Obama dostał się na Harvard, bo jest czarny?

Libertariański kandydat na wiceprezydenta, Wayne Allyn Root był razem z Obamą na roku nauk politycznych Columbia University. Udzielił Reason Magazine arcyciekawego wywiadu, w którym twierdzi, że nikt Obamy nie znał, bo musiał być zaangażowany w jakieś radykalne ruchy Black Power oraz że stawia milion dolarów, że jeśli Obama ujawni średnią to będzie gorsza od jego. Powiedział, że Obama dostał się na Harvard tylko dzięki akcji afirmatywnej, czyli z powodu koloru skóry.

"A vote for Obama is four years of Karl Marx, and no one should be happy about that," he told us and a few genial young libertarian activists over cocktails. "He's a communist! I don't care what anybody says. The guy's a communist.... And his mother was a card-carrying communist, and he says she's the most important person in his entire life; he learned everything from her."

When George Bush annoyed everyone the first thing they went to was how dumb he was, and they said how bad he did in Yale, and blah blah blah, he got a C average. Then they found his C average was better than Al Gore's average, and it was better than John Kerry's average!
(...)
Does anyone doubt that possibly Barack could have gotten into Harvard with a C average because he's black, where as I, white, couldn't get into the same school with a B-plus, A-minus average? And yet his wife says that America is a terrible nation unfair to minorities! I say, Au contraire!

And so my answer is, has America really been unfair to minorities? No it hasn't. It was unfair to me. A white butcher's kid, whose father had no money, but nobody gave me a break. And do I have a chip on my shoulder? You're damn right I do. And I represent millions and millions of poor people in this country who weren't lucky enough to be poor and black, they were unlucky enough to be poor and white, and they can't get into Harvard. So maybe that country Barack's fighting for, he's got the wrong country here. He's been just fine in this country. The rest of us need someone to defend them....

Dziwna sprawa, wątpie żeby MSM się za to wzięły. Sam nie jestem przekonany skąd Root mówi "his mother was a card-carrying communist" jak twierdzi, że jeszcze 5 lat temu nigdy o Obamie nie słyszał. Może wie od kogoś innego, a może bardzo dużo teoretyzuje. Tak czy inaczej numer z akcją afirmatywną pewnie prawdopodobny w świetle tego wywiadu.
