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.

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.
