Skip to comments.CBC Staff: Opposition to Obama is Racist
Posted on 06/11/2012 11:21:49 AM PDT by GeorgeWashingtonsGhost
Angela Rye, Executive Director of the Congressional Black Caucus, argued that President Obama has struggled during his first term due to racially-motivated opposition from conservatives who dislike having a black president.
"This is probably the toughest presidential term in my lifetime," Rye said during CSPAN's Q&A yesterday. "I think that a lot of what the president has experienced is because he's black. You know, whether it's questioning his intellect or whether or not he's Ivy League. It's always either he's not educated enough or he's too educated; or he's too black or he's not black enough; he's too Christian or not Christian enough. There are all these things where he has to walk this very fine line to even be successful."
She said that "a lot" of conservative opposition is racially-charged, citing the use of the word "cool" in an attack ad launched by Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS superPAC. "There's an ad, talking about [how] the president is too cool, [asking] is he too cool? And there's this music that reminds me of, you know, some of the blaxploitation films from the 70s playing in the background, him with his sunglasses," Rye said. "And to me it was just very racially-charged. They weren't asking if Bush was too cool, but, yet, people say that that's the number one person they'd love to have a beer with. So, if that's not cool I dont know what is. Even 'cool,' the term 'cool,' could in some ways be deemed racial [in this instance]."
Rye said "I don't know" when asked if black enthusiasm for Obama might be lower than in 2008, but added that the Democrats have to explain how voter ID laws are racist to help motivate black voters.

Angela Rye is racist. Pure and simple. Say it once say it every time.
Talk about the mote in your brother’s eye!
It’s all Bushs’ fault........
How about “He isn’t American”? Or maybe, “He is too socialist”?
Frankly, I don’t give a damn anymore. Their bleats fall on my deaf ears, for sure. I’m sure it’s that way for many other honest Americans who actually pay net taxes. While they act like the majority, they are just gonna have to somehow become more than 12-15% of the population to make a difference.
Of course, the mainstream media, the administration and all the other politicos magnify that small percentage, but voting power is NOT there. It is only ‘there’ when we let it, when we become riddled with ‘white-guilt’ or the need to ‘seem not-racist’.
To my mind, they can bleat till the cows come home, till they get corraled and sheared of their mythical vote power.
These days, thanks to the Obama administration, I’m fine with being “racist.”
But, to quote Inigo Montoya, “I don’t think that word means what you think it means.”
The left simply defines racism as only possible for white people.
That is insane, but they do it. It is right out of Orwell’s 1984.
“White guilt” propelled the Marxist b*st*rd all the way into the White House.
It should come as no surprise that its flames are being fanned again. He cannot possibly win without it.
They can call us whatever they want and I won’t lose any sleep. They’ve cried wolf a thousand too many times for anyone to take them seriously.
They weren’t asking if Bush was too cool, but, yet, people say that that’s the number one person they’d love to have a beer with.
Heck yes, Bush would talk to you like a neighbor
Obama wouldn’t have a teleprompter so forget that.
Sure, how convenient that the 22nd Amendment was passed before a Black president was elected./sarc
Angela Rye, Executive Director of the Congressional Black Caucus
That says it all.
It’s always the fauilt of “The Man” to these people.
They have no sense of personal responsibility.It’s always someone else’s fault.
Any good leader know how to pick subordinates.
Look at Obama’s picks, and their records, and you will see that Obama is no leader at all.He didnt pick competent people he picked cronies and flunkies.
Angel Rye, I knew John Shaft. Obama is no John Shaft!
The sad thing is, the blacks that believe this are the ones most held back from achieving.
If you can con yourself into believing the reason you’ve never had anything is because of your skin color, then you’ve set yourself up for a lifetime of hate and failure.
“I say cool is a rule, but, sometimes bad is bad. Bah dip dip dip dip dip doo wop” Huey Lewis
The entire concept of a Congressional BLACK Caucus is racist. We have a black (1/2 black) president — time to disband the CBC.
Or, to paraphrase, “that word no longer has the effect that you think it should”...
I just laugh at people who take this position, because they’re asserting that we’d no oppose 0bama’s Marxist policies if he were white,
and that we’d oppose policies of Herman Cain, Thomas Sowell, Justice Thomas, Walter Williams, or Alan Keyes because they’re black.
Constantly playing the race card will not turn out well for you.
So Angela Rye thinks I’m a racist. I’m not, but hey Angela, if you think that, what are you going to do about it, huh?
I couldn’t care less what Angela and the Black Caucus think. Water off a ducks back.
Why is it, Ms. Rye, that most of us racists have great respect for Allan West? What’s that you say: He must be an Uncle Tom. I thought so!
What’s really racist is 97 or 98% of black people voting for someone solely because they are black! Now that’s racist!
But in 2012, people no longer care what they are accused of. The charge of racism has lost its sting.
Obama and his racist followers have ruined any racial harmony that used to exist in America.
While White folks I know still have positive feelings for those of other races, Obama has conjured a cloud of suspicion which follows members of his "adopted" race. I don't encounter a Black person nowadays without wondering if they hate me simply because I am White. And for this reason, there is now a mistrust that will be hard to remove.
This is one of the many negative legacies of Obama.
There. Truthed it for her.
Yeah, “whitey” is “racist” whilst gangs of blacks are ganging up and beating white people all across the country.
Uh, if it's played as poorly as Ms. Mushmouth just played it, it's cool.
“This is probably the toughest presidential term in my lifetime,” Rye said
We agree. It has been the most difficult for us out here watching the more unqualified man in the room leading anything.
Let me see his transcripts.

As of January 2011, 11.4 million Americans were enrolled in consumer-directed health coverage — a 14 percent increase over the 2010 total...

I’m no racist. I’ve backed the idea of a Sowell-Williams (or Williams-Sowell) ticket for years. I even had a bumper sticker printed one election reading: “Blacks to the Future - Sowell-Williams.” Ah!, perchance to dream. Also check out my pardon for being white. It’s from Dr. Williams himself.
Does the CBC allow white members? No? Does that make them racist?
Obama fails the “content of his character” test. After that he’s fair game. I’ve heard uniformed civic leaders refer to him as “that n*gger.”
Therefore, all of the opposition President George W. Bush got from the Congressional Black Racists was also racist.
I actually dislike his white side more due to his lack of rhythm and basketball skills.
Your organization is racist.
Call me when there’s a Congressional White Caucus.
And that’s coming from a sistah.
I told everyone to jump all over him before he got into office; I knew what he was. Everyone trembled to be called racist; Hell, they will say that anyway, so what. The fact the fool got in was due to all, not only blacks voting (and ACORN/Dem fraud of all colors... red).
After seeing that 97-98% of people of a certain ethnic group voted for FUBO based soley on his ethnicity ... and that most of that same group will still vote for him for the same reason, I now know who the REAL racists are.
I disliked this punk precedent way before I saw what he looked like .... He was a socialist rat.
I could care less that he’s grey....
"Setting the stage?" Are you kidding? We're well into the fourth act of the play, and we, the opposition, have been called "racist" for the crime of opposing at every turn so far.
I don’t think it’s gonna fly. If anything, such accusation might backfire on them. First, American have already voted a half-black President in 2008. It’s not like there was no opposition at that time. Second, Obama ran as someone above the fray as a candidate but governs as an ‘Us v them’ president. Any strategy that highlights this would only strengthen the (correct) perception that he only cares about his own people. That will turn off the independents and some Democrats big time.
Shes talking to my HAND!!..

[ open on high school locker room after the big basketball game ]
Coach Curtis Lewis: Alright, alright, alright — you guys listen. You fought hard, you have nothing to be ashamed of.
Bill: Come on, Coach. We were better than that team. We would have WON if you’d let us play five guys at a time!
Tom: Yeah, who ever heard of a team that only played with three guys?
Coach Curtis Lewis: Okay, okay - so it didn’t work out, I thought I could confuse them.
Al: You were — you were betting on the other team to support your drug habit, weren’t you, Coach?
Coach Curtis Lewis: [ stung ] You’re just saying that... because I’m BLACK!
Bill: That has NOTHING to do with it! We’re saying it because we CARE about you!
Coach Curtis Lewis: Oh, leave me alone! [ he step away ] Yuo guys never get high, what do you know?! Go ahead — shower! Get out of here!
Al: Hey, uh — you guys think we should take off our uniforms before we shower?
Team: Nah! Nah!
[ the team exits into the showers, as Coach goes through their lockers looking for money ]
[ SUPER: “The Black Shadow” over bouncy music ]
Announcer: “The Black Shadow”. Black coach, white team. He gets in trouble, they bail him out.
[ dissolve to Mrs. Crane’s office ]
Mrs. Crane: And so, I’m afraid I’m going to have to fire Coach Lewis.
Mrs. Crane: Look, there is NO WAY I can keep a faculty member here at John Davidson High School who has been caught distributing pornography in the cafeteria, and in the SAME WEEK assaults a student in the parking lot!
Bill: There’s no EXCUSE for Coach Lewis’ behavior, Mrs. Crane, but FIRING him won’t SOLVE anything! He’ll just get another job in another all-white suburban high school! There’s something going on inside him that’s turning him inside out! If we just had enough time, we could maybe figure out what it is and turn him around so he could face himself!
Mrs. Crane: I think I know what you mean. But even if we turned him around, I don’t see how he could face himself.
Tom: She’s right. What we want to do is turn him right-side out.
Al: No, that’s WORSE! Leave him inside out, see? At least then he can face himself!
Peter: Mrs. Crane, do you ever face yourself?
Mrs. Crane: Oh, yes. I face myself every morning.
Peter: Well, ho?
Mrs. Crane: By looking inside myself.
Tom: Yeah... but you’ve never been turned inside-out.
Mrs. Crane: [ laughing ] Oh, you’d be surprised! Well, since you put it that way, I’ll give him another chance. [ the team is thrilled ] But I’m warning you! I’m warning you — if he causes any more trouble, I’m gonna have to fire him... and make you boys wear normal clothes to class.
Team: Oh, wait a minute..!
[ dissolve to school hallway, Coach Lewis hitting on a female student ]
Female Student: Mr. Lewis, you don’t love me. Yuo jsut think you do.
Coach Curtis Lewis: No, baby! I’m CRAZY about you, baby!
Female Student: Ohhh, God. I mean, don’t you see? I’m fifteen; you’re forty! When you’re fifty, I’ll be twenty-five.
Coach Curtis Lewis: And I’ll still love you, baby!
Female Student: [ she sighs ] Oh... you should be seeing women your own age, going out and having fun!
Coach Curtis Lewis: [ he considers this ] It’s because I’m Black, isn’t it?
Female Student: [ she shakes her head ] Now, you know that just isn’t true!
[ the school bell rings ]
Female Student: I gotta go to class.
[ she exits down the hall with the other students, as a pregnant female student appears ]
Pregnant Student: Curtis Curtis! Curtis, you’re not still angry at me, are you?!
Coach Curtis Lewis: Go away! I told you: Stay out of my life! I’m too OLD for you!
Pregnant Student: Oh, yeah... but, Curtis! Please! Please! Look at me! I need to talk to you! I mean, I need some more heroin! [ Coach Lewis laughs ] I mean, now with Curtis, Jr. on the way, I —
Coach Curtis Lewis: Hey, hey — don’t!
Pregnant Student: — I got another habit to support!
Coach Curtis Lewis: Hey, listen — DON’T call him “Curtis, Jr.”, and get outta here!
Pregnant Student: [ stunned ] Okay!
Coach Curtis Lewis: I told you I’m too old for you, now who needs you? Beat it!
Pregnant Student: Okay, okay!
[ he exits down the hall, as the basketball team runs forward ]
Mitchell: Here he is!
[ the team surrounds Coach Lewis ]
Coach Curtis Lewis: Oh, boy...
Bill: Coach? You missed practice again today. Now, this is getting SERIOUS! It’s pretty hard for a team to play without supervision!
Coach Curtis Lewis: Hey, listen — I had to take care of my mom because... she’s sick. Yeah, that’s it! She’s sick! My mom’s sick. Now, get off my case and leave me alone! [ he turns to one of the teammates as he reaches into his pocket ] Hey, uh — you want to buy a gun? It’s got a registration on it... [ the teammate shakes his head No, so Coach Lewis exits the hall ]
Tom: Hey... I wonder if the Coach was telling the truth about his mother?
Bill: There’s only one way to find out.
Al: [ dumbly ] Smell his sneakers?
Bill: Nooo! Visit his mother.
Tom: Alright, let’s go!
[ the team rushes down the hall ]
[ dissolve to Mrs. Lewis’ house, as she reads Essence Magazine ]
[ the doorbell rings ]
Mrs. Lewis: I wonder who it is? [ she answers the door to the team ] Oh! What can I do for you?
Bill: Uh — we’re the Jhon Davidson High School basketball team. We’d like to talk to you about your son, Mrs. Lewis.
Mrs. Lewis: [ nervously ] Well, it’s freezing outside! Yuo guys must be cold! Come in!
Al: We like it!
Mrs. Lewis: Oh, you should. [ as they all crowd inside ] Uh — uh — what — is my son alright?
Tom: Oh, yeah, yeah. He’s alright, Ma’am.
Mrs. Lewis: Oh, thank God!
Peter: But, Mrs. Lewis, we think you should know that your son’s in trouble.
Mrs. Lewis: Oh, no, no... what’s he done now?
Tom: Well, I’m afraid he’s been stealing, uh, assaulting students, lying, committing arson, hoarding weapons in his locker, shaking down freshmen for hteir lunch money, encouraging truancy, torturing lab animals —
Mrs. Lewis: Please! Please! I don’t want to hear any more! I don’t know what gets him to do these things! I tried so HARD to teach him the right plan! [ she sinks onto her couch and cries ] Now it’s come to this! I don’t know what I’m going to do!
[ suddenly, Coach Lewis enters the house ]
Coach Curtis Lewis: [ angered ] What are you guys doing here?!
Bill: We came because we CARE!
Mrs. Lewis: They’ve been telling me... what you have been UP to, Son! Why is that you always hurt everyone around you?! Sometimes I’m ASHAMED to be your mother! [ she begins to cry ]
Coach Curtis Lewis: Mom... is it because I’m Black?
Mrs. Lewis: Now, you know that that has NOTHING to do with it! It’s because you’re a BAD BOY, that’s why! A bad boy... [ she cries harder ]
Coach Curtis Lewis: Really? Gosh. All my life, I’ve always thought... that everyone hated me because I was Black.
Bill: Would we be here if we hated you? [ he rubs the coach’s head ]
Tom: Yeah! We want to win that big game tomorrow night against The Visitors!
Coach Curtis Lewis: [ touched ] This really turns things around. I feel like a great chip... has been lifted from my shoulder.
Mrs. Lewis: Ohhhh, you’ve got it, Son! Now RUN with it!
Coach Curtis Lewis: [ excited ] Come on, you guys! We haven’t got much time! We gotta practice dribbling and passing and staying in bounds!
Bill: Come on! Let’s go!
[ the team rushes out of Mrs. Lewis’ house ]
Mrs. Lewis: My son!
Coach Curtis Lewis: MOMMA!!
[ they hug ]
Mrs. Lewis: Oh, Son...
[ dissolve to stock footage of the big game ]
Announcer: It’s Visitors, 99; Davidson, 98! It looks like it’s gonna come down to one last shot! Davidson scores the ball like a well-oiled machine! Coach Lewis really deserves a lot of credit for turning this team around! Here’s the shot! It’s tiptoeing in! He made it! [ buzz! ] The game’s over, and Davidson wins 100 to 99!
[ dissolve to locker room, as the team rushes in carrying Coach Lewis in their arms ]
Coach Curtis Lewis: Hey, hey! THIS... is the GREATEST day of my life!
[ Mrs. Crane enters ]
Mrs. Crane: Nice game, team!
Bill: Thank you, Mrs. Crane! Hey! Now what do you think of Coach Lewis?
Mrs. Crane: He’s fired.
Team: What?! For what?
Coach Curtis Lewis: But I don’t understand. I paid back all the money I stole. I flushed a POUND of heroin down the toilet and turned in my drug contact. I won the respect of my team, and led them to victory. And now you tell me... I’m fired. Why?
Mrs. Crane: Because you’re Black. [ a beat ] Just kidding!
[ everyone stands up and laughs themselves into a fake freeze-frame ]
