We have to break through it..." - Senator Barack Obama
Not only does he call his grandmother a typical white person, he claims her reaction has been "bred" into her.
Not sure if that's racist? Try switching "black person" for "white person" and talk about what black people have had "bred" into them and see how fast you'd be labeled a racist.
I fail to see how this is racist. Her reaction that was bred into her is the result of living in a diverse society that recognizes the 'racial differences'( as most people see them as).
Can you go into detail on how this could be considered racist?
