Bolling: Race Relations Have Not Gotten Better Under Obama
On “Cashin’ In” today, Eric Bolling said it’s been quite a week for race relations in America, which have not improved under the first African American president.
Bolling noted that the Ferguson grand jury decision sparked riots, looting, destruction of property and mayhem, only to be followed by the grand jury blowing the decision in the NYPD chokehold death.
“Don't get me wrong, I’m a huge supporter of law enforcement, but that grand jury blew it,” Bolling said. “No one should die for selling a cigarette for a buck. Nobody.”
He said that in the ensuing protests in New York, Missouri and around the country, black leaders predictably were front and center, race-baiting and adding fuel to the fire.
But what Bolling said he was surprised by were the other “leaders,” from the St. Louis Rams players who made a “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture at a recent NFL game to New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, who made a mockery of the office by claiming Garner died due to "centuries of racism."
“Our president and our attorney general, no help whatsoever,” Bolling said, adding that sensible black leaders and athletes like Ben Carson and Charles Barkley were ignored primarily because they weren't stoking the race flames.
“Unfortunately, folks, race relations in America haven’t improved under our first African American president,” Bolling said.
“Am I wrong? I wish I was. That’s not racist of me to say. It's just an obvious observation, one I pray changes for the better and soon.”
