Giuliani: I’m Not Racist Because Obama’s Mother Was White
[su_right_ad]I wonder if this means that, if both of the president’s parents were black, the former New York mayor would, then, be racist. The comment in question was Giuliani’s statement, “He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up, through love of this country.”
Critics suggested that Mr. Giuliani’s description of Mr. Obama’s upbringing reflected a prejudiced view that Mr. Obama was different from other Americans.
In an interview with The New York Times, Mr. Giuliani dismissed the criticism and said he was describing the worldview that had shaped Mr. Obama’s upbringing.
“Some people thought it was racist — I thought that was a joke, since he was brought up by a white mother, a white grandfather, went to white schools, and most of this he learned from white people,” Mr. Giuliani said in the interview. “This isn’t racism. This is socialism or possibly anti-colonialism.”
Anti-colonialism: So Obama is being accused of not wanting to take over other countries.
