Many Americans who voted for President Barack Obama did so with the expectation that he would lead the nation in the direction of racial reconciliation. How has he performed?
Jennifer Gratz, executive director of WordsMatter 2012, has released a new video that explores this question.
During his 2008 campaign, candidate Obama told Americans that we have a “tragic history” when it comes to race. At the same time, he said the country wanted to “move beyond these kinds of divisions,” and that we were ready for something different.
The video entitled: “Obama: A Post Racial President?” takes a hard look at the record. Recall that before he was in command of the facts, Obama interjected himself and stirred tensions in the case involve the Cambridge Police Department in Massachusetts. Most recently, Vice President Joe Biden was called out for his “back in chains” comment during an appearance in Richmond.
Gratz became a national civil rights leader when she successfully challenged race preferences in admissions at the University of Michigan. She was the plaintiff in the U.S. Supreme Court case Gratz v. Bollinger. Writing for the majority, then Chief Justice William Rehnquist declared that the university’s point system was unconstitutional.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
