I’m telling y’all straight up, this racism charge is only just beginning. Seriously. I know many of you think it’s funny and tiresome, but let me tell you frankly that it hasn’t even begun yet. We are only seeing the tip of the iceberg. Now the back story…..
If you have watched the video of President Obama’s speech to the Congressional Black Caucus, you will note the dialect, intonation, and specific intentional style he presented for his audience. He was specifically, and intentionally, using an African-American linguistic style to emphasize his message. Having watched, and listened to numerous previous Obama speeches, you cannot be intellectually honest and view his presentation in any other fashion.
The Associated Press considered this in their transcribed headline: “Obama Tells CBC To Stop Complainin'” Note they transcribe as it was spoken without the “G”. This is the same transcription method I use when transcribing quotations. It is honest to transcribe the verbage as it was spoken to present the inflection, eloquence and intonation with the quote. However, MSNBC in their insufferable progressive drumbeat of Obama protectionism declares that style of transcription to be, wait for it, yep, “racist”.

Here is the explanation from AP:
Normally, I lean toward the clean-it-up school of quote transcribing — for everyone. But in this case, the President appeared to be making such a point of dropping Gs, and doing so in a rhythmic fashion, that for me to insert them would run clearly counter to his meaning. I believe I was respecting his intent in this. Certainly disrespect was the last thing I intended.
Presenting the transcription with the dialect and intonation is racist according to MSNBC, and more specifically the insufferable progressive Chris “Obama has superpowers’ Hayes. He presents on his MSNBC panel show ‘reflective transcription’ as evidence of racism.
See How Chris Hayes views Obama in this video:
This is the Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz, Rachael Maddow, Al Sharpton, Lawrence O’Donnell school of race baiting and avoidance. It is a strategic effort with specific forethought to avoid actual intellectual engagement of Obama policies. They seem to surreptitiously ignore the fact Obama was talking to a Congressional “Black” Caucus, by its very charter a keen racist organization focusing special interest points only based on the color of a person’s skin.
Intellectually I admit I used to cover for this myself, avoiding the mannerisms that Obama used. I was wrong. He really is deeply committed to race baiting. The most racist part of me was actually the part that was cutting him slack and avoiding the discussion because he was black. That is wrong. It is insulting to black people. It is insulting to black greatness, and the intellect of great black people to ignore an evident fact merely because of an internal fear of being labeled myself. I’m admitting my failing, time for the rest of the word to do the same. Barack Obama is part of an apparatus that thrives on the fear of racism. They succeed by planting guilt upon the audience to stop them from pointing out the obvious.
Just like the fact Obama is NOT the least bit intellectual, so to is he NOT post-racial despite the narrative created by the media. The Obama machine is ratcheting up the drum beat of subtle racism at almost every opportunity. Even his call to “march with me” during this aforementioned speech is ridiculous. He’s in charge. He is, for all intents and purposes “the man”. He lives in the White House. He is the President of The United States Of America. Who exactly is he marching against?
And whoever they are, where are they?
