“Post-racial” was the media buzzword from the moment Barack Obama won the 2008 presidential election until well into his first term. We were told we were ringing in a new day in America, one where we finally started moving past the racism that stained our nation’s history. But we haven’t. In fact, we’ve regressed. A nation that is nowhere near what it was in the Democrat-created Jim Crow days is being portrayed as just as bad as it ever was for two simple reasons that are as old as time itself: money and power.

After twice electing a black president, liberal progressives would have you believe we’re just as racist a nation as we were when “separate but equal” was the law of the land. They know that isn’t true, but they say it anyway because they benefit from it.

Given Democrats controlled the House of Representatives from 2007 till 2011, the Senate since 2007 and the White House since 2009, the state of the economy is a direct result of their actions. There was no compromise, no consensus seeking with Republicans, no attempt whatsoever at bipartisanship. They passed whatever they wanted from 2009 till 2011 and it failed miserably. To distract from that fact, Democrats and their allies in the media switched the script to cries of racism.

In the last five years, the only growth industry in America has been cries of racism. Not actual racism most of the time, mind you, but cries of it. And the media has been more than willing to play it up.

What gets more coverage – Ukraine under attack from Russia or some old racist rancher saying something racist? How about the Secretary of State saying Israel is becoming an “apartheid state” or some old racist NBA team owner saying something racist?

This isn’t new. The New York Times created a new race of human beings – the “white Hispanic” – to make the Trayvon Martin case newsworthy. Then, the media proceeded to cover it ad nauseam while ignoring literally thousands of shootings and hundreds of murders in the president’s home town of Chicago. It’s disgusting, but it works.
