We all know that Barack Obama has been a divisive President from the day he entered office. Now, one man has had enough of Obama’s racial tactics.
In a new interview with Sean Hannity, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke said of Obama, “This guy has continually, continually for eight years rubbed the stain of slavery… rubbed white peoples’ nose in the stain of slavery.”
He went on to say, “Is it close to January 20th? Can we buy the remaining time Obama has left? Can we buy him out like buying out a contract?” I bet there are a lot of conservatives who wished the presidency worked like this. I’m one of them.
In this interview, Sheriff Clarke talks about how Obama has used the issue of race to divide people and demonize whites over slavery, despite how long it has been since the evil of slavery was in our country.
“He’s about 150 years removed from slavery. Nobody said forget about it, but you have to be able to move on at some point. And he will not allow America to do that,” Clarke said. Here, Clarke makes the excellent point that yes slavery was bad, and we will never allow it to happen again, but just how long do we have to shame people about it?
We are never going to heal as a nation until we can realize that the younger generations have moved on from racial issues. Those generations cannot grow to eliminate the remaining racial bias in the United States if the older generations continue to talk about race as an us-versus-them issue.
Clarke then added, “Until he leaves the White House, we are going to continue to have to put up with this nonsense. People are tired of it. They proved it on November 8. Latinos, black people, white people, and other ethnicities have said we’ve had enough of this racial divide in America, and they really want to move on from it.”
Obama has ignored the American people’s clear desire to move on from the issue of race. The fact that Obama was elected as the first black president is sign that our racial tensions were dropping. We said to Obama: yes we will elect you. We are concerned with character, not skin colour.
Donald Trump has said that he thought when Obama was elected, that he was going to be a great cheerleader for the country; that he had a unique opportunity to bring blacks and whites together because he is mixed race. He clearly did not live up to that call to unite the country. Instead, he was one of the most divisive presidents in history.
Obama has jumped the gun to criticize white police officers every time an African American gets shot. However, he has said nothing about black on black crime or the high murder rate in the streets of Chicago.
Now, we are going to have to work together to get past the issue of race in America. We do that by focusing on what we have in common, not by focusing on what is different about us. We realize that we are all citizens of this country who are trying to survive together and if we just give each other a small amount of respect, we can live prosperously as a united country.
