred into our experiences that don't go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way and that's just the nature of race in our society. We have to break through it..." - Senator Barack Obama

    You did not read all the supporting factual information that went along with the allegation?

    Maybe you should go back and read it all.

    People should be treated equally and skin color, black, white or orange shouldn't matter.

    For clarification: Do you think people are misreading this person as badly as you are misreadng the Obama comment?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    No, he said his grandmother is a "typical white person" who has prejudices against other races. It was a gross generalization that showed HIS predjudice.
