On Powertalk with Lorraine Jacques-White we talked about politics and President Obama’s impact on race in America. Studies have revealed that man black are no longer excited about Obama, and it is mainly due to the fact that they feel he hasn’t done enough for the African-American community. In addition, some feel President Obama is not black enough, and leans towards pleasing white America.
Our special guest was Allison Samuels from Newsweek Magazine and The Daily Beast. She wrote an interesting article entitled “Is Obama Making The Racial divide Worse?”. The article looks at a Poll done by Newsweek Magazine, that reveals America is still divided on race. This article can be found on The Daily Beast Website. Allison Samuels along with the Power Talk listeners gave their perspective on this issue.
