The Dawn Of A New Obama Age! Government Racism


Hey, it’s the dawn of a new age! That new age includes government sanctioned racism: (h/t Hot Air)

Robert Reich:

I am concerned, as I’m sure many of you are, that these jobs not simply go to high-skilled 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. … 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.

Reich’s bio:

Robert Bernard Reich served as the twenty-second United States Secretary of Labor, serving under President Bill Clinton from 1993 to 1997.

A Dartmouth graduate, Reich is a former Harvard University professor and the former Maurice B. Hexter Professor of Social and Economic Policy at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University. He is currently a professor at the University of California, Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy. Reich is also on the board of directors of He is a trustee of the Economists for Peace and Security.

He is also an occasional political commentator, notably on Hardball with Chris Matthews, This Week with George Stephanopoulos , CNBC’s Kudlow & Company, and National Public Radio.

In 2008, Time Magazine named him one of the Ten Most Successful Cabinet Members of the century, and the Wall Street Journal placed him among America’s Top Ten Business Thinkers. On November 7, 2008, he was selected by President-elect Barack Obama to be a member of the President-elect’s economic transition advisory board.

This top ten business thinker in America believes that there should be some sort of means test by setting up some criteria on who gets the funds and who doesn’t. The criteria? Anyone but a white guy.

Ed Morrissey:

This sounds a lot more like a paternalistic welfare program than a real effort to improve American infrastructure. We’re building roads and bridges for all Americans, using tax money from all Americans. Everyone should have equal access to the jobs created by this stimulus plan.

In the beautiful world of Obama we were supposed to all come together right? Change! Apparently the change means that race will become a important factor in who gets what opportunities.

It appears the words of Obama’s mentor, Rev. Wright, had a bit more meaning to him then we were told eh?

I say if we’re going to award jobs to people not based on experience or ability to perform the job, let’s start out by replacing the secret service agaents for all the politicians who support this crap with some homeless people.

Pretty funny, Dick.

I recall a few years back how a black work aquaintance of mine told me how I had no concept of the discrimination he had experienced.

I have a very strong feeling, with O at the helm, that as a white, working, middle age, middle class, hetero, practicing Catholic, I am going to find out!

Will the era of white guilt ever cease? This is getting plain embarrassing.

Hope they put up signs on the bridges they build.

“No money for this bridge went to ‘high-skilled people who are already professionals’. Please treed lightly”

Newguy, he has no idea of the racism I received from the blacks I lived with while growing up. I got to witness the parents teaching their kids they could never be anything because of the white man.
Too many blacks find racism where it isn’t.

“the long term unemployed minorities, women, people who are not necessarily construction workers or high-skilled professionals.”

Welcome to a future of driving across bridges built by people who are not necessarily construction workers or high-skilled professionals. Next flying on aircraft built by the lowest bidder and wondering why you are going down.

Millions of Amercans are scheduled to die and their blood will be on Chairman O’s hands.

To prove he actually believes what he says Reich merely needs to spend the remainder of his life unemployed so any job he’s qualified for can be held by someone who is racially acceptable. He and his fellow whites should also sit at the back of the bus and stay away from lunch counters meant for the racially superior. Maybe he could also draft a letter to the KKK telling them that in so many ways he agrees with them except for a shift in emphasis. Lacking all that he should take his racist foolishness and STFU.

A friend of mine, a Nebraska resident after retirement from the Military sent me this info.

Judge upholds affirmative action ban

LINCOLN — A judge today upheld Nebraska’s ban on affirmative action, ruling that a petition drive to place the issue on the ballot was legal.

Voters approved the initiative in November, after opponents of the effort filed a lawsuit in Lancaster County District Court.

The constitutional amendment never uses the words “affirmative action.’’ But it prohibits state and local governments from giving preferential treatment to people on the basis of race, sex, ethnicity or national origin.

The lawsuit challenged the validity of petition signatures, saying some were gathered using a “pattern of fraud and illegality.’’

But Judge Karen Flowers rejected the arguments, writing that the right to the initiative process “should not be circumscribed by a narrow and strict interpretation of the statutes pertaining to its exercise.’’

Lets see how it holds up through the appeals process. All that celebrate the end of Racism should celebrate the decision. US Constitution, 14th Amendment. Equal Protection Under the Law for All. The Race Card is no longer legit in Nebraska. No more quotas based on skin color.
It is good news for those that were never Slaves or Owned any. This should be Post Racism America. What I heard from the Clown that gave the Inaugural Benediction was Racist, insulting & demeaning. Lets all get beyond that business now.

Something tells me the “long term unemployed” prefer to stay that way.

Those two stooges are either completely clueless or disgustingly anti-American…take yer pick. I think it’s the latter.

“I have nothing against white male construction workers.”

Good thing. They’re practically a dying breed.

At least in my part of the country all the construction workers are Mexican. Rangel is looking at the wrong race.

What happend to the goal of judging people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin.

Love the comments on posting signs on bridges built by unprofessionals in learning.

How many white people voted for Obama and his fool advisors??

So basically, whites need not apply?

No surprises here. Obama was openly an affirmative action campaigner, and will be an affirmative action POTUS. Perhaps it’s just as well he embarks on his “black first, American second” agenda on day one and two. This stuff will not play well for most Americans… including many that are black. I suspect Ward Connerly’s eyes are rolling by now.

Thanks for that post out of Nebraska Old Trooper; as one who spent his childhood living there, it brings me a small sense of pride to see that Cornhusker wisdom stands in the face of the insanity that seems pervasive out here on the west coast.
So, in just the first week of BHO’s presidency we’re finding out that the “post-racial” nation is simply a figment of campaign rhetoric. Yeah, I think I want the bridges built by unskilled labor to have signs on them; I’ll be adjusting my driving route accordingly, thank you very much. Well, with these programs coming out so early, hopefully the American people will be good and sick of them by the time November 2012 rolls around. Even liberal white guilt has to have its limits, or am I giving them too much credit?
