The Racism of the Black Community

While it is true 93% of black voters voted for Obama (in all likelihood because of his race), and while white voters who resist Obama are considered and treated like "racists," these developments are doing more to awaken white American activists than anything else. -- Ed.
According to allies of President Obama, all opposition to Obama's
policies is driven by racism. "We think all of it is!" shouts Gwen
Dawkins, a Democratic "activist" from Michigan. Rep. Eddie Bernice
Johnson (D-Texas) explains that "As far as African-Americans are
concerned, we think most of it is." Rep. Mike Honda (D-Calif.) agrees,
stating that "There's a very angry, small group of folks that just
didn't like the fact that Barack Obama won the presidency. With some, I
think it is [about race]." As Jimmy Carter famously stated, "I think an
overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward
President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man,
that he's African-American." many of them also believe.
Apparently, racism must be spreading like wildfire. According to a
Gallup poll released this week, only 47 percent of Americans now
approve of President Obama's job performance. Only 42 percent of
independents approve. In the white community, according to a Nov. 24
Gallup poll, his approval rating has slipped from 61 percent in January
to 39 percent. In the black community, his support has actually
increased, from 90 percent to 91 percent.
The fact is that it isn't the racism of the white community that
explains President Obama's plummeting job approval -- the skyrocketing
deficit, unemployment rate and inflation take care of that.
It's the racism of the black community that explains his approval rating's continued buoyancy.
How can blacks truly approve of Obama more highly than they did when
he was elected? The black unemployment rate is 15.6 percent today, as
opposed to 11.9 percent in December 2008, over 50 percent higher than
the white unemployment rate. There is no rhyme or reason to the
continued support for a man who has driven the economy off the rails.
But there is racism.
