Good luck with that.
To the claim of being more racially divided since Obama as if he caused a division or even as if being more divided is even real or just a misguided perception by some (not unlike how Trump might project that crime is worsening--make America what?--in a period when stats show crime down), what are the objective measures of that? Is there a mathematically correct race relations index which accounts for all the actual (as opposed to merely perceived) aspects be they economics, matters of opportunity, educational access, violence within and between communities, interracial marriages, wage disparities, intermixed communities, etc, etc whatever might be all those many factors. And all of that reduces down to some sauce that has been measured in a consistent way over decades to produce this index which might conveniently show race relations have deteriorated during the tenure of a black president? Really? Or do you just go over to infowars who's glad to tell you what to think because they are, what, looking out for your best interests?
So given the unique ability to google now that all our libraries have been burned to the ground, to look at data instead of propaganda, here's a few quick things I found.
On perception, I found this Galluphttp://www.gallup.com/poll/1687/race-relations.aspx
So that shows a perception of whites that race relations deteriorated beginning in 2013. Obama's presidency runs current from 2009, so is the argument that it took him four years to fuck it up? Now I'd imagine that to be president he must be fairly efficient in time management. Why did it take him so long? And it shows a perception of blacks that race relations deteriorated beginning with Bush in 2001, not improving until Obama's first term.
When did that downhill slide start in the perceptions of whites? Oh that's 2007 to 2008. Under Bush, yes?, before improving some in Obama's 1st term, What else took place then? Wasn't that the housing crash and the Great Recession when so many jobs were lost? What were the job losses among the black population at that time of declining perception on the parts of whites of race relations compared to the losses of jobs of white folk?
Oh, what a surprise! Maybe that had something to do with perception? And while we're at it, why didn't people at that time blame a decline of relations on then pres Bush? Why not him then, but Obama now?
So now back to that perception graph, What it shows is that the perception of race relations actually improved during Obama's first term, both the perception of whites (by 2 points) and of blacks (by five points). And then it declines. Why? Obama who enjoyed a perception of increasingly better race relations up until then? Or did something else happen? Let's google some more for grins...http://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2016/06/27/2-views-of-race-relations/
So here we see a graph of perceptions overlaid on top of events and what do we find....
Oh, so maybe it wasn't Obama. Maybe there were other forces at play.
Is that data reflected anywhere within the fiction infowars tells you in their propagandist version of "the news"?
If they are right and Obama has hurt relations between the races, then why during his term has approval for interracial marriage, for our intimacies, continued to improve?
Where's the corresponding downturn of inter racial intimacy which would show race relations have deteriorated during Obama?
If the data does not fit, the propagandist infowars is full of shit.
