Obama picks another winner for a position

http://dailycaller.com/2013/05/01/ob...ratic-process/
Quote:
President Obama’s pick to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency once said that a “majority of white voters” would never vote for a black candidate and that they should be excluded from “the democratic process.”

The White House announced Wednesday that Obama will nominate Democratic North Carolina Congressman Mel Watt to take over the FHFA, which regulates Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the country’s government sponsored mortgage companies.

Watt, the former chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, has in the past accused white Americans of racism.

“There would be a substantial majority of white voters who would say that under no circumstances would they vote for an African American candidate,” Watt said October 14, 2005 during a Washington hearing held by the National Commission on the Voting Rights Act.

The Voting Rights Act should be expanded to “adjust districts to take [racially motivated voting] into account,” Watts said.

Such voters “need to be factored out of the equation,” Watt said, because “I’ve got no use for them in the democratic process.”

I've never heard of a white American racist. This guy is obviously racist. Is he white or black or more like a cappuccino like me?

There was a black MD on NPR today...received a complaint that he acted uppity...using words the patient didn't understand. He wrote a 6 word poem. His was, "Speed limit is 55, black man."

He accused white Americans of racism? Is he delusional?

Well, you have to admit, white racism would be creepy if it existed. Good for AoG keeping an eye out for that.

This time he's on to something.

This is a heinous crime, and the offender should be prosecuted.

You're really not funny, at all. You should find a new hobby. I'm not quite sure why you've hitched your wagon to some imaginary statement that was made that "white racism" doesn't exist...but then again this is you.

This is about our president appointing someone who flippantly spouts off racist crap and then has the audacity to say they should be denied the right to vote. A black man saying people shouldn't be allowed to vote. Yeah, this is happening.

Your article said he "accused white americans of racism." Guess what? He was right.

Also, he didn't say white americans shouldn't vote, did he? Though, he did suggest redistricting, though that wasn't a new idea at all, was it?

Why can't you understand how blacks in this country would be pissed at what some in this country still believe? He was pissed. So he said that he thought bigots shouldn't be allowed to vote. You know what? I agree; they're too stupid to vote; but you know what else? He was being rhetorical...I'm pretty sure he knew you couldn't stop white voting nearly as well as blacks have been stopped from it.
