Nothing is better as a result of Obama as president. Race riots in the Midwest last year brought the country back down to the 1990s, and 1960s. Blacks should be happy that the US twice elected a black president, but they were not. Instead that apparently embolden them to go in for the kill. After the seeming success of the lgbt, the blacks took a turn at trying their luck. Unfortunately, they protest with more third world type of violence, compared to the more sophisticated protests of the lgbt.
If history is a judge, then race relations to be improved, then the race has to show less violence and more progress. That is my opinion.
