I hope it’s not that bad.
I know that if he continues as he is, and if ACORN doesn’t steal the next election too, it will be a long time before America hires another black president.
You are right. This could be the ultimate expression of the failures of affirmative action.
In oh so many ways, Obama has set the civil rights movement back decades.
From his first days in office when his lack of executive experience and pie-in-the-sky policies became reality he was being judged not only as a President but as a black man.
Though, I have to wonder how he became solidly black when at the beginning of this presidential race other black leaders made it known he wasn’t black enough!!
As his popularity falls and his policies are not only questioned but openly disapproved of, other black politicians will have a difficult time proving they could or would perform better then Obama. That people WILL question the qualifications of other blacks running for public office is a shame.
Is there anything this man touches he does not intentionally or unintentionally destroy?
I don't think so. That barrier has been shattered and will make it easier for blacks to be elected potus. The electorate, however, won't get sucked into the "magic negro" myth ever again.
