Obama's embrace of the racial grievance industry has made the racial divide greater
Racial tensions have not been this bad since the seventies. I blame Al Sharpton and Obama's embrace of his style of demagoguery. Rather than engage in racial heeling, he veers into racial pandering. The leadership in places like Baltimore also play to this dynamic as do liberals in New York City. The Democrats seem to be doubling down on the failed polices of the past that are keeping blacks poor and dependent.
