He's ruined race relations.We came together after 9/11 and now we're divided as ever.


I recall Muslim Americans being treated like sh*t after 9/11, what world do you live in sir?


I recall people bending over backwards not to treat them that way because they were ours and Americans too, but maybe my part of the country is different than yours?

I know it inspired me to learn about Islam because I felt I ought to better understand my Muslim students at the time.


That's great! I applaud you (seriously) because you are a teacher and you wanted to understand your students and not alienate them.

That being said...your story is one story. There indeed was anti muslim sentiment at the time. emotions were high. people died horribly. i know because i live about 20 miles away from where it happened....its hard to tell someone whose parent died in the twin towers that they are wrong for feeling a certain way.

"As painful as this week has been, I firmly believe that America is not as divided as some have suggested," Obama said
Obama didn't mention any critics by name


You people also have to take into consideration when and where your President made that statement.
This was the NATO-summit at Warsaw, Poland, afterall.

The tone the U.S. delegation wanted to set there was a firm united western-alliance, lead by a strong and morally confident USA...

and in that context - all # breaks lose in the U.S.

Realise that outside of the U.S., people are bewildered by the stupidity at display in the U.S.,
...so the question: "Mr. Obama, just what the hell is going on in your country?" comes up quite alot nowadays.

Racial division has only gotten worse over the last 8 years, and all the progress made in the last 50 years is being undone.


Not surprising, given that Obama's supporters have always been all too eager to play the race card against his political opposition and that Obama himself tends to treat incidents like the ones this week much more as a political/racial football rather than as a serious law enforcement issue.

Go to China or most other countries, they are all one race. America is tons of races together. Last night i was at a party with black, white, mexicans, asians. Relax.

It's people like YOU that divide your country.

It's blatantly obvious when you look in on the situation from a different vantage point.

In your anxiousness to get a dig in at me as quickly as you possibly could you have overlooked the very obvious part of my previous sentence that said "people LIKE you". Meaning not only yourself but many others who say the same things as you.

Now I know you're smart enough to not have made that mistake accidentally, so why intentionally misinterpret what I said?

The fact is, nobody has strived harder to divide this country than Right wing media. They questioned Obama, the secret Muslim gay socialist kenyan president from Day 1. They have fed the racists and xenophobics--- to the point that now, Republicans have their Frankenstein hate monster and the whole party is over-run with backwards hate-tards.

Obama has actually been frustratingly tolerant of Republican ignorance-- reaching across the isle to the hate-tards far to many times. But I respect him for taking the high ground. Something Trump and Republicans in general know nothing about.

Yet your so called right wing media is far far far less popular than the opponents media.

People (especially voters) need to look at who is really causing the problems and where the problems are manifesting.

And yet its been a LEFT WING TERRORIST organization that been behind Dallas, and VIOLENCE all across this country.

To borrow a phrase BLM is astroturf.

Yet...we aren't as divided as some have suggested...yet. Obama and BLM still have several more months to race-bait and play the race-card. As long as Obama is President things will continue to escalate.

Ah yes, it's a Left wing terrorist organization consisting of 1 person so far. And BLM thats a terrorist organization too right? Who else is a terrorist organization? Trump protesters? How many enemies can you label as a terrorist groups to further your agenda to divide the country?

Yes, thankfully the racist xenophobic media is vastly outnumbered. Like a bug trap tho, they sure collect a sh*t ton of racists-- and Republicans have aligned themselves with this breed of hate and ignorance-- much the same way Jerry Springer aligned himself with white trash.

Why is it, that as a white male, I don't feel race baited by Obama or BLM? What is it about a black guy trying to unite people behind peace and mutual respect that is so race baiting for some. Ponder it a bit.

This is exactly the plan.

The biggest joke of all, is the way people on the left behave.

You will protest on the streets against war, against police power, against the system that has oppressed you.

Once the protest is over, you BEG for larger government, more taxes, and you vote for war mongerers because they call themselves "progressive." Every time an issue arises, you beg the big daddy government to step in and fix it, because we alllllll know how that works.

What a JOKE.

a reply to: neo96>>. Obama pushes racial division and is anti police, then when he gets the desired results be does a 180 and says it isn't. I know Obama is not a rocket scientists and is only a stooge who has everything scripted for him and has handlers do everything for him, but how can he still have any credibility?

It's obvious by now that he lives in a different reality than we all do, this much is clear by now. Nothing new here, he's not presidential material.
