This has turned into a pretty poor day for Barack Obama, capped by him saying his grandmother is afraid of black people not out of racial animosity, but because she is a “typical white person.”
Here’s the quote to Philadelphia sports station WIP, after he was asked if his grandmother — who he mentioned unflatteringly in his landmark speech on race Tuesday — was proud of him:
The point I was making was not that grandmother harbors any racial animosity. She doesn’t.
But she is a typical white person, who, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn’t know, you know, there’s a reaction that’s been bred in our experiences that don’t go away and that sometimes come out in the wrong way, and that’s just the nature of race in our society.
We have to break through it, and what makes me optimistic is you see each generation feeling a little less like that, and that’s powerful stuff.
The campaign has not explained the remark.
Or this one, from Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, which seems unintentionally to disparage previous African American leaders, much in the was Hillary Clinton seemed to diminish the contributions of Martin Luther King Jr. when she said back in New Hampshire that it took a president to realize his dream.
McCaskill told the Kansas City Star., “He, for the first time, I think, as a black leader in America, has come to the American people not as a victim, but rather as a leader.”
And then here’s Sen. John Kerry, seeming to make the same mistake that Clinton supporter and former Sen. Bob Kerrey did when he said Obama could reach out to other nations and cultures because of his background, which prompted accusations that he was covertly furthering the mistaken belief by some that Obama is Muslim.
Kerry told a Massachusetts Web site and newspaper that Obama could bridge the divide with moderate Muslims. Asked what gives him the credibility to do that, Kerry said: “Because he’s an African-American. Because he’s a black man who has come from a place of oppression and repression in our own country.”
Update: Ben LaBolt, an Obama spokesman, offered the following clarification: “Barack Obama said specifically that he didn’t believe his grandmother harbored any racial animosity but that her fears were understandable and typical of those often shared by her generation.”
Ummm, that’s not what he said.
