The Obama Legacy Continues...
By Raymond Shipley
According to Vanity Fair, Obama is likely to continue his lifelong work of trying to make the world a better place after he leaves the office of POTUS.
"Having had this office has given me this incredible perch from which to see how the world works. The power of the office is unique and it is a humbling privilege. With that power, however, also comes a whole host of institutional constraints. There are things I cannot say...There are institutional obligations I have to carry out that are important for a president of the United States to carry out, but may not always align with what I think would move the ball down the field on the issues that I care most deeply about," said Obama.
This may come as a surprise to those not impressed by Obama's track record. Many would argue, convincingly, that Barrack's two White House terms were filled with an ideological agenda that does not align with the heart of the USA and her citizens, most notably the issue of pushing the ever widening divide of the races.
Having written a book specifically about race relations, in which he not only acknowledges races are different and will always remain so, but also that the black race is the superior race, it can be reasonably assumed that without the proverbial "institutional restraints" Obama will become even more of a radical black racist than he already is.
"The emotions between the races could never be pure; even love was tarnished by the desire to find in the other some element that was missing in ourselves. Whether we sought out our demons of salvation, the other race would always remain just that: menacing, alien, and apart," he wrote in Dreams From My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance.
Alluding to delusions of grandeur he also wrote, "To be black was to be the beneficiary of a great inheritance, a special destiny, glorious burdens that only we were strong enough to bear."
Moreover, after Trayvon Martin was justifiably shot and killed in self defense, he incited racial tensions by preemptively passing judgement, and saying Martin looked like he could be his own son. Taking an interest in the case based solely on race, not facts, he stated "we need to spend some time in thinking about how do we bolster and reinforce our African American boys." Clearly, race was, is and will likely remain Obama's focus, and his legacy will be his overt, black racism.
Many black activists have been renowned for their desire of equal treatment regardless of race. Martin Luther King Jr. famously stated "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character." But Obama is no MLK, and has no desire for anyone to be judged by character. Equality isn't his agenda, and never was. Apparently, come 2017 the world will hear more of the real agenda, in case anyone was still a bit unclear.
This author may not be invited to the White House to discuss race relations as Black Lives Matter has, but no laws have been broken in the writing of this piece, and for that my conscience is clear.
