Barack Obama was trying to explain why he threw his white grandmother under the bus during his ‘A More Perfect Union’ speech, and managed to call the “typical white person” a closet racist in the process. During his speech Obama said his white grandmother would sometimes make him “cringe.” According to Obama his grandmother was “a woman who once confessed her fear of black men who passed by her on the street, and who on more than one occasion has uttered racial or ethnic stereotypes that made me cringe.” Obama went on 610 radio in Philadelphia this morning to explain what he meant about his grandmother, and proceeded to insult the “typical white person.” He explained, “The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t. But she is a typical white person who, uh, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know there’s a reaction that’s been been bred into our experiences that don’t go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way and that’s just the nature of race in our society. We have to break through it.” It really isn’t that surprising he can’t renounce Rev. Wright and his actions. Racism is just as much a part of Barack Obama as he accuses the “typical white person” of having.
