Powered by Hate: Racist Content from Dreams from My Father
American Thinker ^ | 6/28/12 | William A. Levinson

The following quotes are from the paperback edition from Three Rivers Press (New York), ISBN 978-1-4000-8277-3. The content is also verifiable from Google Books. It is important to state up front, and reiterate later, that the racist content of Dreams from My Father is 100 percent consistent with Mr. Obama's open association with hate-mongers like Jeremiah Wright and Al Sharpton.

Pages 99-101 of the book are particularly informative because Barack Obama talks very explicitly of his racial identity politics. He identifies very clearly as an African-American as opposed to a melting pot American, which makes him totally unqualified to be president for Americans of all races and ethnicities. He begins by talking about "problems" with a classmate of multiracial (Caucasian, Native American, and African-American) ancestry, and then talks about showing one's loyalty to "the black masses."

..."I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of twelve or thirteen, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites"

“...necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.”

Mr. Levenson should remember Racism Rule #1: By their definition, black people cannot be racist toward white people.

Even if they are only 50% black. That’s another definition. 50% = 100%.

Had a social work major explain this to me in college when I asked what’s in it for me (honky cracker) when I (soon) become a statistical minority in the

IE: can one be a numerical racial minority and then claim goodies from the minority benefits grab bag if that racial minority happens to be white? (Answer was “NO!”. )

I learned in college that social work majors and future ‘educators’ were some of the dumbest and most racist people there are.

First, I want to correct something I said. I said “by their definition.” I do not want to lump all black people in that group since not all black people agree. It is defined by black studies type academics, not sensible people.

Having said that, here are several links I wanted to put up.

This video is a REAL killer -

Whites are racist because they belong to the power group, which supposedly always overcomes the out of power groups.

This means whites are born racist.

This means that it is totally stupid and redundant for black ‘leaders’ or any black people to call whites racist.

This means that if I am called a racist, I can do nothing about it since I was born white. Therefore, all I could say would be, “Of course I’m racist! Just look at my skin.”

This also means that since I can do nothing about it until all white people are dead, I might as well enjoy it. No amount of counseling can make me non-racist, so it makes no sense to even try. It is like trying to talk a dog into being a cat.

This means that ‘racist’ is a term that has no power since it applies to the nastiest anti-black bigot to the nicest white person in the world. Accept it. You can do nothing about it.

This means that black people should not hold this against us because it is an accident of our birth, just like their skin color is. They should not be angry at us for being racists any more than they should be angry at the dog for not being a cat. It is not a character flaw! Being a bigot, however, can be a flaw.

This means white people should not be offended and just throw it right back and say, “I was born this way and can do nothing about it. Accept it.”

We should stop using the term ‘racist’ since it is now meaningless. Instead, we need to say “anti-white bigot” or “white hater” or something with more punch than ‘racist.’

I thank the black academics who made up this definition. I can now say, “I was born racist and I can do nothing about it.”
