Remember during the campaign how the left kept gloating about how Obama’s election to the presidency will change everything? They referred to him as the “post racial” president. The implication was that, finally, racism will end in America.
One commenter took me to task for attempting to wrongly attribute racial bias to Obama. In my post, Racism Is Alive And Well In America, it is evident that this president, even on inauguration day and amid all his happycrap blather about “coming together,” and “unity,” cannot let racism die.
And then suddenly, to add insult to injury, this new story surfaced. Barack’s economic advisor, former Labor Secretary, Robert Reich made this statement about the proposed economic stimulus plan:
- "I am concerned, as I'm sure many of you are, that these jobs not simply go to high school people who are already professionals or to white male construction workers. I have nothing against white male construction workers. I'm just saying that there are a lot of other people who have needs as well.
And therefore, in my remarks, I have suggested to you, and I'm certainly happy to talk about it more, ways in which the money can be -- criteria can be set so that the money does go to others. The long- term unemployed, minorities, women, people who are not necessarily construction workers or high skilled professionals."
