An African-American professor at New York’s John Jay College of Criminal Justice has penned an essay which blames the failure of Obamacare on “southern White radicals.” Gloria J. Browne-Marshall, who teaches constitutional law courses at the university, recently posted her comments at the website Politics in Color as part of an essay entitled, “2013: A Year of Racial Challenges.” She also referred to George Zimmerman as a “White Latino” in her essay.
Browne-Marshall argued that the failure of Obamacare came not from the implementation or the plan itself, but rather racist white people in the south who were unwilling to hear the view points of an African-American President. “[S]outhern White radicals vowed to stop implementation of the Obama-care law, leading one to wonder if Tea Party members would oppose affordable healthcare if it came from a nonBlack [sic] President,” she wrote.
A webpage called “Race, Law, and American Society” also claims that Browne-Marshall has proven with her research that there is a “persistent legally sanctioned terrorism perpetrated by the majority culture against African Americans.” However, her department at John Jay does not list her curriculum vitae and the webpage does not indicate any school she attended.
It’s hardly just southern white people that are opposed to Obamacare, though. A CNN poll from two weeks ago shows that 62% of Americans now oppose the plan. More than 4.7 million Americans have had their health insurance cancelled as a result of the healthcare regime, but only 2.1 million Americans have signed up for Obamacare so far, many of whom have still not received ID numbers.
