Skip to comments.The widening racial divide of the Obama era

Contrary to the expectations of most pundits, the election of Barack Obama has aggravated the racial divide in America between blacks and all other racial groups.

Posting this is racist. /s
And Obama will use the race and ethnicity card in the 2012 election in ways that have never been seen in this nation. It will deeply divide and Balkanize the country for many years to come.
Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton have been elated over having hussein as the new torch bearer in carrying on the progrom against whitey.
Rush predicted this even before Obama’s immaculation.
At the time, I said he would set back race relations 50 years.
Disagree with the author's conclusions. Blacks support Obama because he is a black Democrat. Blacks have the highest unemployment rates, 16.2% U-3 rates and much higher using U-6 rates. Inner city unemployment is approaching 50%. The rates were much lower under Bush. If the author deems economic interests to be just welfare payments, then he might have a case. I still believe most people prefer a job.
Superb graphic. Should be posted in every workplace in America.
I thought so too until Colonel Allen West came on the scene.
I said to myself there is NO WAY i’d vote for a black guy for dog catcher after watching this marxist fool.
Colonel West would be a fantastic V.P. or Sec. of Def.and eventually President with a little more experience.
If this analysis is anywhere close to accurate, and I believe it is, Obama is toast in 2012, no matter who the Republican nominee turns out to be. That's something I've believed for some time and why I'm convinced that nominating a conservative Republican candidate for president, one that will govern as a conservative and not immediately be co-opted by the Washington leftist establishment, is crucial. It is why I will support Sarah Palin as the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, if she chooses to run, as I hope she will. We need a real conservative in the White House, not another RINO. The time is now.
It’s not his election that caused any racial divide, it’s Obama’s attitude and that of his followers since the election.
I love West. He is who America needs. I have followed him for awhile now and am very impressed.
No one on the right believed that Obama would "heal the racial divide," and Obama's far-left constituency knew it wouldn't because they don't want it healed. They want it exacerbated and widened because it is the source of their power.
The only people who believed this were liberal thumb-suckers and magic thinkers, which catagory includes pretty much every liberal in fantasy world of the main-stream media.
If the author deems economic interests to be just welfare payments, then he might have a case. I still believe most people prefer a job. ..................................................... Can you imagine SEIU trying to organize welfare recipients into a Union and then demand higher payments? There are people out there who make a living out of welfare, its their own private family business and they got it down pat.
Even though, as a staunch believer in the Founder's wisdom, I found bHo to be a Marxist and a destroyer of the Founders vision, I thought at least the bridge between the races could change from a narrow toll bridge (tolls being reparations) to a strong bridge showing the way that ANYONE of ANY race can reach the top in this country.
I could not have been more wrong on ALL counts other than he is a Marxist. It was based upon Hope and as we have seen, anyone including myself who bought into to that UNDEFINED HOPE was hoodwinked.
This entire administration has not only given the excuse merchants more excuses but given certain minorities cover and in many high profile cases has shown a complete disregard towards any white person in our judicial system.
Now that minorities have discovered the muslime in chief will give them a pass, they have come out of the shadows and fully exposed themselves as the REAL racists in this decade.
While I did not vote for this vile hater of America, I give my full Mea Culpa regarding the prospects of better race relations.
I don’t quite understand your comment as it relates to my post. Alan West and Tim Scott are great black conservatives. They are exceptions when it comes to the overall black population that voted 95% for Obama. In order for Obama to get reelected he must turn out the black vote in large numers and with the same percentages of the vote. He will also try to energize the Hispanic vote that went 65-35 for him. Obama will try to make the 2012 elections about minorities versus the rich, white man dominated GOP.
Welfare is an existence, not a living.
I support Saracuda for president. If not then either her or COlonel West for Sec. of State. It would be such a change to have an avidly proAmerican there to cheer for our side for a change. Not to mention clean house of oh so many antiAmerican scum in that Dept.
