Six-years into the presidency of Barack Obama, a majority of Americans think race relations in this country are worse than they have ever been.
And perhaps they are.
A recent poll stated that 53 percent of Americans believe race relations between blacks and whites have deteriorated under Obama’s watch.
All I can say in regards to the poll is this: Welcome to the club! And what the heck is wrong with the other 47 percent of you?
All of this was clearly predictable.
Perhaps this is what you should come to expect when you seek to elect a man such as Barack Obama, a “community organizer,” a man who has made a career out of race baiting in his own city.
Many of us said so at the time.
And this is the sort of thing you will also get from Hillary Clinton.
If Hillary is elected, she will be the country’s first woman president.
And if you think the allegations of male privilege and sexism are bad now, just wait until Hillary has spent a couple of years in office!
Hillary will have us convinced that every male in America is a wife beater and potential rapist and that every woman in America will soon be required to wear a burka.
These, too, are exactly the sort of tactics that Hillary has employed throughout her career.
If race relations in America are truly getting worse in America, then you have to place most of the blame at the president’s feet, not because Obama’s black, but because he and his party constantly seek to exploit it.
And they are not alone.
The remainder of the blame must also go to the irresponsible members of the mainstream media, blood-thirsty jackals who deliberately and unjustly portray any legitimate policy differences with the president as evidence of racism.
It is no wonder that every grand jury or trial verdict has to be seen through the prism of white vs. black.
And Obama has done absolutely nothing to diffuse this idea!
Moreover, throughout his presidency, Obama has made every effort to extinguish the embers of racism by throwing gasoline upon them.
Obama is a man whose own Justice Department refused to prosecute members of the New Black Panthers, armed with clubs, thugs who stood outside a Philadelphia polling place in order to intimidate approaching white voters.
This is a man who travels the globe, apologizing for our past acts of slavery, bowing to dictators, and telling the world that America is not much different from them in regards to human rights abuse.
This is a man who interjected himself into the Trayvon Martin case, a tragic case that had absolutely nothing to do with white vs. black.
The actions of the president are shameful.
Those who seek to occupy the Oval Office have a traditional and sacred responsibility to appeal to, as Abraham Lincoln called it, our “better angels,” not our worst fears.
Six-years of empirical evidence has shown America that Obama never had any interest in that.
Recently, one of America’s finest actors, Morgan Freeman, said that the best way to improve race relations in America is to “just stop talking about it.”
If Obama wanted to improve race relations in America, he could do it in much the same way that Ronald Reagan lifted a country from the mire of doubt and malaise.
Reagan believed in and sought to encourage the very best instincts in everyday Americans.
Obama could use his office as a bully-pulpit for encouraging young black men and women to stay away from pre-marital sex, which leads to unwed births, a condition that universally leads to poverty in both the black and white communities.
But most of all, if he truly wanted to improve race relations in America, Obama would just simply state that his own presidential election is perhaps the best evidence to prove that America isn’t a racist country.
And if Obama would behave and speak like he truly believed it, and the media would collectively shut their mouths about the issue, then maybe most Americans would too.
