Ben Kinchlow, a noted African-American religious leader and political commentator, has issued a strong rebuke to President Obama over a planned speech to commemorate the MLK’s March on Washington anniversary.
According to an article published in the Washington Post this week, Obama is planning to speak on how achieving economic equality is the best way to attain “racial justice.”
Kinchlow said it’s simply not the government’s job to meddle with economic “equality.”
“It is not the government’s responsibility to rectify the economic situation in this country, it’s the government responsibility to make sure that there is no legal barriers to economic progress and there are no legal barriers to economic progress in the United States!” Kinchlow told WND on Tuesday.
“We need to celebrate what we’ve done and not just keep harping on all things that are incorrect and improper,” Kinchlow elaborated.
The ordained minister believes that the reason for the economic disparity between races in this country is not due to institutionalized barriers, but has more to do with the high rate of African-Americans dropping out of school.
