    Did Obama divide this country (USA) in terms of race (white and black)?

    Has he set us back decades in terms of racism?  If you say yes, provide examples and instances of what he did to support your answer.  If yes, will this country recover?

    The short answer is no. All his presidency did was to shine a light on an already divided country. Issues that went unnoticed by the press where suddenly front and center because we have an African American President. These problems existed before Obama and many will exist after he is gone.   As for recover I don’t know. The country is always going to change. We are not the same country today as we were say 8 years ago, 80 years ago or even 8 days ago. Change can be good.

    He was elected as a uniter while hinting if you didn't vote for him, you were racist.
    Since then, he's demonized whites and openly pushed federal contracting regulations that give preferences to companies with social engineering programs per the Tulane "Unconscious Bias" program, which says all whites are racists and all men are sexist and all heterosexuals are homophobic until they publicly flagellate themselves to prove they are not.

    Obama widened the divide in terms of race, but also gender preference, and illegal immigration. So it is more of a triple threat than a single divide.

    The biggest divide of the US is the democrat versus republican divide which includes the triple threat.

    In no terms whatsoever can Obama be responsible for any Unity for the US in his almost 8 years in office.

    The bigger threat is the two party threat as they have made the impotent, and totally divided. The triple threat is just the mechanics of that divide.

    As long as the parties are deep Red and deep Blue the country cannot recover. To recover the parties need to think Purple or any shade.

      Yes, as long as we have two parties who only see their jobs as opposing each other nothing will change. We need representation in our representatives. But really purple? Maybe a true third party?

      Purple is red and blue compromising on issues, a third party would just be a referee. Can't there be some way to find common gnd for the common good? What we have today is a continuing decline since the 60s because R is R and B is B. L and R no Fwd

      Compromise is a four letter word to many in DC. We need compromise but I don't see it coming from our current crop of contenders.  D is forward R is reverse and P and N is what we have in DC today Park and Neutral.

      Purple really? ;-)

      Neither D or R is forward.

    Absolutely not. It showed the degree of racism still rampant in the halls of power. And if Hillary wins, the misogyny will come booming out of the closet. It already has. Incredibly, people say she's not qualified. It's what you call the Last Gasp of the Old Order. Naturally, those spoiled by it don't want to see it go. Obama was amazing for black people and for women, imo. And personally, I think we  who have been suppressed have a strong desire not to do it to anyone else. Versus the starts quo power, which NEVER admits to doing ANYTHING wrong. Obama is a uniter. He unites the invisible people to the rights granted them for residing on this soil.
