Obama to Black College: Successful People are Nothing but Lucky

Last week, Barack Obama gave the commencement address at Howard University, a historically black college. Instead of congratulating these hardworking students on their educational drive, Obama took the opportunity to say that success has more to do with luck than work. Of course, undertones of “white privilege” are constantly present.

“We have cousins and uncles and brothers and sisters who we remember were just as smart and just as talented as we were, but somehow got ground down by structures that are unfair and unjust,” he said.

That brought the President to his thoughts on success being more a result of luck than hard work.

“And that means we have to not only question the world as it is,” Obama intoned, “and stand up for those African Americans who haven’t been so lucky–because, yes, you’ve worked hard, but you’ve also been lucky.”

As an aside, the President of the United States then told his audience of his “pet peeve.”

“That’s a pet peeve of mine — people who have been successful and don’t realize they’ve been lucky. That God may have blessed them; it wuddn’t nothin’ you did. So don’t have an attitude.”

From the poor grammar, vocabulary, and message, one wouldn’t think that this could possibly be the leader of The United States.

Unfortunately, it is.

Here is a man who criticizes the American Dream, speaks in a dialect unbefitting of his office, and claims that, while White Americans are “just lucky” that Muslims are the fabric of America. Only eight more months until this man finally fades back into obscurity.

Good riddance.
