IMAGINE THAT, WORRIES OF RACE RELATIONS REACH NEW HIGH UNDER OBAMA …
According to a recent Gallup poll, concerns and worries regarding race relations are at a new high in the United States. Under Barack Obama, the first elected black president, race relation have gotten worse. Go figure, seeing that he was pretty much elected due to white guilt and the misguided and naive notion that some how electing an individual because of their skin color would solve all the ills of the past and make things better. What did Martin Luther King Jr. say about it not being about the color of ones skin, but “the content of their character?”
But this is what happens when an ignorant and apathetic electorate votes for what might be the most divisive president of the 20th and 21st century. A note to Obama, you could have learned a lot from how South African president Nelson Mandela dealt with racism and a divided nation. Sadly, you are not even close to the character of Mandela. This is what happens when you elect a community agitator, not a leader.
More than a third (35%) of Americans now say they are worried “a great deal” about race relations in the U.S. — which is higher than at any time since Gallup first asked the question in 2001. The percentage who are worried a great deal rose seven percentage points in the past year and has more than doubled in the past two years.
Concern about race relations over the past two years has increased among Republicans and Democrats, conservatives and liberals, and blacks and whites. But the gap between the groups who were already most worried before 2015 — Democrats, liberals and blacks — and those less worried has not shrunk, and in some cases has widened. Of particular note is the 53% to 27% “worried” gap between blacks and whites, up from the 31% to 14% gap between blacks and whites in the 2012-2014 combined polls.
