These past few months, there seems to be a trend of white liberals, posing as black people, seeking to be accepted in some of the most divisive groups and movements of our time: The NAACP and Black Lives Matter. Rachel Dolezal was the first. This past June, Rachel was outed as a white woman by her biological parents, despite for years claiming to be black. Due to the backlash she received, she was forced to resign her role as President of the Spokane NAACP and has found a much more promising career in the field of cosmetology, where being a certified racebaiter is absent within the usual job description. Now just last week, Shaun King, an influential voice in the “Black Lives Matter” movement was outed as a white man! Now, this seems to be turning into some really sick pattern, and I don’t like it one bit. For a party that seems hellbent on eradicating every controversial object, figure, and symbol dealing with race, they seem to have no problem embracing modern day black face.
But, let’s be honest: Shaun isn’t Rachel Dolezal 2.0. That honor belongs to our Divider in Chief, Barack Hussein Obama. Now, while many Democratic Party elites don’t seem to remember this seemingly well known fact, President Obama isn’t black. He’s biracial. So, essentially, hasn’t he excelled at doing exactly what Shaun and Rachel did–just with far less criticism?
While some seek to sugarcoat the honest to God truth, I’m just going to go ahead and be blunt. President Obama was elected in large part for being “black.” Many African Americans saw him as one of their own. They saw him as an opportunity to put the first “black” man in the White House. But as far as I’m concerned, we allowed ourselves to once again fall victim to the stellar masquerade skills of the left. President Obama made it to the White House, not because of his own merit, but by pulling an immensely cruel joke on the black community.
Under President Obama’s leadership, unemployment among the black community has reached a staggering 14.4%, more than double the overall unemployment rate for all Americans (which currently stands at 5.3%). That’s not even the worst of it. Under Obama, more blacks make minimum wage than any other race, and fewer blacks own homes than any other race. I don’t think this was the hope and change many in the black community expected when casting their votes for President Obama.
But like Rachel Dolzeal and Shaun King, white liberals who sometimes find it convenient to forget about their very own racial identity, President Obama has played a 6.5 year long running joke on the black community. The joke being that “I’m here for you, guys,” “I know the struggle,” and my personal favorite, “I’m one of you.” The numbers don’t lie, but opportunistic race baiters do. They lie about their race. They lie about their sympathy. They lie about their very own identity.
President Bush said it best, so I thought I’d quote him here: “…fool me once, shame on you. Fool me — you can’t get fooled again.”
