A recording surfaced today from Obama's Unity, PA meeting with Hillary Clinton July 10th revealing that Obama discussed ending affirmative action in order to court the white vote, according to Fox News sources.
"We have the black vote in our back pockets. 90 percent plus" a voice distinctly Obama's is heard stating in an off-the-air but live-microphone moment.
"You know, we need more white vote. I'm gonna throw 'em a bone and talk about abolishing affirmative action" the voice continued.
On Sunday, however, Obama changed his perspective when threatened with McCain camp rhetoric supporting Arizona's initiative to ban preferential treatment. McCain's spokesman stated that "regardless of race, ethnicity or gender, the law should be equally applied."
"Nonsense" responded Obama. "I am a strong supporter of affirmative action", he then continued, seemingly rudderless in a hard-to-defend racially divisive position.
"We need unity in this country. In order to have unity you must first divide. Divide people by race and gender. Encourage anger, hostility, discrimination. Then everybody can start to come together after learning each others' differences. And French. We need to learn French."
Facing a silent and confused crowd, Obama then shouted "It's time for change", which drew loud cheers.
Affirmative Action embodies racial discrimination and divisiveness with its policies of race-based preferential treatments of non-whites. An increasing number of Americans view the policies as inherently flawed social engineering. The Arizona initiative received over three times the votes required to appear on the State ballot.
