Obama Warns of 'Quiet Riot' Among Blacks

If this is not a call for incite to riot I don't know what is! 
Will he take responsibility when blacks decide to take him literally and start breaking things again? Or will he, once again, blame Bush?
This doom and gloom rhetoric is disgusting, but oh so typical of the Democrats.  They love to stir up hate.  Instead of offering a message of hope and opportunity and encouragement to make a run for the American Dream, they focus on the negative, the whining and bad.  They relish it and wallow in it.  
If there are more blacks in prison than in college whose fault is that??? Bush's?  The Democrats have been calling on Iraqis to stand up and take responsibility for their future, but they won't do the same right here in America. No, in America they tell their followers they NEED big government to look after them and take care of them and protect them and feed them and fix their owees...

HAMPTON, Va. (AP) - Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama said Tuesday that the Bush administration has done nothing to defuse a "quiet riot" among blacks that threatens to erupt just as riots in Los Angeles did 15 years ago.

The first-term Illinois senator said that with black people from New Orleans and the Gulf Coast still displaced 20 months after Hurricane Katrina, frustration and resentments are building explosively as they did before the 1992 riots.

"This administration was colorblind in its incompetence," Obama said at a conference of black clergy, "but the poverty and the hopelessness was there long before the hurricane.

"All the hurricane did was to pull the curtain back for all the world to see," he said.

Obama's criticism of Bush prompted ovation after ovation from the nearly 8,000 people gathered in Hampton University's Convocation Center, particularly when he denounced the Iraq war and noted that he had opposed it from the outset.

Repeatedly, he referred to the riots that erupted in Los Angeles after a jury acquitted four police officers of assault charges in the 1991 beating of Rodney King, a black motorist, after a high speed chase. Fifty-five people died and 2,000 were injured in several days of riots in the city's black neighborhoods.

"Those 'quiet riots' that take place every day are born from the same place as the fires and the destruction and the police decked out in riot gear and the deaths," Obama said. "They happen when a sense of disconnect settles in and hope dissipates. Despair takes hold and young people all across this country look at the way the world is and believe that things are never going to get any better."

He argued that once a hurricane hits or a jury renders a not guilty verdict, "the frustration is there for all to see."  Full Story
