President Obama was asked about “dealing with white privilege” on Tuesday during an interview with Fusion and he didn’t bat an eye, leaving little doubt about whether he supports the theory.
“The killings of Michael Brown, Eric Garner and Trayvon Martin clearly shows that we don’t live in a post-racial society that many expected when you were elected,” host Jorge Ramos said. “But many people expected you to do more on race relations, dealing with white privilege. Do you get angry with this, is it your responsibility?”
Obama said he didn’t expect to live in a post-racial world upon being elected, but did say there is “more equality” now than when he came into office, adding that there has been improvement over the years in race relations.
“I think that if you talk to younger people — your daughter, my daughters — their attitudes absolutely are better when it comes to race,” he said.
Ever the divider, Obama said he has been “subjected” to discrimination in the past.
“I think it would be pretty hard to grow up in the United States of America without having any experiences of discrimination,” the president said.
