....‘White Part of Me is Racist’
WHOOPI GOLDBERG: Mr. President, if you don’t mind me asking, is the white part of you a racist?
OBAMA: Of course it is, Whoopi. But he can’t help himself. Heck, we now know that racism is inherent in all white people. We’ve learned that from Chris Matthews.
OBAMA: Well, Joy, it can still be difficult. I mean, imagine having racist thoughts about African Americans and then seeing one looking back at you in the mirror. It can be terrifying.
JOY: Oh, Mr. President, I’m so sorry. I wasn’t aware that you’ve had to cope ….
OBAMA: Now, don’t pity me, Joy. Do you pity Klan members or Fox News employees? Because a part of me is no different than they are.
WHOOPI: Mr. President, what about your children?
OBAMA: Well, I have a love hate relationship with them. Obviously, the black part of me cherishes them, but the white part of me can be very passive aggressive. The other day I asked Malia to run and get me a piece of Nicorette Gum When she got up I put my foot out and tripped her.
JOY: Oh no, Mr. President!
OBAMA: It’s what white folks do, Joy. Heck, you’re white. You know what I’m talking about.
