No president has done more to sow racial division than this one. America, unlike any European country, elected a minority to be its leader. And then he used the post not to bring us together, but to lecture us and divide us.
From the Washington Examiner:
President Obama called for the country to reckon with the history behind the restriction of voting rights, drawing a line between new laws that restrict the franchise to Jim Crow laws and slavery.
Obama said the United States is the only advanced democracy in the world that makes it harder for people to vote. It’s something the country must reckon with now, he said.
“That dates back. There’s an ugly history to that, that we should not be shy about talking about,” he said.
