Black Lives Matter.
“Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon!”
Hands Up, Don’t Shoot.
“If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”
“F**k white people!”
If you recognize any of those phrases and don’t like them, you’re a racist and you need to check your privilege. You’re what’s wrong with America, and you’re on the wrong side of history. Shame on you. Shame, shame, shame.
But wait, there’s more!
President Obama said “we appear to have seen” a hate crime in the alleged attack on a Chicago man captured on Facebook.
“It’s terrible,” he said about the incident, during an interview with ABC Chicago affiliate WLS…
Though Obama said he thinks race relations have “gotten better” in the country for the most part, he said reports like this show the work still to be done. “In some ways, we have surfaced tensions that were already there but are getting more attention,” he said.
See? This is pretty bad, but things have still gotten better over the past 8 years. Whew!
Here are the actual words coming out of his mouth:
These things are “being surfaced,” everybody. Things like this:
You have to admit, white people, this is mostly your fault.
I think what I’ll miss most about President Obama is his ability to warp reality itself to his will, merely by saying words. If you think something is a problem and he doesn’t think it’s a problem, or vice versa… Presto! It becomes whatever he says it is. That’s a pretty amazing ability, and I hope his successor carries on his mystical legacy.
Is it too late for Obama to invite that young man and his family to the White House? After all, that’s what happens when you’re a victim of racism in America.
Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It's what makes America great.

Probably not. King Barry is too busy packing. Maybe when Michelle gets elected president.
