“When Obama first took office, Americans were overwhelmingly optimistic about bridging the country’s racial divide. A Gallup poll taken the day after Obama secured the presidency in 2008 showed that 70 percent of Americans believed race relations would improve.

After hearing for the past 50 years from the American Left about how we need to put racial differences behind us and just be "Americans", their most heralded, leftist president seems to take every opportunity he can to remind us all that we're divided into two groups: blacks and everybody else. And he's not taking my side. Ever.
