Fox Celebrates MLK Day By Accusing Obama Of Setting Back Race Relations In America

Here's how they celebrate the MLK holiday over at Fox.

If anyone was wondering how they'd spend the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday over at Faux "news," we got our answer on this Monday's Outnumbered -- by attacking our first black president for supposedly making race relations worse in the United States -- I assume by having the nerve to get elected president while black.

Co-host Andrea Tantaros did manage to "give credit" to President Obama for getting married and his parenting skills (how terribly generous of her) but that was it before she went on the attack.

From Raw Story: Slavery? Jim Crow? Fox host says ‘race relations are worse than they ever have been’ on MLK Day:

On the Martin Luther King Jr. Day edition of Out Numbered, Tantaros noted that Obama’s election was a “huge moment for the African-American community, and to his credit, whether you agree with what President Obama believes or not, you have to admit, he has done a lot of good.”

“He gives a very aspirational goal for a lot of young black men,” she remarked. “I think he’s a terrific role model, at least as a father and a good husband. I know people don’t want to hear that.”

“What I will not give him credit for is he said that he was going to heal this country, and I think a lot of people expected something different,” the Fox News host continued. “I didn’t because I read all his books and knew where he was going to go, and divide the country, and that’s how he’s advanced his career.”

“I think race relations are worse than they ever have been.”

Conservative radio host David Webb argued that it was dangerous to “put too much hope in any one man.”

“Why? Because one figure won’t change it,” Webb said.

“He has changed it,” Tantaros insisted. “He’s not just one figure, he’s the president of the United States, and he’s changed it for the worse.” Read on...
