Our Racial Divider in Chief

Our Divider in Chief is still talking about slavery and how it is "still part of our DNA." Why is it that there are some among us who cannot stop talking about race? Why is everything they see in terms of race? 

Because it is a form of psychological projection whereby these people defend their own impulses by attributing them to others while denying them existing within themselves.

When those 9 black church members were killed by a crazy racist white man in Charleston, S.C., Obama said in an interview "Racism, we are not cured of it. And it's not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public. That's not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It's not just a matter of overt discrimination. Societies don't, overnight, completely erase everything that happened 200 or 300 years prior."

His race consultants
Nobody on the right is arguing with him that racism still exists. In fact, it probably, and unfortunately, will always exist in the human experience. But he, as the first black president (yes, I know he's "half white," but he doesn't seem to push that so much on the public) should show pride in the American people for electing him.

Is it okay for a black president to use the "n" word? Does his black skin give him the license to utter a racial slur?

No more than a Jew making anti-Semitic comments or a Christian calling a "Piss Jesus" a work of art. It's legal, but it doesn't feel okay.

Sure, there are racists in America, but not all of them are white. Many of them are people who talk about "white privilege" and hate us for being born with less melanin. That's as crazy as the slime ball who killed those dear church goers in South Carolina.
