Although the initial support was apparent during the campaign, the announcement that Barack Obama was officially the new president of the United Stated shifted the mentalities of many and masked perceptions of a Black president became a reality.

Safe to say, the country has set itself back very far as it pertains to race relations as Obama and his wife have been used as a spectacle and have been plastered with racial commentary from politicians and citizens.

Unfortunately for Obama, not addressing such harsh comments might not be in his best interests as he is still a representative for the Black community, and many are starting to believe that their voice may not be speaking for them.

With great Black minds such as Cornel West and Michael Eric Dyson gathered by Tavis Smiley, Minister Louis Farrakhan led the march on battling race relations and how misconception has developed that Obama is truly winning with his push for health care as the Black community is left at a standstill in relation to progress.

As time progresses, the safety of Obama is becoming uncertain as long as racist minds still exist and have the ability to enact their particular views to spread hate and ignorance.

Stay tuned for more as the entire symposium will be broadcast on C-Span on March 29 at 8:30 p.m. EDT/ 7:30 p.m. CDT.Source
