What do you think the President is suggesting here? What economic policies has the President proposed to address or to lessen "racial tensions"?
I can name a couple of the President's policies that have exacerbated racial tensions - his constant drum beat that the rich should pay more and the less fortunate should benefit from the rich paying more - and, secondly, his push for immigration reform that gives illegals, mostly latino, legal access to the job market while working towards citizenship.
In the first case, the President is setting in the minds of the less fortunate that taking from the rich is acceptible - hell, if the President says we should take more from the rich, why not eliminate the middle man and simply steal from the rich. In the second case, the President is giving illegal latino immigrants a hand up to directly take jobs away from African Americans who have the largest percentage of the unemployment rate as it is, especially young black youth, and the President has done dick-all to address the African American unemployment.
Now, let's hear your example of public policy that Obama has championed to ease racial tension and support minorities. You'll have trouble, because part of Obama's political strategy is to exploit racial and class tensions.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
on another fourm this morning I was talking to a guy about race, I dont remember the exact words but the quote did not say anything at all about race to me, nothing. I mentioned that to him and he said. "I can read between the lines." Maybe everyone just has hyperactive imaginations.

There's a reason that every group targeted for racism has turned on the new group that has come into this country. It's competition.
Edit: that might be the problem between Obama and a lot of Americans. He might treat Americans as more intelligent than they are.

Well, if Obama is worried about jobs, as reported in the article, he should look in the mirror - he's the main culprit in the jobless "recovery". He's been focusing on jobs like a laser for so long he's burned a hole through any stock in truth he ever had.
