"It is truly a sad day in America when the president of the United States fans the flames of racial hatred. The man elected to be president of all the people, in his speech at the NAACP basically said, though America is racist, sexist and homophobic, you can make it in spite of those white SOB's attempts to stop you. Wonderful. How inspiring. The NAACP audience erupted in applause. Obama's condemnation was 'red meat' to the liberal, protective of their victim status, organization."
The outrage of Obama's words are a driving force for the rising occurence of bad behavior of people like Henry Louis Gates excused by using the race card.
