This happens more and more frequently. Drag out race, every single time.
I have no idea what it is like to be black, being a recipient of white privilege (which seems to be the privilege to work like hell, be taxed out the wazoo and raise good little future citizens). Neither does Obama. What the hell does he know about it from a street point of view? Wealthy grandparents, gliding into exclusive schools, gilded life all the way up, Yep - life was a real struggle for him.
My son in law has a different take on Obama. "He's a useless c***," Steve will say before heading off to work. "He'd last about 3 minutes in Brixton." This from a large, tattooed Jamaican ex-gangbanger who dragged himself up without a whole lot of help. Sure, he did some bad shit when he were younger. Spent a couple years inside as well - used the time to learn a trade. He's my son by choice and I am proud of him.
