Robert Reich: "I have nothing against white male construction workers"

Showing once again how fine the line is between "progressive" and "outright anti-white racist", former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich said this in his congressional testimony on January 7 (video at the link):

I am concerned, as I’m sure many of you are, that these jobs not simply go to high-skilled people who are already professionals or to white male construction workers. … I have nothing against white male construction workers. I’m just saying that there are a lot of other people who have needs as well. … Criteria can be set so that the money does go to others, the long term unemployed minorities, women, people who are not necessarily construction workers or high-skilled professionals.

Switching the races/genders around to help "progressives" and "liberals" see the problem with his ideas is left as an exercise.

Note also, of course, that many low-skilled construction workers are illegal aliens from Mexico, and the corrupt Mexican government would be a major beneficiary under Reich's plan as it would keep many of their nationals employed in the U.S. and sending money home to Mexico. Perhaps Reich should reconsider his citizenship options.

UPDATE: See also "Obama adviser: White males need not apply" (link). His closeness to Obama isn't known; a search at and doesn't show much, but he's identified as an advisor to Obama here among other places, and the included image is from here and was taken July 28, 2008. I also included a video which suffers from sensationalism but which is currently burning up Youtube's politics front page.

UPDATE 2: Apparently I'm a nobody! On January 24, Riech posted " An Open Letter to Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Michelle Malkin" about this incident ( The last responds here. If he'd included me in the list, I would have read his letter and responded, but since he didn't I won't.

12/23/11 UPDATE: The video that was here (ID opxuUj6vFa4) was removed by Youtube "due to a trademark claim by a third party". I attached another clip of Reich's remarks.

Listen to savage nation he will tell you more, but yes no money for whites is a great idea; and all the money needs to go to black's and yellows and brown boys, keep whites from getting paid and take the white kids out of school and lets do some mass rape gang thing, put all the white males in prison for being white and put all the white woman up for auction and you can make alot of money doing that for our god obama, did i forget anything? the new deal can work with good ideals!!@!! stop prison rape! we live in the madhouse and its only just the start. to all whites AND ALL PEOPLE think it can't happen to you, listen the Savage Nation!

the next move by the head tailless primate is to tax whites out of homes and jobs and to remove laws that would stop mass murder. its coming boys many of you just don't see it for now but you will. much love
