Obama Era Race Relations

Have race relations improved in the Obama era?

When Obama was elected in 2008, wasn't America declared to be "post-racial," thanks to savior Obama delivering us from evil?

Well, Obama has done nothing to unite the country. I have no memory of a more intentionally divisive president, stoking flames of racial conflict.

Obama had an incredible opportunity to encourage minorities to take responsibility for the direction of their lives. He squandered that. It's possible he never intended to be a role model, to take his historic position and make things better.

His first summer in office, he revealed that he had far more in common with professional race-baiters Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton than an American leader like Abraham Lincoln. Obama's reckless racially charged statements about an incident in Cambridge resulted in the utterly embarrassing "Beer Summit." Obama stumbled and bumbled, proving he wasn't the brilliant man he was made out to be. He wasn't wise. He was a run-of-the-mill agitator, bent on dividing to hold on to political power.

From MRC TV:

MRCTV's Dan Joseph went to one of the national "Justice for Trayvon' Rallies in Washington DC and asked participants whether they thought race relations in the United State have improved or gotten worse, since President Obama took office.

The consensus seems to be race relations are worse in the U.S., but it's not Obama's fault. He bears no responsibility whatsoever.

His followers give him a pass on absolutely everything. He can do no wrong. Ever.
