  • A conservative reporter heckled President Obama yesterday at a press conference in the rose garden of the White House.

    

I am outraged! Where does this level of disrespect come from?



    I think I know. The tradition of treating blacks with contempt is centuries old in the United States. In March of 1857, the United States Supreme Court, led by Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, declared that all blacks -- slaves as well as free -- were not and could never become citizens of the United States!

    

He wrote that the framers of the Constitution believed that blacks "had no rights which the white man was bound to respect". 

Hence, many white Americans do not respect Obama's presidency simply because he is black. (Birtherism, secret muslim, anti-American allegations stem from deeply entrenched inherent racism.)

    The attempts to publicly humiliate President Obama with impudence, rudeness and lack of respect is simply Un-American and intolerable.
