Obama gave a speech on economics at a high school in Indiana and made an ironically racist pronouncement (ironic, if you’re a liberal with their head up their you know what for the last 8 years):
No wonder that — they did a survey, a lot of white Americans think reverse discrimination is as big a problem as discrimination against minorities, even though black unemployment is twice as high as white unemployment. And the typical Hispanic woman makes 55 cents for every dollar a white man earns, and there are only a handful of women running Fortune 500 companies.
Maybe if there is a way to quantify this in an honest light (meaning looking at the why, for instance, Hispanic women earn half of what white men do) he would be right, but it would be conclusion based on analysis that is only skin deep.
When you look at actual facts, like the numbers for blacks getting worse on Obama’s watch, or that economic struggles of certain groups have less to do with systemic discrimination than it does with choices that people make. Particularly when it comes to the one thing that explains wage gaps better than anything else, education.
Historically blacks and Hispanics have had higher dropout rates, and for Hispanics lower attendance at a four-year university.
It should go without saying…
That less education is directly linked to wages (even though college is becoming more and more useless, but that’s another story).
Does anyone for a second believe that Susana Martinez, the governor or New Mexico, makes 55% of what Gary Johnson was paid during his time in that office? That’s all you need to know to realize how completely full of s**t Obama and liberals are when they spew rhetoric about the pay gap and exclude facts so they can conclude that the cause is racism.
This is just one piece of a puzzle that shows a bigger picture that no president has been racially divisive (which is a polite way of saying “racist”) than Barack Obama, but he gets a pass on the things he says and does because of the liberal myth that it’s impossible for minorities to be racist…
When Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., who is black, was arrested after police received a 9-11 call about possible break-in at his home, Obama said “The Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home… there’s a long history in this country of African Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.”
Obama said if he had a son, he would look like thug Trayvon Martin, after media depicted George Zimmerman as a “White-Hispanic.”
His administration dismissed charges against New Black Panther Party members who threatened white voters at a polling station in Philadelphia in 2008.
And the list goes on.
There have been a lot of crocodile tears shed over Trump’s (fairly unjustified) comments against the Hispanic judge presiding over his Trump University lawsuits, but that’s because liberals view everything in a vacuum. Since they are such rank hypocrites, they have to do that, because facts, logic, and their own hypocrisy undermine everything they say and do, and realizing that could (or should, anyway) cause their brains to implode.
