Like so many in Obama’s seedy Chicago world, the man quoted in this video is not well known but travels in the top circles of influence. Quintin E. Primo III is CEO of Capri Capital Partners, a Chicago-based firm with $2.7 billion in real estate holdings, some in Saudi Arabia. With a net worth of $300 million, Primo made Forbes magazine’s list of “The Wealthiest Black Americans,” many of whom are close, longtime advisers to Barack Obama. Business Week has reported that Primo, Obama alter ego Valerie Jarrett, and several others were bound together by “Ujamaa, a Swahili word for “extended family” that embodies “the value of sharing work and wealth through business relationships.” In English, that translates to cronyism. Jarrett has said Primo is reclusive, a “phantom.” But as this video shows, he opened up to the New York Times, advising young people to leave the country:
Q. What’s your best career advice to young graduates?
A. Three words: leave the country. Get out of here. That’s what I tell everybody — just go. I don’t care where you go, just go.
A. Because the world is changing. It is no longer acceptable to speak only English if you are 25 and younger. It’s unacceptable. You have little chance of being successful if you speak only one language.
If you don’t understand Islam, you’re in trouble because Islam comprises somewhere between 1.6 billion and 1.8 billion people, and there are markets that are untapped that need to be tapped. (Emphasis added.)
He concluded by saying, “There is nothing more important…You have to leave the country.”
So, Obama’s close friend advises that the best way for young people to get ahead in Obama’s America is to leave the country, learn a foreign language, adopt a foreign culture, and study Islam. Is there a more perfect portrait of this administration?
