    I tend to agree. I think the divide is between the People and the government. I mean, of course there are racists, there will always be racists, on all sides. But, the problems seem to stem from government actions- police, prosecutors and judges who steadfastly refuse to admit that they have systemic problems.

    I like Mr. Obama but I completely disagree. Under the slight veneer of equality applied following the civil rights era I think racism had continued as always and, perhaps, deepened. It is ingrained into the psyche and institutions of the nations to the extent that I don't believe you can avoid being, at least to some extent, racist. We must remember that this nation was founded by white supremacists as were all its institutions - legal, scientific, academic, social and law enforcement. I consider myself something of a miracle as I was raised as a white man in the pre-civil rights, Jim Crow south by a working class, uneducated white family that taught me to hate racism. Yet I have, simply from the society I lived in, survivals of hatred I wish could be scrubbed out of my brain. Such things as a carp is a 'nigger bass' or doing a shoddy job is 'nigger rigging' it. This is from the world we grew up in and it's stain will persist especially as long as so many insist it doesn't exist.

    the media divides this country. Fox news and right wing rhetoric are 100% the problem in the U.S. not to mention the gullible who take this information as fact and act out on it

    I honestly believe he's just trolling now. He knows his Presidency is effectively over, and he's less than four months away from officially being a lame duck, so now he's just fucking with people.

      I honestly believe that you are completely wrong, and that he is trying desperately to use the power of the office to help the nation as much as he possibly can.

        Now I'm pretty sure you're trolling. I get party loyalty, but the suggestion that President Obama is trying to "help the nation as much as he can" is laughable.

          You honestly imagine the president is a mustache-twirling villain intent on doing evil for its own sake?

          Why?

            Do I think he's tying damsels to railroad tracks, or kicking puppies off cliffs? No.

            I don't think the President is evil-- hell, by all accounts he seems like a really nice guy. I think he's completely ineffectual, intransigently partisan, and ideologically misguided, but I don't think he's evil.
