When Barack Obama was elected I was unhappy as a Republican, but I thought, “How wonderful; America has elected an African-American President.” I thought that this would end the destructive “race-baiters” that showed up at every opportunity to scream “racial prejudice” or “the legacy of slavery!” I thought if he did nothing else I would favor, Obama would tamp down this awful, destructive, and untrue practice. Could I possibly have been more wrong?
I cannot remember worse national publicity about racial relations in the USA since the Rodney King Riots. Obama is a divider, not the uniter he promised to be. Of all of his failed “hope and change” nonsense, this failure was the most egregious! His efforts to divide are strictly politically motivated. I not sure I could voice a more profane epithet!

Are some Americans racists? Among 319,000,000 unique individuals found anywhere on Planet Earth, then, of course, some will be racist. It is a given. But the truth is that racism in America has become far less prevalent than when I was a boy. The following statistics and quote from Greg Jones shows how far America has come – and without the “help” of Barack Hussein Obama. (And, with regard to the “Hussein” in his name, can anyone remember worse public relations between non-Muslim and Muslim Americans before Obama became President?)
“Consider, for example, that in 1958 a mere 4 percent of Americans approved of interracial marriage. By 2013, that number had grown to 87 percent. In 2012 these once-taboo unions hit an all-time high.
Ku Klux Klan membership has shrunk drastically from millions a century ago to fewer than 5,000 today. The Black Panthers are essentially extinct. While plenty of other hate groups have attempted to fill the void, they have always operated on the margins of society. Black politicians are now common—President Obama’s percentage of the white vote was almost perfectly in line with that received by other recent Democrats, all of whom were white.
Granted, these statistics offer but a snapshot of American society, but the more one looks, the more a trend emerges. America is a lot of things; racist isn’t one of them.”
