Obama Divider in Chief: 2007 Video Shows Obama Racially Charged Speech, Blames Katrina Disaster on Racism

Enough billions of dollars went to New Orleans to be able to pave the streets in Gold.... but Obama says that there was not enough money that went to New Orleans and he says it was because of Racism.... I guess he didn't realize that there were lots of white and even rich people who were killed in New Orleans. He is no uniter... he is the great divider. He is a chip off of the old block of his mentor Jeremiah Wright

from the Daily Caller:

In a video obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, then-presidential candidate Barack Obama tells an audience of black ministers, including the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, that the U.S. government shortchanged Hurricane Katrina victims because of racism.
“The people down in New Orleans they don’t care about as much!” Obama shouts in the video, which was shot in June of 2007 at Hampton University in Virginia. By contrast, survivors of Sept. 11 and Hurricane Andrew received generous amounts of aid, Obama explains. The reason? Unlike residents of majority-black New Orleans, the federal government considers those victims “part of the American family.”
The racially charged and at times angry speech undermines Obama’s carefully-crafted image as a leader eager to build bridges between ethnic groups. For nearly 40 minutes, using an accent he almost never adopts in public, Obama describes a racist, zero-sum society, in which the white majority profits by exploiting black America. The mostly black audience shouts in agreement. The effect is closer to an Al Sharpton rally than a conventional campaign event.
