A Post-Racial America? Hardly

Elizabeth Price Foley:
Ah yes, remember those heady days back in 2008, when Americans of all races voted for a young Senator named Barack Hussein Obama in the sincere hope that he would heal this country’s racial divisions, ushering in a new, post-racial era? Fuggedaboutit. It was merely a carefully crafted illusion, intentionally designed to tug on the heart strings of well-meaning, ordinary folks hoping for a color blind society
But Obama showed his real face–the Billy Joel “Stranger”-type freaky face (“Well we all have a face that we hide away forever. And we take them out and show ourselves when everyone has gone.”)– in this Daily Caller video, in a 2008 speech to an audience of black ministers. Copping an insincere, absurd, stereotypical black “accent,” then-candidate Obama repeatedly suggests that the federal government behaves in a purposefully racist manner.
She goes on to add:  "Hopefully, now that we’ve seen The Stranger, we can all vote with our eyes wide open."

Sadly, a quick scan of the major media websites confirms they are doing their best to make sure most Americans never see "The Stranger" (just as they did in 2007).  Comparing the coverage between this video and Romney's "47%" video would be stunning if it weren't all too predictable. The fix is in.  We can only hope that most American's see it.
