Obama - Dreams from My Father
4:10 into the video: "The point I was making was not that my grandmother harbors any racial animosity - she doesn't. But she is a typical white person who... if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know there's a reaction in her that's been bred into our experiences that don't go away, and that sometimes come out in the wrong way." Barack Obama
I would NEVER make a statement about another person and say "she's a typical black person" or "he's a typical mexican" or "she's a typical Italian". And if I did... especially using certain adjectives, I would be called a racist. I call it the way it is... if I can't say these things without being called a racist... then that rule applies to everyone else.
