President Obama’s election was played up by the media as a harbinger of racial healing in America. Liberals claimed that with the election of the first black president, we could finally move into a post-racial era where black and white would no longer matter.
Fast forward 8 years and the racial tension and animus is far higher than it was in 2009. This is primarily because of Obama and the liberal media’s insistence on stoking anger and blanket-blaming white people for every problem suffered by minorities.
The latest example of the the Left’s divisiveness can be seen in the Congressional Black Caucus’ move to re-introduce legislation that will set up a commission to determine if blacks should receive reparations for slavery. Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), has proposed the bill at the start of each new Congress for over 20 years.
The Washington Examiner reports that the bill would create a commission to both ascertain if reparations are warranted and to come up with an apology for the “racial and economic discrimination against African-Americans.” The bill is a response to the “fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States,” according to the text.
This announcement comes on the heels of the latest racist attack perpetrated by blacks on innocent whites. In Chicago, a group of black teens kidnapped and tortured a white, 18-year old special needs man and posted it to Facebook. The media has done everything in its power to bury the story and has been fairly successful. Interesting that the Congressional Black Caucus has nothing to say about this hate crime but finds time to clamor for reparations.
The era of “hope and change” has done nothing but erode race relations in the US. According to a new Pew Research Center poll, 48 percent think that “race relations are generally bad,” a 20 year high. Obama recently said in an interview that he had improved relations during his presidency, which is clearly delusional. The Left is to blame for the current atmosphere, as they have done nothing but promote hatred of whites throughout the media and carry water for racist groups like BLM, despite the violence its disciples have wrought throughout the country. Racial healing did not occur on Obama’s watch, but it certainly can start under a Trump presidency if the liberal media will allow it.
