President Obama said that if economic prescriptions of the type he supports to increase economic growth and reduce “income inequality” are not adopted, then race relations in the United State may deteriorate further
“If we don’t do anything, then growth will be slower than it should be. Unemployment will not go down as fast as it should. Income inequality will continue to rise,” Obama said in an interview published Sunday by the New York Times. “Racial tensions won’t get better; they may get worse, because people will feel as if they’ve got to compete with some other group to get scraps from a shrinking pot. If the economy is growing, everybody feels invested, ” he said
So we have gone from the hope of a postracial America in 2008 to now, when the President is threatening us with racial unrest if he doesn't get his way.
Rush Limbaugh in 2008 said that Obama's election would only make racial relations worse, and it looks like he was 100% right.
It seems to me that by saying this the President is deliberately encouraging racial unrest. If he doesn't get what he wants, then what? Riots on cue?
