Jarrett: Burden of Race Relations in America Not Obama’s ‘Responsibility’

Last week at the Aspen Institute’s Ideas Festival, President Barack Obama’s long-time senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said the burden of race relations in America should not be Obama’s “responsibility.”

When asked why Obama has not been more passionate about race Jarrett said, “I think you have to ask yourself, why is that all on him? Why is that his responsibility?”

In Obama’s defense, Jarrett said that in 2008 “he gave an amazing speech about race,” and touted the president’s My Brother’s Keeper program and task force created to strengthen community policing in minority communities.

She added, “Lets take the burden off of him solely because it is a collective responsibility.”
