Obama’s Non-Stop Race-Baiting Politics
The president and Attorney General Eric Holder have seized far too many occasions to foment racial discord. Even when Obama nominally supports law and order, he signals for more rioting, burning, and looting.

- The president correctly said that: ". . .there are still problems and communities of color aren’t just making these problems up. . . . The law too often feels like it’s being applied in a discriminatory fashion . . . these are real issues. And we have to lift them up and not deny them or try to tamp them down.”
These problems, in his mind, were only that the police discriminated against blacks. He ignored the fact that the vast majority of blacks killed are killed by blacks, that the inner cities like his Chicago, see a dozen young blacks killed every week, that the breakdown of the Black family structure has contributed to gang violence and urban killings, and that strict gun control in cities has not reduced violence.
These are real problems, fueling the expansion of a huge dysfunctional underclass, that should be addressed by the nation's leadership. Instead Obama chose to cover-up those issues by blaming law enforcement personnel who are in fact often overwhelmed by the crazed rioting of those activists inflamed by the presidents' rhetoric
