Skip to comments.MSNBC: Obama graded harder because he's black (Dog-Whistle Racism From MSNBC?)
Posted on 04/24/2012 6:46:12 AM PDT by tcrlaf
MSNBC hosts agreed this weekend that white voters hold President Obama to a higher standard than his white predecessors because he is black.
"[Obama] now has a specific record of governing," MSNBC's Melissa Harris-Perry said today on her show. "A record that, I contend, because of his race will be held to a much higher standard than it would have been for a white incumbent. Those white voters who found what they were looking for in 2008 will not necessarily be so enthusiastic in 2012."
Alex Wagner, host of MSNBC's NOW, agreed. "I think race absolutely has to do with the conversation about reelection," she said.

It's NOT because the Obama brand over-promised, and undelivered, it's because WHITE PEOPLE ARE RACISTS!!! WHO KNEW!
The alternative side of MSNBC's racism is "we shouldn't have expected Obama to follow though on his promises, because he is BLACK!". How do these klowns get by with this crap?
What a pathetic excuse. the "You aren't ALLOWED to citisize Obama because he's BLACK!" excuse isn't going to fly this time. Obama promised the sheeple Unicorns, and delivered a schit sandwich, instead.
Anybody remember Peggy Joseph from the Obama Orlando Rally?
You need to be more nuanced and recognize that Zer0 is a white black.
Earth to MSMBC:
Your president is graded F because he’s a vapid dork.
Were he white, he’d still be a vapid dork.
He is the ultimate example of a quota baby...all show and no talent.
Vapid, vapid, vapid, dork, dork, DORK!!
Beware of women with three names...
Maybe the practice went all the way back to his time at Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard, which is why we have never seen his University transcript?
What was it they used to say about someone who spends all his money as soon as he gets it?
To say I am sick of this crap is an understatement.
This is just part of
“He’s black so you can’t criticize him”.
Obama was selected by the commies SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE his skin color is a scrutiny shield.
And all first names at that.
But for being black skinned, Obama would not have been elected.
Household incomes are DOWN $3,000 because of Obama.
And he's playing 100 rounds of golf that I am paying for!
It's not his skin color. It's his policies!
We are expected to give him more slack because he is black.
Just look at the numbers:
college students un or under employed,
housing price declines and rampant foreclosures,
increases in food stamps and welfare,
increases in disability applications because people can’t find jobs,
fuel prices shooting up,
food prices showing significant increases due to inflation,
ineffectiveness at fixing social security,
ineffectiveness at fixing Medicare,
Those numbers have nothing to do with the color of Obama’s skin. They are directly related to his policies and ineffectual leadership.
To the headline: What a joke. If BHO had been white, he would have already been impeached.
Obama is getting a helluva lot of passes because he is black. Bush would never have survived three years pulling the crap Obama has.
The lisping leftist black women using the race card what a shocker
I’d be just as happy to give his white half an “F”.
I’d never heard of her till today.
Hey Bro 4 more Years of this!
(picture of Obama)
Her lisp drives me nuts. I’ve heard her speak before and it makes me want break the TV.
Party's almost over.
Does this lefty-loser writer think this is Opposite Day?
So when 94% of black people vote for Obama are they racist?
In liberal land, there’s always an excuse available to keep them from ever being wrong.
Down $3000 per family? No, that’s an average.
Probably more like “Down $9000 per working family”.
The Presidency is just another standardized test.
Where are his grades anyway. We want to see those grades as well as the courses.
This is an attempt to rebuild “White Guilt” so the poor racists can have penance by voting for the black man.
That is some funny stuff right there.
Obama has been graded on his own special curve for at least the last 40 years.
Seems to me that the claims of MSNBC that whites are racist in their attitude towards Obama is completely off base. If racism were involved wouldn’t he be held to a LOWER standard, suggesting that because he is black he is LESS capable? Holding someone to a higher standard suggests that he/she is capable of being held to that standard...
You’ve never heard of her? She’s on MSNBC a lot.
Maybe you don’t watch MSNBC???
I channel surf, and sometimes stop on MSNBC. And it seems that she and that dude “Toure”, are there lecturing us about this and that.
Why is it that liberals tend to lecture?
If a white guy had pulled 1/2 the stuff Obama has, there would be people with pitchforks pulling down the Whitehouse fence.
He is forgiven and his Marxism overlooked because of his skin pigment.
I really hate the left. They are wicked and self-destructive, and they are taking us all down with them.
The only people concerned about his race are the liberal media
Scream louder...I’m really deaf to all the charges of racism.
I don’t give a da** anymore.
I resent the living crap out of this type of accusation. The MSM’s very definition of racism is people who don’t take color into consideration, and yet this type of evil spews out the other fork of their tongue.
“give him more slack because he is black”
Oh no! That would be racist too. I guess we’re just expected to either say how wonderful he is or shut up. The liberals view everything through the prism of race. Makes it difficult to have an intelligent or meaningful conversation with them.
I don’t know about you guys, but personally I am picking on his White Half
Why are the cute ones always so dumb?
That headline makes me chuckle. When someone says something that is 360 degrees out of kilter with reality, it always makes me laugh.
