“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Obama discounts hard work, tells black students "You're just lucky"

This weekend at Howard University's commencement, President Obama doubled down on his infamous "you didn't build that" remarks of 2012. He told the graduates to "be confident in your blackness" whatever that means, and to "stand up for those African Americans who haven’t been so lucky — because, yes, you’ve worked hard, but you’ve also been lucky."

Yeah, lucky enough to have an establishment who values your skin color far more than your work ethic. 

As a liberal, Obama believes that any accomplishment or accumulation of wealth is based on winning life's lottery, chance, good fortune. Liberals never give credit to hard work, good life choices, and nose-to-the-grindstone determination. 

That's where the idiotic phrase "those less fortunate among us" and "giving back" came from, the delusional notion that nobody is responsible for their own life's outcome. That the fickle hand of fate chooses winners and losers and therefor the winners owe what they have to the losers.....out of fairness or some fantasy that society gave you something that it didn't give everybody else, so you owe it to society to return it. It's almost always simply giving, not giving back. 

By conscious decision, I never call people "less fortunate" or use the phrase "give back", precisely because I don't want to add to the myth that hard work, sound decision making, and long-term goals didn't have everything to do with why I didn't become a drug-dealing bum.
