Obama Handed the Keys to Racism

Dec. 18, 2014

Barack Obama issued fresh race bait Wednesday in an interview he and Michelle granted to People magazine. For Barack, it’s racism when someone threw him the keys to their car. “There’s no black male my age who’s a professional who hasn’t come out of a restaurant and is waiting for their car, and somebody didn’t hand them their car keys,” he said, because, in his eyes, only black men are valets. As Ian Tuttle of National Review points out, it’s not like that stunt wasn’t included in a James Bond film. But Obama had to elevate his story to the status of racial injustice. He continued, “It’s one thing for me to be mistaken for a waiter at a nice gala. It’s another thing for my son to be mistaken for a robber and to be handcuffed or worse, if he happens to be walking down the street and is dressed the way teenagers dress.” That is another very cheap shot at cops nationwide from a guy who happens to be president of the United States, not a valet guy. Next thing you know, he’ll be complaining that he lives in the White House.
