We are having a tremendous amount of this black-on-white violence and I have a feeling that instead of bringing racial harmony, having an African-American president has exacerbated the problem...He seems to be wanting to bring division among people instead of bringing them together; he is one of the most divisive leaders this country has ever had. And, it just seems he wants to rub the edges raw every chance he gets to talk about the rich, or talk about the privileged, or talk about the impoverished middle class, blacks and whites and so forth. There's always something there to stir up controversy.
Translation: a) Obama is "divisive" because he's black; b) Obama is rubbing things raw by talking about the same things (rich people, the poor, the privileged) that Jesus did. Hmmmm.
