A new video of President Obama, in his pre-president days, while he was taking his first trip to Kenya in his 20s, has emerged – and its contents are sure to shock.
The narrator on the video is Obama’s own sister, Auma, and as Clash Daily points: The clip gives a very interesting peak behind the curtain of Obama’s psyche.
What’s the big reveal of the video?
Well, here’s a taste – though to get the rest, you’ll have to sit for the whole clip, about 20 minutes.
“His comments on ‘white privilege’ in Kenya [are] at the 14:40 mark,” Clash Daily reported.
And this is what Obama says, on the video, in part, while speaking in Kenya: “I’m deeply saddened by a sense that whites are still superior in this country, in some sense that if you sit at a restaurant, they’re served before a Kenyan is served. If you go through customs, a white person’s going to have an easier time going through customs. … If you look at Kenya right now, you get a sense that although on the surface things are relatively tranquil, that beneath the surface things could explode at any point.”
The video is helpful in terms of understanding Obama’s viewpoint as president.
As Clash Daily said: “Obama’s 1990 comments are fascinating given the fact that his presidency has been tainted by some of the worst race relations in America for decades, fueled by police shootings and riots in Ferguson, Baltimore and Charlotte. … Did Obama have this bias all along? It looks as though he did.”
Perhaps that’s why Obama jumps so quickly on matters of race to the side of the minority—even when it pits a police officer against a suspect with a shady past.
