Allegations of Barack Obama’s plantation mentality are not new, at least not here. However they may be new to the main stream media, from Politico :
A former employee of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) on Wednesday compared the workplace atmosphere to a “plantation,” because of how black employees such as himself were treated.
In the third House Financial Services subcommittee hearing to address claims of discrimination  against the CFPB, Kevin Williams , a former quality assurance monitor at the agency, painted a picture where black employees were constantly belittled – even to the point where they were stereotypically offered fried chicken at company lunches.
“I was a charter member in the intake unit, which, indeed, came to be referred to as the ‘plantation,'” Williams testified. “There, I personally witnessed and was the victim of racial discrimination perpetrated by black as well as white managers. The unit was dubbed the ‘plantation,’ because when we started, the majority of black employees were assigned to intake, which was basically data entry.”
I will note that as long a the black population keeps voting their plantation masters into power, they will never escape the democrat plantation.
