“This country has a Black president, but when you look at a Black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Arron told USA Today. “We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements, but we still have a long ways to go in the country. The bigger difference is that back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.”
Arron, who received loads of racist hate mail after he broke Babe Ruth’s home run record 40 years ago, knows what it’s like to be despised just for being black. And he found out again, when the comments above made him a target of more hate mail.
President Obama is a black man. That’s how I see him. And I don’t need to examine his Census form to know it’s true.
