ICYMI: Obama Says He Didn’t Pursue Reparations Due to ‘Politics of White Resistance’

The following article, ICYMI: Obama Says He Didn’t Pursue Reparations Due to ‘Politics of White Resistance’, was first published on Flag And Cross.

No black person with any self-respect would ask for reparations from taxpayers who had nothing to do with slavery. That being said, a lot of black people would love reparations – despite living in a country where they can become a multi-millionaire if they work hard enough.

The podcast is billed as two friends from polar opposite backgrounds coming together — Springsteen from a working-class New Jersey upbringing and Obama from a childhood spent in Hawaii and later, in Chicago — but both Springsteen and Obama are now wealthy Democrats.

Obama blabbered, “And what I saw during my presidency was the politics of White resistance and resentment. The talk of ‘welfare queens’ and the talk of the ‘undeserving’ poor.
