Obama Surprised by furor over his Racist Comments

On Wednesday Mr. Obama stated in his press meeting that the Cambridge police “acted stupidly” when they arrested his friend Louis Gates Jr.. A reporter asked about the arrest. Obama said he wasn’t there and he didn’t have all the facts. Rather than quitting at that he followed his (now evident) racial bent and made a judgment (without facts) and inferred that the arresting officer was racially motivated. He followed that with more of his usual meanderings intending to prove his case (the case without any facts).

On Thursday Mr. Obama said that:

"I have to say I am surprised by the controversy surrounding my statement," Obama said in an interview with ABC News, "because I think it was a pretty straightforward comment that you probably don't need to handcuff a guy, a middle-aged man who uses a cane, who's in his own home."

Still operating without any facts, Obama is surprised that people would be offended that he rendered a judgment without facts and essentially played the “Race Card”. Doesn’t he know that when you accuse someone of racism, that accusation is racism? To say that a white guy did something only because he was white is Racism. To say that the black guy was arrested by a white man only because the former is white is RACISM. What part of that is hard for you to understand Mr. Obama?
For years many, many non-black people have had the race card played upon them. My wife worked for many years with the public and would often come home saying that someone said, “If I wasn’t black you would do this or that for me.” Of course this hurt her deeply. Her decision was not made upon race it was made upon facts. We struggled with a way to handle people who like to use race as the “reason” when they don’t get what they want. It is a difficult statement to counter without being rude or intolerant. If you respond at all, you risk their entire wrath.

Without the facts Obama judged. To that I say, if that officer wasn’t white you wouldn’t have called him a racist Mr. Obama.

Get it now Mr. Obama? Do you understand why so many are offended by your statement? Do you even care?
