Unearthed: Young Obama took racial swipe at Colin Powell

President Obama took an apparent racial swipe at Colin Powell in a 1994 NPR interview in which he implied the four-star general is acceptable to “white America.”

In the same interview, Obama advocates that the government should provide jobs for every citizen and prenatal care for all women.

Obama in 1994 was a community organizer and lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School.

WND unearthed an Oct. 28, 1994, interview the future president gave to NPR in response to political scientist Charles Murray’s controversial book “The Bell Curve,” which argues that there are racial differences in intelligence.
