Gingrich: Racism Got Worse Under Obama

President Obama, the country’s first African-American president, has widened the racial divide during his eight years in office, Newt Gingrich claimed Thursday.

According to Breitbart News, the former House speaker also accused Obama’s first attorney general, Eric Holder, of worsening the problem. “I think a lot of their approach heightened that racial tension, and I think we have to oppose white racism,” he explained on Fox News.

Responding to a video posted on Facebook Live that depicted four black men assaulting a mentally-ill white man, Gingrich declared: “We also have to oppose black racism, and if this had been done to a African-American by four whites, there would be no question it was a hate crime.” The former speaker argued that the United States is “at the edge of a terrible period.”

Citing the ongoing violence on the streets of one Midwest city, Gingrich told Fox News: “There have been nearly 4,000 people shot in Chicago with no effective response from Mayor Emanuel and no effective response from President Obama. I think people feel that they’re really alienated from their government, and you have no one to turn to, and you end up with this really destructive, and I think frightening, kind of development.”

Gingrich was a Republican congressman from Georgia who held the top position in the House of Representatives in the 1990s.
