Obama like I've never seen him- SMH - October 3, 2012, 08:01 AM




This is totally different than the Obama I've ever seen. Honestly kind of shocked me... If it's a repost, I searched for it and didn't find it.


In a video obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama tells an audience of black ministers, including the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, that the U.S. government shortchanged Hurricane Katrina victims because of racism.

“The people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much!” Obama shouts in the video, which was shot in June of 2007 at Hampton University in Virginia. By contrast, survivors of Sept. 11 and Hurricane Andrew received generous amounts of aid, Obama explains. The reason? Unlike residents of majority-black New Orleans, the federal government considers those victims “part of the American family.”

The racially charged and at times angry speech undermines Obama’s carefully-crafted image as a leader eager to build bridges between ethnic groups. For nearly 40 minutes, using an accent he almost never adopts in public, Obama describes a racist, zero-sum society, in which the white majority profits by exploiting black America. The mostly black audience shouts in agreement. The effect is closer to an Al Sharpton rally than a conventional campaign event.

Its not a repost but it is being downplayed by the media as out old and outdated.

I doubt if Mitt Romney had mad racial accusations years ago if it would still be as irrelevant. I mean they did try to drum up the idea that he was a gay basher from his teenage years.

Don't forget like Fitz says, its only racist if you are not a liberal.

Nevermind the fact that his statement in this speech are completely wrong. New Orleans was issued a ton of money that was not designated to the same 1:10 match in the Stafford Act.

Pretty sure folks displaced like 9/11 aren't still living in FEMA trailers in Texas.

This guy's a fucking snake. I'm no romney fan either, but are people fuckin blind? This dude is ridiculous.

Agree with stillie. Anyone who thinks Romney will win is fucking delusional.

My hope is that another four years of Obummer will force the GOP to run a non douchebag next time....

Instead of this fucking wishy washy, RINO cocksucker

Right? Which is the real Obama? He didn't talk like that during his senate race debates with Alan Keyes either.

Go to 1:52 to skip Keyes and hear Obama.

George Bush doesn't like black people, neither does the U.S. government. Don't see what the problem is.

Oh and Fitz doesn't like black people either

Just took a listen. Was there a second part to this video I missed? I didn't hear anything which smacked of racism. It seems like a reach to me by someone with an agenda.

The Stafford / Recovery Act 10% matching funds provision was not waived for New Orleans, yet it was waived for NYC and FL. What exactly is racist about that? He didn't mention anything about ethnicity.

Investing and opening minority-owned small businesses in [our] community has always been a hallmark statement and achievement for every ethnicity - especially minorities.
The Irish did it, the Italians did it, the Jewish did, the Asians did it with amazing aplomb. It's the foothold of capitalism and gaining economic strength and the American way. Build roots in your community, keep the money circulating in the community, and the community will strengthen and grow. Sounds like good policy to me.

But I guess when a black man says it before a black audience, in this author's mind this is a racist statement. Wait, I thought this guy was anti-business anyway.

Federal transportation infrastructure dollars are needed in the highest need communities where there are large pockets of available labor but are underserved and cut off from the major economic and commerce conduits, instead of new highways in the suburbs?

That's a racist statement? Logic is now a racist statement? WTF?

Ohhh...I get it the author is implying that black people do not live in the suburbs, and white people do not live in 'high needs' communities. Or high needs communities have only black people with bad roads and public infrastructure. That's probably the most dunce laden implication I've read this month because I can drive 1 hour outside of DC and be in West Virgina or Southern MD and they are high needs.

So, again, whatever this was supposed to be it was a poor example. Unless there was a second part of this video that did not load on my browser and I missed something, I think the author of this article may want consider why he's spinning a racist slant on some very simple statements.

Sidenote: Big scary secret I'll let you guys who aren't black in on. Now don't tell anyone - they may kick me out the club and pull my ghetto card.

<OK - no one is looking>

Shhhhhhhh.... listen.... most African Americans who weren't raised exclusively in "white" communities and generally go on to achieve higher education levels will develop two voices, and we flip back and forth between them depending on the setting and audience.

We'll have an inside our peer group voice and an outside our peer group voice - it includes everything from affect, to tenor, to accent, pronunciation, and even what words you use.

Now here's one of those cultural tricky things. As a minority, will be expected to know when to use which voice by your peers.

Speaking with your 'outside voice' when you're 'inside the circle' may even seen as offensive by some. As if you're putting on airs or trying to talk down to them. It's the secret handshake or the bro card check if you will, and if you do it wrong or don't sound authentic if you try to do it, you'll get the side eye. <*cough: Michael Steele*>

You may even get a little ribbing from your friends ... something like, "Hey bruh, why you still using your outside voice."

Kinda like the "shared heritage" comment that everyone is crying racist over with respect to Romney?

C'mon Heist, didn't you see the part where he waved his hand around? That clearly says "Death to Whitey!"....even though his mother, who was most likely the closest and dearest person to him ever in this world, was white.
