It’s a resounding victory at that considering he and his party’s intention is fomenting racial hatred and animosity 24/7/365. All you had to do was watch two minutes of the ugly spectacle in Washington on Wednesday and you couldn’t possibly come away thinking anything has improved since he’s occupied the White House.
The nation’s first black president has failed to improve race relations, with just 10 percent believing that President Obama has helped to foster a better black-white relationship, according to a new poll timed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I have a dream” speech.
More frustrating for African Americans is how the president has burst their 2009 bubble of hope that he would do something bold on race.
Rasmussen Reports, in a poll out Thursday, said that right before Inauguration Day 2009, 75 percent of the nation’s blacks believed Obama’s election signaled a new era in race relations.
Today, said Rasmussen, just 4 percent of African Americans believe black-white relations have improved under Obama.
Yet given the opportunity they’d all still vote for him.
