President Barack Obama said racial tensions may partially explain his declining popularity among white voters, according to a story in the New Yorker magazine this week.
“There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president,” Obama said in the article by David Remnick, which was posted on the publication’s website yesterday and appears in the magazine’s Jan. 27 edition.
“Now, the flip side of it is there are some black folks and maybe some white folks who really like me and give me the benefit of the doubt precisely because I’m a black president,” Obama said in his most direct comments on how race has affected his political standing since he’s been in office.
Too bad he is a terrible president. Had he been a great leader he may have changed the view of the backward, racist white people that still exist. Who can argue with better living and jobs? Instead it seems he may have increased racial tensions.
Gettin' us into more wars and pushing for still more wars (and what not).

obozo can't even get a "race war" going with the avowed racist in the country - now that's a milestone.
People are beginning to see what a "communist" really is in america.
I'm sorry to burst your bubble but there are many whose dislike of him is rooted and empowered by the fact that he is a black president.
