Princeton Professor: Blacks "Pretty Excited" That "Brother" Obama Has Not Been Shot Yet (Video)

Last night on MSNBCs Rachel Maddow show, Princeton Professor Melissa Harris-Lacewell discussed President Obama's first 100 days.

Harris-Lacewell, an associate professor of politics, says that even though they (Blacks) aren't supposed to really say it out loud, Blacks are "pretty excited that Barack Obama has not been shot at in his first 100 days."

Then she goes on to proclaim that most African Americans who have achieved Obama's level of success typically have often been subject to violence.

Obama's level of success?

I'm sorry, but exactly how many Black Presidents have there been in America again?

Umm... I'm 99% sure that Barack Obama is the first.

Remember, we are a "nation of cowards".

She defines success: "So its a new day in America that the guy is still giving press conferences 100 days later."

Am I missing something?

  1. I would think a relationship to Martin Luther King is what is being thought. But he didn't have the worlds best secret service.

  2. Its hard to believe, but lots of black people did not want to vote for Obama because they though he would get shot. Thats the truth
