Geraldo: Obama Difficulties Proves America Was Not Ready for Black President

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Outnumbered,” network regular Geraldo Rivera theorized President Barack Obama’s difficulties in bringing the country together on issues like guns and terror is a result of “the nation was not ready for a black president.”

Rivera  said, “I think, and his is just strictly my Constitutionally protected opinion—I know you get mad at me but I think this—I think what is clear is that the nation was not ready for a black president. And I think the gross divisions we suffer right now in this country are, when you strip away everything else, the gun rights, terror and all the rest of it—what you have essentially is a nation divided between white people and everybody else in broad strokes. When you look at the groups that overwhelmingly favor the Democrats right now, the Asians, Hispanics, African-Americans, the Muslims, you see a nation where people are largely chosen up sides and if you strip away everything else, what you are going to find is a racial divide. It is biggest, unaddressed issue. I think it is why we can’t deal with urban crime. It is why we are dysfunctional in terms of the ability to be bilateral, bicameral, bipartisan.”
