How much racism do you think President Obama's terms CREATED rather than cured? Did he help or hurt the overall cause of race relations ?
Never was enthralled w/ Obama in the least. Former President Obama was an ineffectual president. He concentrated on inane social justice instead of improving the economy. An intelligent president would put economic issues over social ones, don't you think?
As a result of Obama's presidency, many Black communities were worse off than ever. Black social pundits & others contend that President Obama did very little for Blacks in terms of improving their communities. Under President Obama, cities like Chicago & Detroit went into the hellish pits. President Obama wanted to be THE SOCIAL, POLITICALLY CORRECT president & look what happened to America as a result!
I don't think that former President Obama made racism worse at all. The issue was socioeconomics. He exacerbated the nanny state in America. He wanted a more socialistic form of government. He even raised minimum wage, wanting a more equal distribution of income, not realizing that minimum wage was a step up, not a career plan.
The only positive decent race related point that I can come up with for Pres. Obama was that he assumed his re-ignition of racism in America would work to incite from the ground up ,throughout the system .....an "if I ignite it it will work through the entire system much faster ." theory . other than that point , I believe his intent was to symbolically ' burn the city down' as fast and as much as he could in his possible eight years .
If so , That was his best and only accomplishment.
Obama was a social justice warrior queen, which is to say, he was a social Marxist. He made us look weak in front of Arab and Asian leaders, and that's something which Trump will absolutely repair. He literally didn't do anything worth doing, so far as I can tell. The most vicious lie in my lifetime was Obama's assault upon Libya, which he called a 'humanitarian mission.' Today all of North Africa is destabilized, and blacks are sold as slaves for around four hundred dollars. What an awful man.
Still is a SJW queen Marxist.
Obama did admit that Libya was his biggest mistake, for what it is worth, not a single dime. Hillary was his Secretary of State, who laughed and joked, "We came, we saw, he died," when told the report (on camera) of Qaddafi's cruel death. Such a cold heart.
Libya would be just fine if Qaddafi was still alive. But, the U.S. wanted the gold, and allowed the rise of radical extremists in Libya. Millions have been killed.
It is true that the black slave trade is ongoing in Libya, evil human trafficking. Nothing new.
The President of Africa stepped up to take actions to protect their citizens, after being called out on social media. Last report I read they had rescued over 400 people that were returned to Africa, but how many have been lost...and may never be returned home. Very sad.
Seems to be a reoccuring theme in this Hub Pages Forum.
Let me make it clear, race relations in America have never really been good. There are just times when for a brief period, one slice of time is less contentious than another.
"Good Race Relations" for the rightwinged white folks is where minorities take the inequitities and injustices and keep quiet about them? This is similar to all the NFL kneeling brohaha? Well, if that is your idea of improvement, I have a beachfront property in Colorado to sell you. And, you would probably buy it. America is still a place of racial contention, Obama or not, it always has been. So, ultimately, if we cannot have peace, neither will you. And from the correspondence and assessing the attitudes of so many on the Right, I am not encouraged about a change in this anytime within this century. So, there is my idea of great race relations.
I think that GOP economic policy is just so much bunk, promoting a natural oligarchy or plutocracy. So, to try to bring Obama down in regards to that is just so much BullS***. What did Obama inherit from GW Bush? Just like a earlier poster said, Trump is riding on economic improvement that resulted from Obama, since obviously the dirty GOP trickle down theories were an abject failure.
So, what has Trump done to improve things? NOTHING!!!
I so dislike having to be the wet blanket and so dour over the coming holidays. But, I am here to educate you and your rightwing buddies.
Trump is now riding the economic growth Obama created after he inherited almost a depression from Dubya.
Oh please , where do you come up with and why do you believe these lies.
He sadly maintained by raising the US debt more than all combined presidents before him--- ALL of them. Explain that or remain quiet.
Look at what Obama inherited, Horse. Then look at the economic growth which began during Obama's administration. I'm not gonna tell you to be quiet even if you ignore facts. I'm accustomed to your "fake" news as well. And at any rate, you have no right to tell me what to say on the forums.
You didn't answer the question , How did your hero not only spend more BUT borrow
more than every president in American history ? It's the mindless bias that the left constantly spews and never proves that irritates the entire world,
Still got your Obama credit card don't you ?
What did he spend it on, horse? He saved several auto industries and many more companies the jobs they provided for many Americans and their families. Do you even know what a mess Dubya left Obama? And you were more than likely a Dubya supporter back then. If you're worrying so much about the National Debt then are you for the Tax bill which evey economist says will add a least a trillion dollars to the debt? If not, why?
Why don't you use your brilliance in economics and explain to the world how our tax cuts "cost " you more money ?
Dude , No wonder you flunked math
All of the well-know economists have already done that for me, horse.. Try reading what they said instead of listening to Faux News and you'd already know this.
Gee horse, are my questions too complicated for you? I ask because you seem to avoid answering them. Coincidence?
Math lesson one 1+1 =2 , 2 - 1 = 1 which is less than the original 2 ?
That is the extent of a tax cut , tax cuts equal less taxes . They don't cost anybody anything , Next week lesson number 2--- will be what happens in an equation over 2.
I know tax cuts, cut into your liberal gimme entitlements but , maybe it's time to work on acquiring an income rather than rely on others .
The majority of the tax cuts go to the ultra rich, horse. They already have enough money to expand businesses which hire more people. This trickle down stuff has never worked and has only hurt our economy under previous right wing administrations. Why do you think the rich needs more money?
"Why do you think the rich needs more money?"
Better question is why you think you have any right whatsoever to what the rich (or anyone else) earned and owns? Because, like Obama, you know better than the owner does what should be done with their money?
Well Dan, I suppose you'd think it was okay if a few people had all of the money, which is going to happen if things keep going this way. Am I mistaken that our ancestors came to the New World to get away from such?
Does a refusal to answer mean "Yes. Yes, I think I have a right to take what other people own"?
And yes, you are mistaken as to the reason they came. Some to escape religious persecution (so that they could persecute others), some came as a business venture, some came involuntarily and populated a penal colony. Some came as slaves Precious few of the poor had the resources to escape that poverty.
Yes, a refusal to answer says a lot. I've dealt with big tobacco as a farmer for many years. Like many huge industries, they set the prices among themselves and only pay a few cents above the govt support price and none will go over. It's the same among the big poultry producers, Sanderson, Tyson, etc. When big business colludes they cause the smaller producers to go out of business because they cannot compete.
It's the same for other industries as well. How do we keep this from happening, Dan. When all of the money is controlled by a few--as is becoming the case even now--will you be satisfied?
Seriously dude ,did you just get out of high school or something ? I mean catch up will ya!
Seriously dude, do you think we take your opinion.......seriously? Answer the questions or stop asking them. Geeze!
Trickle down economics theory to a new liberal would seem like a rain storm putting out your last doobie . What do you know about the success of Reaganomics , did you lose your first booties ?
I think it's useless to try and converse with you, horse. You provide no answers but demand others answer your queries. See ya after the impeachment...
Those who believe that the top one percent stole it all from the bottom , are blind to realization that the bottom ten percent didn't have it to to be stolen to begin with ? Those WITHIN the top one percent change places as upwards or downwards as the bottom percentage .
Nobody steals wealth or acquires poverty , it's all simply earned or lost .
Can't reason with the unreasonable.
That one is perfect , economics however wasn't O's only bad grade in college . Maybe he really did inhale more than pot ?
That's right, take the attention off your beloved orange man-baby. Oh! The orange clown has a high regard for pedophiles now! Holy sh*t! Every week your idol tops himself! The POS declaring war on the middle class (broke campaign promise not to touch Medicare, SS, etc so his billionaire buddies can get a huge tax break), racist POS, lying sack of crap, takes credit for things he had nothing to do with, wants to destroy public education, wants to convert this country nto a 3rd word church/state, backs child predators (hell, he's in love with his own daughter), etc. etc and really hasn't one anything except repeal Obama's policy ( a guy he's obsessed with - it'll all get reinstated when the orange POS is either voted out or impeached). What's pathetic is that you're okay with this orange useless piece of crap.
You people won. When are you going to get over comparing your sorry choice to President Obama?
As long as it takes to prove the bias behind unfounded accusation. Perhaps as long as there is blind obstruction to true progress . Would I be then silenced because you wish it so .
Advice if offended , turn off your computer .
You lost! We are allowed to compare a lame president that talked with forked tongue to a President who is true to his word. We are still winning!
I continue praying for Obama but he makes that hard to do.
Kate, you're wasting your time trying to reason with the unreasonable, as some of us have discovered through long fruitless attempts.
Oh .........you kinda like my saying huh ?
Well, its either that or 'you didn't answer the question'. Anyway...
"After months of the liberal media ridiculing Trump over his claim that Obama spied on him during the election, Trump finally got vindication this week. America learned the truth on Tuesday that Obama did in fact unconstitutionally spy on Trump throughout the presidential election, leaving Barack Obama with his pants down yet again.
Now former intelligence officer Lt. Col Tony Shaffer just revealed that Obama’s wiretapping was not only a federal crime, but says that the results of this investigation will likely result in Obama being brought up on FELONY CHARGES. The colonel’s dire prediction about Obama’s future is sending shock-waves through the black hearts of liberals all across America today, as it’s now thrown a monkey wrench into Obama’s plans to stage his “political comeback” this fall.
In a a recent interview with Trending Today USA, Lt. Col Tony Shaffer called ‘Obamagate’ an “order of magnitude” even bigger than the Watergate scandal because the incident included “using nation-state resources for purposes of political gain.”
When asked if Obama could be arrested for violating the law, he said that it would be the “first time a former president could be indicted for a felony.”
“…I think it is very possible that he acted outside of the scope of his duties, responsibilities and authorities to turn the resources of a nation-state on a candidate. This is, as I’ve said before, soviet-dictator level wrongdoing,” he added.
Shaffer said that Obama using government resources to spy on Trump was for the sole purpose of getting Hillary into office, as Obama hoped the wiretapping would produce enough “dirt” on Trump to sabotage his presidential run."

Obama might beat Hillary to Leavenworth?
Tony knows. All sane Americans would welcome Obama being held to account.
It will never end. They are on an endless loop of Obama, Hillary, fake news. We have tried. As Randy said, let them squeal. We can try to have discussions without them. I stopped posting here once before because of them, came back when I noticed their absence, have been struggling to maintain reasonable discussions since then. Ignore, ignore, ignore. That is how I am going to handle it.
