The title of the video says 2006 but it should probably be 2007 (August 2007?).
While Obama is talking at this event he references campaigning in Austin, Texas (which took place in Feb. 2007) which he states was about six months ago. Furthermore, I don’t think that he was campaigning for president in 2006.
It appears that this fundraising event took place in Prosper, Texas.
At any rate, I agree with almost everything (not everything 100%) Obama says in this 2007 fundraiser.
It appears that only 800 or so people have ever viewed this video online.
The fundraiser itself appears to have been attended by a combination of both white and black Americans (there may have been more blacks than whites).
One of the only things that I disliked a little about the video (aside from the video playing sideways) was the guy towards the end (a white guy? possibly named Walter?) who brings up “rights” (or what he says is not a right).
I agree with Obama that rights are what we decide are rights.
My personal opinion is that if there is a god I don’t think that when he created us humans that he was thinking about Due Process and Freedom of Speech. But if he was then why did it take thousands (or millions?) of years for man to attain these rights?
Rights are what we decide are rights.
I also believe that some “rights” that we enjoy (I think) as Americans are not written in the US Constitution. One example is that of private property. Does the US Constitution stipulates that we have a right to (including to purchase) private property.
