Children's Book about Obama Claims White People 'Would Never Vote for a Black President'

This book complies with the new "Common Core Standards" that are being pushed forward in states all across the country. In order to comply with the new standards, local school districts have begun to introduce new books and curriculum into their teaching.

This particular book makes the hasty generalization that all white voters would have refused to vote for Obama because of his race. It continues to say that Obama made race a part of his campaign, and that is why he won.

"But some people said Americans weren't ready for that much change. Sure Barack was a nice fellow, they said. But white voters would never vote for a black president," the book claims. "Other angry voices were raised. Barack's former pastor called the country a failure. God would damn the United States for mistreating its black citizens, he said."

The book, approved for children as young as seven years old, also goes on to specifically mention controversial comments made by President Obama’s former pastor Jeremiah Wright, while also claiming that the president has worked to bring whites and blacks together.

The book’s comments were brought to the attention of the “Moms Against Duncan” Facebook page, a group of parents and education activists opposed to U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan who recently claimed that “white suburban moms” only opposed Common Core because it showed that their children weren’t as smart as they thought, attempting to paint the nation-wide backlash against the curriculum as a race based issue.

“Would it have been possible for him to be elected (twice) without the support of vast numbers of white Americans?” one member stated.

The book appears to follow the viewpoint that all opposition to the president is based purely on race, which has reached near-comedic levels in its absurdity. Some are now even claiming that opposition to Obamacare is pure racism, despite 55 percent of the public being opposed to its disastrous roll out as millions get dropped from their current providers.

The book raises even more questions over what exactly children are being taught through the Common Core approved curriculum, which has continued to produce inaccurate and highly questionable material.
This is not the first time we have seen new books introduced to comply with Common Core Standards have subversive political agendas. Just last month there was a story that detailed a textbook being used in Texas that literally rewrote the Constitution.
