Obama: Black Vicitimhood Is Dead

by | 6th, November 2008

OBAMA wins. And black victim hood dies. No excuses:

Some black leaders say Obama’s political success means it’s time to shift away from the dialogue of victimhood.

“Racism is no longer the primary obstacle to black progress. With the election of a black man whose middle name is Hussein, the rhetoric of white racism is off the table,” declared the Rev. Eugene Rivers, a Boston-based minister with a national agenda and a history of taking controversial stands. “Black people don’t want to hear it. White people don’t want to hear it. . . . The old school is over.”

Blacks are no longer victims… right?
