A “racist backlash” so severe he was re-elected comfortably last November. Seriously, what kind of drivel is this passed off as a news story?
When he became president, Obama blasted through a heavy barrier that many before him had only pushed against. But his presidency has been marred by racist backlash and his administration has found itself refighting battles already thought won, such as ensuring equal access to the polls.
Where exactly is this racist backlash? The so-called reporter doesn’t explain this. Judging by her Twitter feed she appears more an agitator than reporter. She also does not explain how there is not equal access at the polls. Is this a reference to voter ID laws, which are overwhelmingly supported across the nation? She apparently cannot grasp the fact that opposition to bad policy is not racist. Fifty years to the day of Martin Luther King’s speech and it’s garbage like this that sets race relations back, not opposition to a failed president.
