It was in Obama’s home state of Illinois. School officials are trying to say that since it’s not an official textbook, it shouldn’t be all that big of a deal. Sure, it’s in the school library, and kids are free to read it, but it’s not required. Besides, it’s not like the biography contained false information. It told the truth about Obama and the fact that white people didn’t vote for him, because he has some black in him. It probably had something to do with white privilege.
Here’s an excerpt taken from the book on page 40:
“But some people said Americans weren’t ready for that much change. Sure Barack was a nice fellow, they said. But white voters would never vote for a black president. Other angry voices were raised. Barack’s former pastor called the country a failure. God would damn the United States for mistreating its black citizens, he said.
Barack decided it was time to speak to Americans about race. The country’s history of slavery had left the nation in pain, he said. Black people and white people were too often angry with one another. All people were going to have to work together to solve the country’s problems. Only in that way could Americans make a more perfect United States.”
To make matters worse, The Blaze pointed out that this comes in the wake of comments from Secretary of Education Arne Duncan that only “white suburban moms” were opposed to the Common Core curriculum.
So, white people wouldn’t vote for Obama, because he’s black; and white people don’t like Common Core, because Obama’s black.
And that bit about Obama wanting to solve America’s race problems. What a joke. He’s only exacerbated racial problems. Every white person is a racist for disagreeing with the Obama administration’s policies. And any black person that speaks out against them is “acting white.” Black-on-white violence is virtually ignored or treated as rare, isolated occurrences. The Martin/Zimmerman case was given wall-to-wall coverage and used as evidence that all white people are racist, and all blacks are victims. Even the President got involved in that local story. I’m sure he was only trying to “bring people together.”
