The very concept of “race relations” is a silly concept. In a world that was natural and right, the races would not be forced to live side by side, competing for scarce resources and political power.
Most people don’t have a real insight into how blacks and whites interact anyway. The poll results above don’t really so much say anything about how blacks and whites feel about each other as how they think the races ought to feel about each other.
Black Lives Matter have pulled back the curtain on black’s true feelings, for which whites who value truth and honesty should be thankful.
The relevant questions are
1. Why should the races be forced to live and work in close proximity to each other?
2. Why should anyone think race relations are good when blacks victimize whites so often by rape, murder, robbery, etc.
Public opinion surveys highlight this racial restlessness. Not long after he took office in 2009, a New York Times/CBS News poll suggested two-thirds of Americans regarded race relations as generally good. In the midst of last summer’s racial turbulence, that poll found there had been a complete reversal. Now 69% of Americans assessed race relations to be mostly bad.
An oft-heard criticism of Obama is that he has failed to bring his great rhetorical skills to bear on the American dilemma, and prioritised the LGBT community’s campaign for equality at the expense of the ongoing black struggle.
But while he was happy to cloak himself in the mantle of America’s first black president, he did not set out to pursue a black presidency. He did not want his years in office to be defined by his skin colour.
This brief passage from a long BBC article extolling the virtues of Obama offers some arguable points. From the perspective of white race realists, everything Obama was truly concerned with involved race. Contrary to the assertion by the BBC, his presidency could easily be argued to be a black presidency, even if his White House dinners were not KFC and grape drink.
