Holder, Obama have made race relations worse

John Fund and Hans Von Spakovsky:
Attorney General Eric Holder insisted to MSNBC earlier this month that “we are in a better place than we were before” in race relations since Barack Obama was elected president.

The president doubled down in an interview with NPRlast week. Asked if race relations were worse since he took office, he said, “No, I actually think that it’s probably in its day-to-day interactions less racially divided.”

But that’s not what the American people see. A Pew Research Center poll found that only 40% of Americans approve of the way Obama is handling race relations. Black approval is down to 57%, while approval among whites is down to 33%.

More young people under age 30, the age group who were most enthusiastic about electing the nation’s first African-American president, now disapprove of his performance on racial issues than approve. And Eric Holder has one of the lowest approval ratings of any public official.

Law-enforcement officials are appalled at the way the Obama administration exploited tragedies in Ferguson, Mo., and New York City to appeal to its political base. David Clarke, a Democrat who is the African-American sheriff of Milwaukee, doesn’t mince his words.

“The thing that disappoints me the most is some very powerful people in this country — the president of the United States, Attorney General Eric Holder and Mayor Bill de Blasio of New York — have created a pathway that contributes to an unjustifiable hatred of law enforcement officers across the country,” he told WMAL radio in Washington, DC. “They trashed an entire profession with a broad brush because it was politically expedient for them to do so.”
Any administration that has as a race advisor Al Sharpton is unlikely to have much interest in racial healing.  He has a history of racial animus toward authority that he has continue to demonstrate in the current round of protests.

Obama and holder have truly made things worse and have appeal to the base instincts of people who believe something that is not true.


  1. With the Left, you always need remember they are using Liberalspeak, a language which sounds like English but has meanings not found in an reputable dictionary. From their standpoint, race relations are better because they are inflamed, bringing about an "honest conversation." Of course that "honest conversation" is based on a lie and politics, but again, that is what the the Left means by "honestly"
