Skin Like "Ours"?

How did I miss this presumptive comment from GWB?

“There’s a lot of people in the world who don’t believe that people whose skin color may not be the same as ours can be free and self-govern. I reject that. I reject that strongly. I believe that people who practice the Muslim faith can self-govern. I believe that people whose skins aren’t necessarily — are a different color than white can self-govern.”

Last time I checked, not every American (including me) has white skin. Perhaps wishful thinking?
