Chris Plante, a former CNN political correspondent and current radio talk show host, spoke to the Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas, and referred to President Obama’s promise of a post-racial presidency as “pure crap.”
Via the Daily Caller:
A Rasmussen poll last week found only 8% of likely voters in America believe President Obama has helped race relations, with 90% saying it is worse or the same as before America voted in the first black President.
Plante said, “Remember all that talk about post racial, post partisan? It was pure crap… a giant lie. What we got was a guy who had the skill set of a community organizer.”
This is, Plante said, the “most racially charged era that we’ve seen perhaps in my lifetime.”
“They are deliberately making matters worse. They are increasing racial tension in the United States over a lie that a racist white cop mercilessly executed an innocent black teen who was just trying to surrender with his hands up. It’s as insidious as anything I have ever seen in American politics.”
Watch the interview on race relations under the Obama regime …
There have certainly been other documented cases of a most-racial Presidency under Barack Obama.
Even prior to the cases in Ferguson and Staten Island, the Obama administration took steps to further the racial divide in other high-profile cases such as the Trayvon Martin case. Obama himself responded to the arrest of an African-American in his own home several years ago by saying the police “acted stupidly” and stated that the U.S. has “a long history…of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.”
Do you agree with Plante? Have race relations become much worse under the first black President?
