MSNBC Blames Racist Motives for White Opposition to Big Government


Opposition to ObamaCare and other government programs is based on the racism of whites who want to deny help to blacks even though it is whites who would most benefit, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi and his guest contended on his Saturday morning show.

“Racism is something that has defined the United States since its very founding,” Velshi declared, asserting that “white people... often make decisions that are not in their economic interests or work against their own prosperity because they feel like giving other people, in this case black people, certain rights and privileges will take away some of their own.”

Guest Heather McGhee, on to plug her book, ‘The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together,’ argued “white people are actually the largest group of the uninsured and yet ever since the Affordable Care Act was signed by our first black president, the majority of white people have disapproved of the pretty modest idea that is ObamaCare.” Her premise about misguided white people: “This idea that government is on the side of people of color and that is why there’s such a fierce anti-government skepticism and suspicion among the majority of white voters.”
