I know this doesn't fit a narrative, but with those credentials anyone (and I mean anyone) could waltz into ANY job in this country.

Obama's Harvard Law Review presidency is exactly what I'm referring to. He was the first "black president" and the information out there clearly affirms that he was in fact put there because of the color of his skin - he was an affirmative action appointee. That's undeniable.



And I don't care what some leftist marxist professor said about the guy - of course he is going to pull that.

indeed.
Right...Because degrees preclude people from treating you in a racist fashion.

Like Dr. King's degrees did for him.

In 1925 Alain Locke ,the first African American Rhodes Scholar wrote.."Fundamentaly for the present the Negro is a radical on race matters and conservative on others, in other words a "forced radical,"
This is why most African Americans with conservative values are Democrats

So yeah...I threw it out there. It stuck by the way. She said nothing wrong in her speech. You folks are just butthurt because in your minds, she's not allowed to discuss racial issues as they've pertained to her.

She's supposed to say "white folks all love you and you'll never face any racism or marginalization because you're black. It'll all be honky dory. You know....Because we don't wanna offend Bluesjuke."



She can discuss race all she wants, her manner was provocative, not healing nor encouraging.

You are offensive as well making wild accusations that are most pathetically baseless.

Correct, she also left a job that paid $250,000 a year before moving to the White House, where is the gratitude for any of that? She has done way better than most Americans ever will, regardless of color.

As one poster said "sour grapes". How about giving a college speech that is uplifting? Concentrating on what she has achieved despite being a minority and a woman?

With all the recent events(ex. Freddie Gray) let's add fuel to the fire, shall we.

It has to be intentional. Keep dividing people, an us vs. them mentality.

Take a look at the speech Robert Kennedy(a Liberal Democrat) gave after announcing to a mostly black crowd after telling them that Martin Luther King was shot and killed that night. He was able to keep calm that night in Indianapolis, because of his words, while other cities had rioting.

Than look at what the Obamas say on race.
