Questions for President Obama

by Jack

Dear Mr. President,

ObamaDowncastAPIn 2014 you sent three White House representatives to express your condolences to the family of Michael Brown, a person you didn’t know.  A person who had just committed a strong arm robbery in a store and subsequently attacked a white police officer trying to arrest him, just before he was shot and killed.

You sent nobody to convey your concerns to the white police officer, Darren Wilson, who was injured and is now receiving constant death threats from the black community. Your actions in this case have made his life very difficult.

Last year 6,329 black people were murdered in the United States.  93% of them were murdered by other blacks.  How many times did you send White House representatives to console their family or attend their funerals or ask your Attorney General to look into their cases?

In the last four years, 205 police officers were shot and killed on duty. How many times did you send White House representatives to their funerals?

Since you have been president there have been three notorious incidents in which the specter of racial profiling was alleged against the police. In each case it appeared that you were critical of the police.  When the investigations were over and the verdict was in, you were wrong each time.

We may be slow to catch on Mr. President, but we finally get it. And it explains why you attended the church run by a black militant who constantly espouses racists views against whites in America.

Your apparent bias keeps being exposed, until only a dunce could miss it. your bias has damaged our race relations and created a strong suspicion among African Americans that fair and equal treatment on many levels for them is not possible. That is not only wrong, it is an insult to our judiciary and the dedicated men and women who serve us in law enforcement. We are not perfect, but this is that sort of gross misrepresentation and exaggeration that can only serve to divide us and keep open old racial wounds.

The end result of your biased agenda can only further distrust, acrimony and violence along a growing racial divide. Many of us had hoped that a black president be a uniting presence and finally put to rest many old race based anxieties, but instead you have contributed to them and made racial tensions worse. In that sense, you’re a great disappointment Mr. President, and if this is the best you can do, then the sooner you leave office the better. You have not been good for this great American melting pot.

    Oops – forgot to mention golf courses . . . . . .

    I agree, well said Jack!

    You just demonstrated that Holders admonition that we are a “nation of cowards” on the topic of race is flat out wrong!

    The problem is that the PC crowd have bullied the American people into silence for fear of being labeled racist. The tactic is beginning to backfire now; people are fed up with having their generosity of spirit trampled upon! They’re fed up unequal treatment and the celebration of thugs and criminals. They’re fed up with blame shifting and excuses.

    The more salient question is this: Do the President and Eric Holder have the courage to lead, to stand up to the race baiters and poverty pimps that push lies, distort the facts, and stir up resentment as a means to their own personal enrichment?

    Unfortunately it looks like these two men are part of the problem.

    A great article in IBD this morning recounts the awful statements Obama made that gave rioters permission and set Ferguson up for mayhem and destruction:

    Obama called anger “an understandable reaction” and warned police not to work “against the community.” This supposed uniter said, “A deep distrust exists between law enforcement and communities of color. Some of this is the result of the legacy of racial discrimination in this country.”

    Calling for “much-needed criminal justice reform,” Obama said, “Communities of color aren’t just making these problems up,” “The law too often feels as if it is being applied in discriminatory fashion” and “These are real issues, and we have to lift them up and not deny them or try to tamp them down.”

    According to the president, “Those who are only interested in focusing on the violence and just want the problem to go away need to recognize that we do have work to do here, and we shouldn’t try to paper it over.”

    We don;t want the problem to “go away.” We want it honestly solved. It won’t be solved until the black community puts some of that pent up energy in addressing the problems within.

    Eric Holder did his part in the enabling game by announcing a race investigation before the facts of the case were known.

      Well said Tina. For the most part what we have is a perception problem within the black community by people who have been feeding them misinformation for decades (democrats). If the facts were accepted for what they are, the black community would not be ignoring the black on black shootings and other crimes, maybe we could make some progress?

    Not to be mistaken for your other Libby, I am Libby G. and y agree with Jack. I do think race relations are worse now than before Obama became President.

    I have noted the unequal treatment of minority applicants, at least in college admissions, has been counterproductive. The students I know don’t want any special treatment. They would rather earn their degree like anyone else. Special consideration due to their minority status takes away from their personal efforts and compromises the value of their degree.

    Best thing I’ve seen addressing Ferguson.
