Even Obama gets bleeped

In a recent discussion on racism in America, President Obama used the n-word, but viewers of MSNBC (and later Fox News) didn't hear him say it. Both cable channels bleeped the president in the clip that aired Monday morning.

"We have a warning for our viewers," MSNBC "Morning  Joe" host Mika Brzezinski said as she introduced the soundbite. "He (Obama) uses strong language, some of which may be considered offensive."

Viewers then heard Obama talking with Marc Maron, host of the WTF podcast, about the "legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination in almost every institution of our lives," as Obama put it.

"That casts a long shadow, Obama said. "And that's still part of our DNA that's passed on. We're not cured of it...racism, we're not cured of it.

"And it's not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public. That's not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. It's not just a matter of overt discrimination. Societies don't, overnight, completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior."

The n-word is not bleeped on Maron's WTF website, but it was bleeped in the re-play on MSNBC. (Fox News also bleeped the n-word when it replayed those same comments from the president later on Monday morning.)

You can NEVER get beyond something if you are perpetually dwelling on it.

The true racism lies with the leftist media, the Democrats and the black community all of which want a scapegoat for the fact that the African American community can't get a large chip off it's shoulder. If there is any repression of the black community it is coming from those who see them as a tool to be used in politics. Any success by African Americans sees them decried as traitors to their race as happens to many successful black Republicans. Obama is stoking races issues yet he is half white which means he hates at least half of who he is thanks the socialist upbringing. Michelle is no better. She still hates the US with a passion but is unable to articulate it as First Lady which just serves to deepen the hatred. You can't look at the US administration without seeing a majority of African Americans in top positions, far exceeding their percentage of the population. Are they really the best people for the job or are they there to undermine American's confidence in government and ultimately bring down the USA?
