[Ed. – This seems to beg for a “trans-“/authentic truth moment. I see your racist card, POTUS, and raise you the self-identification card! America identifies as NON-racist, thank you very much. Damn the DNA, full speed ahead.]
Obama gave an interview to an insufferable hipster in which he insisted that the DMV was defined by slavery.
“The legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination in almost every institution of our lives, you know, that casts a long shadow, and that’s still part of our DNA that’s passed on.”
The 7-11 on the block? The DMV? The White House?
How exactly does an institution that only existed in a handful of states define the whole nation for all time? How does Jim Crow define the educational system in Hawaii? How has slavery influenced Seattle?
But we’re not supposed to ask questions like that. This is about collective guilt for personal power.
